It has been a few months since I posted anything about the nursery. When it comes to decorating, I always have the ideas in my head. Then when it comes to actually implementing them, it’s harder then I thought it would be! It’s overwhelming to undertake a whole room of baby stuff. We’re starting from scratch here! We don’t have any family close to borrow things from, and at times I have been overwhelmed by how much we need to buy! When you’re doing things on a budget, you have to get creative! See what I’ve been up to after the jump…
You can see my inspiration and mood board for the nursery here.
Our first purchase for the room was this glider from Costco and the accompanying Caitlin Wilson Designs pillow. I got the pillow here in Birmingham from my friend Victoria’s cute boutique called, “Cureture.” I’ve been drooling over Caitlin’s pillows for what seems like an eternity, and I finally got one! In my dreams, all my beds and couches are covered in her pillows. What a fantasy, huh?
The brown seaglass ball on the floor I was planning on hanging from the ceiling somehow, but we’ll see.
I have been collecting small items throughout the pregnancy that I was hoping would all fit together in the nursery. Here are some of those things, mostly picked off the Target clearance aisle, or from Home Goods. The coral shelves I found at an estate sale last summer and have been wanting a place to put them. The white piece of coral is actually a coat hanger my sweet friend Amy gave to me at my baby shower.
My Grandma Kathy gave me this framed mermaid embroidery at my baby shower, and I thought it was a fun addition.
The one thing I just couldn’t resist splurging on is this “Bla Bla” Mermaid Doll mobile. I can’t wait to hang it!
