our nursery is finished! (xp, pic heavy!)

...well, pretty much! I'd like to get some blinds yet, and a crib skirt.

I'm super proud of myself, because this was very inexpensive to decorate!

Standing in the doorway...

The curtains hung in my room when I was younger (again, want to get some blinds so it's darker for naptimes!)

I spray-painted this branch and cut out the butterflies using my Cricut. I found the branch idea here: http://dearlillieblog.blogspot.com/search/label/nursery It's all hung by clear wire. I have a few more butterflies left to hang, but you get the idea...

Her headband collection ( :help: ). Her hats are in the birdcage. I'm a knitter, and am obsessed with cute hats! We used the birdcage at our wedding for cards. I love that it's being used and not sitting in storage! I'm working on more hairbows for her collection. I bought a plain white frame, put a piece of coordinating patterned paper in it, and glued the ribbon in the back to hang her bows on. I made the fabric bunting w/leftover fabric from those circular things you see above the changing table (don't look at imperfections...it was my first time making a fabric banner!).

It looks fantastic, Ashley! I love that you have so many personal touches in there. Have you thought about making your own bedskirt?

I thought about it, but that's as far as it went. I am not good at sewing. Plus I just don't have the right tools (like a rotary blade cutter thing for one!).

I love that birdcage. It reminds me of the shabby chic style which I think can be so charming. I also love your homemade hair bow holder. That's a cute idea that I will have to keep in mind. Biggrin Overall, a very sweet room!

I love it! Very cute!

I like what you did for her headbands and bows. I need to look at that more closely. The girls can use some extra storage for their bows. I bought some bins at Walmart (small craft things...not sure what to call them, but they really are very small) that came in a small, medium, and large size. That is what I keep all their various sizes of ponytail holders in at the moment.
