WEEK EIGHTEEN: Baby Room Completed!!

BABY'S NEW ROOM IS READY TO GO----
Well, not much to be said other than HERE IT IS! 99% finished...

The last piece which my super-talented sewing-diva mother-in-law is making for us--custom bumper pads, crib skirt and drapes in dark teal--check out the fabric below!

All and all, the entire project wasn't that huge of an undertaking financially which was our goal. As we've learned, baby stores out there prey on us poor "first-timers" with their crib sets + coordinates..and everything in between. Our aim was to still bring baby home to some style but do it without breaking the bank!!

HERE'S THE BREAKDOWN:
BASICS
Paint ~ Benjamin Moore (Jalapeno Pepper + White);$50
Shelving ~ IKEA; $30
Plant - Salisbury Garden Center;$40
Fabric ~ Calico Corners (Slick Outdoor Aquamarine; $25/yrd) -- see below

FURNITURE/DECOR
Antique Dresser - check out WK #16
Baby Changing Table - check out WK #16
Rocking Chair - Baxton Studio Chair; $150
Crib - Graco; $180
Green Poof/Foot Stool - CB2; $80
Lights - IKEA; $50











And, last but not least, our fabric for the bumper, crib skirt and drapes:
**The plan is to post an update on our sewing project in the coming weeks with patterns and pictures to boot!
