Alright, who’s dying to see what we’ve done on the nursery since we painted it? As soon as Ben gave me a budget, I hit the ground running (a.k.a. we’re now on a first name basis with the FedEx guy:) This is just a peek!
First I ordered this trellis wool rug. It’s so soft and will be perfect for playing with our baby girl on. You can also see my neutral Craigslist rocker. This is seriously the most comfortable chair we’ve ever owned and I paid $75 vs $800+ for it! The Bali tripod end table help adds texture and warmth to the space.
Ben spent Sat morning putting the crib together in like 20 minutes. Walmart ended up having the best price with their site-to-store free shipping. I had no idea how much I would love this non-traditional black crib!
I got the fence post tops which are waiting to be added to our repurposed dresser so it will be tall enough for a changing table. Linen white curtains and a few pillows will be trimmed in this emerald green ribbon. The artwork came too!
I got another fantastic Craigslist deal on this barely used organic cotton mattress for $70 (it retails for $249)! A non-organic mattress would have cost $100+. It really pays to do your research and keep a hawk eye on CL.
Since the crib assembly was easy-peasy, Ben decided to go ahead and sand the dresser on Sat. I’ll be doing a full blog post on this project once it’s complete.
Last but not least, I have a friend making me some nursery pillows that these inserts are waiting to fill. $3 travel pillows from Walmart are the perfect size for a lumbar pillow and the back 18×18 square one was $10 at PB Outlet.
My mom is going to help me make a floor pouf and there are about 20 more projects I have in mind! What’s your favorite part of the nursery so far? Anyone think I’m cray cray for going with a black crib? Who else is addicted to CL?
