Pink, Grey, and Aqua Nursery on a Budget!

Pink Grey and Aqua Nurse on a Budget!Pink Grey and Aqua Nurse on a Budget!It has been a few months since my last update on the budget nursery I have been working on, a lot has happened since then! Miss Elizabeth has arrived happy and healthy and the nursery is complete and ready for occupancy As promised it is time for the big reveal.  You may remember the mood board from my earlier post, over all I stayed pretty true to the original idea except where I found even bigger savings. The only items I did not use where the VETTRE nightstand for $50 which we were able to substitute with a $5 thrift store find, and the SONGE Round Mirror for $50 which was a big chunk of the budget but could still be added later when the budget allows.

Pink Grey and Aqua Nurse on a Budget!I chose the Ikea POÄNG Chair with a natural cover for $69 at Ikea but I actually found my chair at another furniture store that was going out of business for only $45. It is very similar in style to the Ikea POÄNG but this one is actually a rocker and has an adjustable foot rest. More chair for less money, it was a great find. The side table is a $5 thrift store find and lamp was as well. The lamp base was $5 and with a coat of silver paint looks brand new. The shade was $2 to which I added some 3D flowers I made myself for a little girlie flair.

The antiques dress was also a thrift store find for $70. It has a great patina and when paired with the pretty pink Berta gingham fabric from Ikea it really pops. I also used this fabric on the crib sheet and in the bunting flags, which at $9 a yard was a good deal for good quality fabric. The crib skirt is Premier Prints Gotcha Twill in Storm and again this is a great quality fabric for only $7.50 a yard and the scraps went into the bunting as well. Just $70 worth of fabric got this nursery fit for a princess.

I tied it and together with the Ikea GISLEV low pile rug in grey for only $20. I accessorized with gifts from the clients friend  and all the shower decorations which are now re-purposed as nursery decor. Add a hand me down crib and curtains and a storage bench borrowed from another room and you get a  nursery perfect for a new baby girl!

I don’t know if you have been calculating but this precious nursery put together almost entirely from hand me downs and thrift store finds cost less than $350.

Quite a bargain!!!
