Now that I’m 38+ weeks pregnant, I finally have the nursery ready & wanted to share it before baby boy arrives! A few months ago I blogged about the bookshelf in my Kids Furniture Find post when I found it at a consignment shop near me. Since then I’ve bought the crib & changing table there, then gathered most of the rest of the accessories from thrift stores, & the rest I already owned or couponed (I’ll note which finds I’m talking about under each picture)
Before I found out the gender, I already had a feeling b/c I kept thinking ONLY about boy designs & themes! I think part of that has to do w/the fact that my husband is a pilot & we already had a lot of airplane / masculine art & decor. I also already had a few nautical pictures (b/c I love the beach) so I decided to do a “boats & planes” theme w/navy & white as the main colors w/little pops of baby blues & red. The wood accents I chose are a middle-tone shade & espresso. I had so much fun decorating this room & can’t wait to bring him home into this space!
I’ve learned throughout this pregnancy that baby prep is EXPENSIVE! But by offsetting the things you can’t avoid buying full-price w/items that are second-hand, it was doable. What baby budget tips do you have? Comment below!
