Nursery Reveal on a budget

Twin sheets,$14:  I really really wanted some super cute Pottery Barn Kids car sheets that went with the Madras quilt, but at $50+, I just couldn’t justify it.  So instead, I saw that Target was having a sale on sheets one week and grabbed a set... 00 : I also really wanted this small pillow that matched the twin bedding to go on the rocker.  I just couldn’t justify a $50 pillow – crazy.  But thanks to ebay, I was able to score this exact same pillow cover, brand new, with no personalization for $20. Twin Madras Quilt & Sham, $20:   I REALLY wanted this bedding from Pottery Barn Kids but we kind of have Pottery Barn taste on a Walmart budget. Ottoman, $98 : This is one of the few purchases that I’ve made in my life that I really regret and am really upset about, but I’ll admit it really works in the room. Madras pillow on rocker, $26. 59:  I found this matted print set on Etsy and Aaron and I both loved it.  It’s rare that we find things that we are both crazy about, so I knew we had to get this set. Bookshelf, $0:  This was my bookshelf in college and has moved from room to room in our current house and was perfect for baby’s room. Baby bedding, $80: I bought this alligator baby bedding YEARS before we became pregnant. 99:  I’ve really been loving all the bold navy and white stripe curtains I’ve seen on Pinterest for boy’s nurseries lately but after 1) tracking down who the heck is selling these – hint: it’s not major chains or hardly anywhere on the internet,... The average cost of putting together a nursery is around $1,000 so I feel like we did pretty well, especially since a lot of it we purchased before we were even pregnant so we never spent one huge chunk of money at a time on it. Now, the only...  After a call to Aaron to be sure I wasn’t crazy, I bought it.  It was certainly a risk since we weren’t pregnant yet and didn’t know if we’d ever have a boy, but now I’m so glad we grabbed it. Curtains, $15.  But one day while searching google for ideas on how to paint curtains to look like this, I found a link to  West Elm  where they had a cotton shower curtain that was exactly what I was looking for.  I really liked that it was yellow, chevron, large, and could really go in any room in our house.  After we got our rocker from Craigslist (again, before I was even pregnant), I wanted to find an ottoman to go with it that would be able to be used with a boy or girl one day. 99 at Michaels but I found a 50% off coupon, printed out 4 of them, and was fortunate enough to get a great cashier who kindly used all 4 coupons for me, on my 4 frames. com long ago and loved it, but never thought to buy it since it sold for over $120 for 4 pieces then and we didn’t even have a baby yet – but I kept the idea in the back of my mind for one day.  So I’m not totally in love with it, but it does work really well in the room and since we can’t return it, we might as well use it since we have it.  I’m still not sure what possessed me to spend almost $100 on an ottoman, but I’m trying to...  I think I was wanting to complete the rocker/ottoman “set” so badly that I overlooked the huge price tag and the fact that this was an outdoor ottoman. Aaron and I are super proud of being able to fix up and decorate our house on a tight budget so of course, this knowledge wouldn’t be lost on our baby boy’s nursery.  Aaron’s mom is obsessed with alligators and that slowly became a theme for us and we always talked about doing a boy’s nursery in alligators.  I put that money away for the nursery and once we knew the gender, I decided to put it into this bedding.  I just knew that I loved it and green would go with any gender plus I loved the price so we grabbed it and have just been saving it ever since.  You’d never be able to tell his curtains used to be a shower curtain.  That’s not really in our budget, but then I sold a few items from my own Etsy store and was able to use a credit of $26.  The quilt and sham came as a set at PBK.  I found this one on One Kings Lane , which is a flash sale site.  Aaron and I painted both pieces white when we moved into our house and just pulled them from another room for the nursery.  The adorable monogrammed backpack was a gift from our sweet friends, Katie & BriAnne, and the hipster hat was a gift from my sister. I really wanted Keaton’s room to be something he could grow into – not too babyish or too match-matchy.  Much later, I was in a Target store and there was ONE set of it on the end of an isle with a huge RETURN UNOPENED sticker on it.  And, it was marked down to around $80. *I also want to put a disclaimer that I am VERY aware that our ability to create an affordable nursery was not without the help of our friends and family.  It was a bit plain so I decided to paint the back of it to spruce it up a bit, thanks to a sample can of paint from Lowes.  I wanted the hamper still so I bought some red/blue fabric and had my mother-in-law sew a new liner to replace the girly one. Twin Bed, Dresser, & night stand $0: This set was my dad’s when he was a little boy. Additional nursery art, $0 : The rest of the artwork in the room is all thanks to my rocking sister.  Thanks to that $120 I put towards the purchase plus a small Paypal credit, I paid $20.  So I did a nursery that was fit for a baby OR a little boy.  Without their generosity, help, and resources, we wouldn’t have been able to do half of the things we’ve done in our house, and certainly not on a budget. on bookshelf are Aaron’s or mine from when we were little or gifts from sweet friends and family.  We knew beforehand that the crib was recalled by Pottery Barn for the drop sides, but with a simple phone call, I ordered a free conversion kit and all was fixed.  In knowing this, right before we found out the sex of the baby, I took a huge load of clothes that I don’t wear anymore to an upscale consignment shop here in Cary and made $120 from what they bought.  I know many people don’t have such gifts and I just wanted to mention that I am so grateful and aware of those blessings in our lives. Changing pad on dresser, $2: I grabbed this at The Kid’s Exchange at the NC Fairgrounds for just $2 in excellent condition.  A quick wipe down with a lysol wipe, and it was ready to go.  The green cover was a shower gift.  I’ll reveal our completed nursery here and list prices and how we put it all together.  Most of these curtain panels were at least $50 PER PANEL on Etsy.  But to buy it, personalize it, and ship it from Pottery barn was going to be around $50.  I didn’t want to have to repaint or re-decorate in a year or two when he’s not a baby anymore either.

