I've had a couple readers asks me to do a post on Little Lady's bedroom. I put it off because it's not quite finished; I'd had hoped to add a rug and spruce up a few things. But we are getting the boys bunk beds for Christmas so in just a few short days she'll be inheriting one of their toddler beds and her room will change a little bit.
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. My sewing skills are very limited, but you'll see in the pictures below that I still 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.
The boys found the stick for the bird mobile, Maca sewed the birds, and I hot glued everything in to place. The crib and the dresser were hand-me-downs; I had plans to paint them but never found the time...#momlife
Jeremy made the shelved from scrap wood and Ikea braces. The blanket on the chair was my baby blanket.
I found the framed poster at a garage sale. The piggy bank is an hand-me-down from Big Buddy. The fabric covered boxes are ones I made (details here) and the lights are a target clearance find.
The embroidery hoops were a 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!
I found these cute little knobs on clearance at Anthropologie.
This bird cage is a hand-me-down from Maca; she purchased in Spain over 30 years ago.
I made this name sign from scrap wood, pretty papers, Mod Podge, ribbon, and a few staples.
Little Lady enjoying her shoe collection. She is not even two yet and already her bedroom floor is usually covered in shoes and clothes
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.
