The nursery

Ever since I found out my hubby and I are having a baby girl, I have been dreaming of her nursery. I am such a girly-girl, thanks to my mom, who decorated my room growing up with pink heart wallpaper and a ruffly, pink canopy bed (I seriously need to find a photo of my room to show you!).  And so it's no surprise that my lil' babe will have a room full of frills and lots of pink.  I picture a calm, soft room and I imagine rocking her in a comfy chair close to the window as I watch the Minnesota winter turn into spring.

As far as any "theme" I love the shabby chic look with a hint of vintage.  Oh, my poor husband...

Here is the inspiration board I put together with some of the elements I am loving for the nursery:

  • Crib - Jenny Lind style, found on Chic Cheap Nursery thanks to Jessica of Live the Fancy Life.  This crib is super affordable and is carried at Target, Giggle, Walmart, Babies R Us, etc.  I found it for the best price ($150) and shipping at Walmart (of all places, right??!!)
  • Changing table - Jenny Lind style, coordinates with the crib and found at all the same stores as above
  • Oh How I Love Thee print - Etsy, frame unknown
  • Rose petal wall hooks - Anthropologie
  • Mirror (a different one than is shown) - already purchased at Marshalls for $40
  • Shabby Chic dresser - purchased used from my friend for $150, but can be found at Target
  • Chandelier - purchased years ago at Home Depot for $89 (the same one I always hang from the white tent for events!)
  • Flower hardware - Anthropologie
  • Pink stripe glider chair - Target
  • Rose fabric (for bedding and curtains) - Baby Bedding (I don't plan on getting a bumper)
  • Baskets for storage - found through my sister-in-law Nikki (who just had a beautiful baby girl, Chloe) of Lovely Scribbles, can be found at Walmart

Erik and my budget for the nursery is $1,500 and I think I'll easily stay within that.  I just can't get too carried away.  So what do you think?  Do you have any recommendations for the best places to find nursery decor or any ideas of items that I haven't thought of??
