As time went by, the nursery morphed into something completely different. It all started because I found this rug and fell in love:
Even with the rug I figured I could have it be the one pop of color in a peach/gold dreamland. Then I remembered we had pretty blue velvet curtains from our last home folded in the hall closet. But wait, the curtain rods we purchased with those curtains were silver. And the light fixture we were moving from the twins room to the nursery was also silver.
So now Holland's peach and gold nursery is coral, blue, a tiny hint of peach, and a lot of silver/grey. Whoops. Sound a little familiar?
Regardless, I've loved putting her room together and am so proud of how thrifty we've been throughout the process. 90% of her nursery is furniture/items borrowed from another room in our home, the crib was $60 from Craigslist, the artwork above the crib was a floor sample and heavily discounted (from a Colorado Pottery Barn, no less - that was a fun phone call), and almost all purchased items came from Target or Ikea. I'm one of those who is almost as excited looking at the savings on a receipt as I am about the actual purchase, so allow me this glorious moment of putting together a nursery on a shoestring budget. The best part? I don't believe Holland will ever know the difference.
And with that... here's her room!
