in it's post-Katrina goodness. No, she doesn't sleep on a concrete slab and we did put up a few walls just for her :) I can't say this room has been done in my head awhile because it's really just been pieced together with different finds from salvage yards and thrift stores and the much beloved (atleast in this home) craigslist.
In making our kitchen a bit bigger we made the nursery a bit smaller, but little people don't need huge spaces and when she gets older and siblings come along she will get daddy's office. Since her room is tiny, the layout has already changed a few times and it will probably change in the future as well (hubby never knows what he is going to find when he gets home from school :) But for now there's the crib, dresser and play chest. I really want to find a big comfy chair for the corner with the toy chest and I've thought about doing a bookcase on either side of the crib but I'm not sure yet.
I found the portrait at Goodwill and made the pendants with some scrap fabic and taped (yup, scotch tap) it to the walls. The drapes are a Sears clearance bin find but looked like they were ready for the flood and we are done with floods so I added a pleat detail to the bottom with plain muslin. Striped rug is a Dash & Albert spurge. Sheepskin rug is a Tuesday Morning find. Lamp is a salvage yard find that got a fresh coat of white paint and the shade is from a lamp I had as a teen.
I made the mobil with random things from around the house. I cut the wire circles out of an old ikea paper lamp that we haven't used in forever and sprayed them white. Then I used scrape fabric to make ruffles, glued them on the strands of ribbon and hung them from the wire frame. I also hang some extra pieces from a chandelier we have that clink together and make a pretty sound. The most special part are the handwritten prayers and scripture written by family members on tags from my baby girls great-grandfather's workshop.

Goodwill stool (here's a before)
So, there it is. For now atleast; who know's what it will look like in a few months :)
I'm going to try and go room by room through the house to show yall what we have so far. Keep in mind there are places that are completely bare and I have no motivation to do yet but hey that's life huh.
Thanks for reading!
