Often from humble beginnings come great things:
A lot of people I know have their nurseries all decorated and ready months before their babies arrive. This was our nursery when I was about six months pregnant.
As I was no longer allowed to hang drywall (I can't imagine why), our good friend Barry came over to graciously lend a hand.
Luckily for us, the exterior walls in our 70 year old cottage were fairly well insulated so we were able to just put up a vapor barrier and slap up the drywall. Since I was no longer doing any major projects, we hired out the mudding.
My best friend's aunt made us these fabulous curtains. Thanks Aunt Cindy! We got the chair on sale at Babies R Us and our parents gave us the beautiful crib. The cross came from Hobby Lobby (Oh how I miss that place as there are none in the Low Country).
The crib bedding, accent pillows, and three prints are from this collection. I got the quilt on the full bed for $30 at T.J. Maxx.
I needed a place to put my computer so I could work from home after the baby was born. My husband built a floating desk in the closet and ran cable and electrical outlets to it. My computer later replaced those toys.
The photos don't really do it justice. It was a beautiful, bright, and fun room for a little girl to come home to. Yes I know ending a sentence that way is grammatically incorrect :-)
