Averi's Nursery Room is Complete

After months of planning and preparing, Averi's nursery room is finally complete! I made a few final purchases and placed a couple more things on the wall so I think I am finally satisfied.

First, I had a leftover quilt clip so I decided to hang the pillow sham that came with the crib bedding. It was either that or turn it into a throw pillow which I did not have a need for so the wall art was an obvious choice. I hung it over the bookshelf to draw your eyes up on that wall and give it height. We found the cutest pink and white bird lamp to replace the boring, old satin nickel lamp with plain white shade that sat on the bookshelf. We got the lamp at Home Goods for only $30 and it looks just like the Pottery Barn Kids one only much less expensive!

I also purchased a pink, wooden toy bin at Home Goods for $50. It can be used also be used as a nighstand or table and it can hold a lot of toys so it was worth every penny!

I finally got around to stopping at Goodwill and found a wicker basket with tags for $5 and made my own liner out of pink gingham fabric that I already had. The basket is sitting next to the rocking chair for easy access to anything that I'll need for feedings but it could also be used as a laundry basket.

My favorite addition has been the wooden wall letters that spell "AVERI" which we hung above the closet doors. They came from Hobby Lobby and only cost $2 each. I painted them the same light pink that is on one of the walls in the room. I really want to add brown and/or white polka dots to the letters to make them stand out more.

The final total spent for this nursery room on a small budget is right around $500.
