So there you have it! Definitely spent more than I had planned, but it was all worth it. There were things I could have saved on and things I could have lived with out, but I have no regrets. I'm so happy with how it turned out, and I hope my little man enjoys this room.



  2. How did you get the glider chair? Is it something you saw and ordered in a store? I didn't see anything like it on their website?

    1. Yes, the glider was ordered in the store. I was never able to find it online anywhere. Oh and it has been worth every penny for making it easier for me to breastfeed this first week with my baby.

  3. This room looks great! I appreciate that you provided such a thorough budget breakdown and source list. A very helpful post, indeed. Now following your blog!

  4. What size did you get for the animal prints (above the crib)?

  5. How has your glider held up over time? We looked at one like it today, but want something that will stand the test of time. Thanks!