What to make from scraps of polar fleece?

I have some polar fleece scraps- not enough to make a blanket but enough to make something like a book cover or something. I have a wolf pattern I used to make a sweatshirt that I really like however I do have enough to make another. I also have some sherpa scraps. I was thinking of making booties but I can't find the right pattern. I'm 16, so nothing for little kids/babies or anything! Thanks for your time! oof! I just laid out what I have and it's really scrappy...

I like to make headbands/ear warmers out of scraps. Your scraps have to be long in the stretchy direction for this to work. If you have pets or friends with pets you can make little scarves for them (for next Christmas?) or you can sew them together like a crazy quilt and make little quilts for the pets. Polarfleece can also make a cozy throw pillow for a bed. Best of luck.

bed sets.. am i just being picky?

just got a new mattress and new bed frame, so i wanted to get a new bed set as well. im not used to buying bed things, so yeah. im used to having some ordinary sheet on my bed, random pillow cases, and a down comforter to sleep with. i went to multiple department stores to get a bed set and i was NOT impressed. most bed sets come with 6-10 pieces.. thats not the problem. my biggest problem is the comforter and patterns that come in these sets. all the patterns are really ugly indian-rug style patterns. and they are all quilty. all the nice thick ones that actually have some weight and "luxury" feel to them, ALL have this problem. they are all quilt like. all indian rug styled, and they ARENT soft. then you have your second option. find a decent acceptable, lines/square pattern style bed set..but everything is polyster and makes you sweat, the sheets are see-thru thin, and the comforter weighs maybe 1 pound and is as thick as a sleeping bag. where can i find a DECENT set? i just want a set that comes with a comforter that isnt middle eastern crazy crap, and isnt rough to the touch.

Here are a few choices :http://www.crateandbarrel.com/marimekko- bottna-slate-bed-linens/f47487 Here you buy your own insert :http://www.crateandbarrel.com/marimekko- kivet-black-bed-linens/f44954 You can pick the comforter from here. They give you a choice of warmth :http://www.thecompanystore.com/LaCrosse% C2%AE-Primaloft%C2%AE-Deluxe-Comforter-/ -Duvet/ct18-ps-r12,default,pd.html?start =1&cgid=comforters-down-alternative< br /> These look amazing for under your comforter :http://www.thecompanystore.com/Charisma% C2%AE-Chevron-Blanket/KN70,default,pd.ht ml?dwvar_KN70_color=LINEN&start=8&am p;q=blankets These sheets are the best in the world. They do not have chemicals in them that make them a hot sateen or non-wrinkle.They are old fashion sheets and are the most comfortable .If you don't want the scallop detain, order it in white or just put them on your bed backwards.

I don't know what your price range is or the bed size you are seeking, but I can suggest a couple of stores. Linens n Things - http://www.lnt.com/ Bed Bath & Beyond - http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/ Go to your local mall and check out the higher end stores like Macy's, Dillards and the like. Actually go into the bedding department and talk to a sales person about what you are looking for and he or she should be able to help you find what you are looking for easily. If it's at all possible, you'll want to make your purchase at a physical store where you can see and touch the product and make sure that it is what you want, rather than try to guess/interpret from a picture and description on a web site. You could also check out IKEA for the duvet/comforter inserts - which range from lightweight polyester to down and down-alternatives - and purchase a duvet cover for it, Hope this helps and that you find what you are looking for soon.

I just ordered 2 beautiful sets from Kinglinen.com. Look up their coupon code and you get 25% off and free shipping. I was VERY impressed with the quality and prices. The clearance had $159.00 bed in a bag for $59.00 and they shipped fast! Good luck.

If you want the ultimate in comfort and durability go to Royal Caribbean .com and buy their Duvet and sheet sets. i went on a cruise, fell in love with the sheets and bought them when I got home. so soft, softer with every washing, won.t shrink EVER. Not cheap but will last years. They only come in white so you might want to buy a duvet cover in a color or pattern or better yet, make one. Easy even for a non-sewer like me.

bed bath and beyond or what I like is homegoods you pay less but they are quality sets like nautica and royal velvet and they have nice pattern duvets skirts and quilts too i just get one quilt set and when I get tired of the quilt i put it in a duvet of a different color or pattern.
