Even though I've never considered her room "finished" I love it. When we got pregnant with Little Lady we didn't have extra money in our budget for decorating a nursery but I really wanted a pretty space for my little girl. God provided in some amazing ways. Including paint and everything we've spent around $170 on her room and a large portion of that was an unexpected baby gift from a relative. Our big splurge was fabric; I fell in love with Timeless Treasures' Perch collection. With it my mother-in-law (aka Maca) created crib sheets, a dust ruffle, curtains, pillows, and stuffed birds. I can't sew but you'll see in the pictures below that I came up with a couple uses for the fabric scraps. I purchased a few other treasures on clearance or at garage sales but everything else is a hand-me-down of some sort.

everything in to place. the crib and the dresser were hand-me-downs; i had plans to
paint them but never found the time.

fun find, i had asked for some on freecycle thinking i could possibly get a few cheap
wooden ones and ended up with a dozen vintage metal hoops!

Hope you enjoyed this little tour. I am setting a goal for myself to post some pictures of kids room after we switch up their beds. Maybe it will inspire me to declare the rooms "finished" sooner rather than later.
