A baby's room on a budget... THE CRIB, yo!

As 'Sweet Child of Mine' just begins to play on the radio I decided that maybe I should share with you some progress on the baby's room!!!

I've gotten rid of lots of clutter and set up 2 pretty crucial pieces of furniture:

The Crib and Changing Table Set
I picked up from Big Lots
for $179.

Here's a very plain lamp shade I picked
up at Ikea. I plan on embellishing it to add
the finishing touches to the room.

I can't help but daydream about what to put up on the walls... I really don't like putting my own artwork up simply because I will stare and critique it constantly... Plus, I enjoy supporting fellow artist and crafters. Over the years I've acquired a few pieces of work that I am in the process of frame matching to display in our little girl's room:

Parasol print
by Art and Ghosts

She Moves among the Sparrows print
by The Black Apple
psssst. on sale right now too!!!

Shy Girl and Shy Boy print
by Rosie Music (from Mexico City)

Stay tuned to see these prints framed! Here's a sneak peek of what I'm also working on for the room:
