I’ve almost finished Busby’s Nursery!
It’s only taken 8 months, but the end is in sight. I wanted to share the Nursery with you all (finally).
So firstly, the Nursery furniture. We were very fortunate with Busby’s cot as it was my cousin’s that my Uncle gave to us. This saved us a considerable amount of money!
1. We found this amazing chest-of-drawers-cum-changing-station at the Ardingly Antiques Fair a few months ago for £50! It’s perfect for changing Busby on (although I have found myself moving her onto the floor now she can properly move… and launch), and the drawers are very spacious.
2. I also found the mini teal chest of drawers at the Ardingly Antiques Fair two years ago, and they fit in wonderfully.
3. The other chest of drawers (Baby has lots of clothes!) is from IKEA – I used it in the old flat for my craft equipment. It’s not the most exciting piece of furniture, but it serves a purpose for now. I have big plans for it in September when I have some baby-free time. More on that to follow next month.
Next up is the theme. I chose a woodland theme because I’m a bit obsessed with owls. I created this mini memory wall using postcards I found in Tiger and Paperchase, and made the canvases and fabric hoop wall hangings. The beautiful Inari Fox embroidery hoop wall-hanging is by the fabulous Mooshpie. The rainbow bird garland is from Tiger.
The wall stickers are from a seller on Amazon, and I’ve jazzed them up by giving the overall scene a 3D feel and pinning these kitsch birds from Tiger (I love that store) onto nails in the wall.
The bird below is a card from Busby’s grandparents.
I made the woodland bunting myself, as with the paper bunting. The Keep Calm it’s a Girl print was a gift from a friend.
The collage is also handmade, and you can find my step-by-step tutorial for it here.
The three-picture IKEA frame on this wall is just painted in tester pot paint, and I used craft paper for the pictures.
So there we have it! I just need to finish Busby’s woodland mobile (I keep using the embroidery hoops for other tasks) and add a couple more pictures to her wall, and then the Nursery is finished!
I’d love to know what you think!
