I recently took some pictures of my son’s nursery because we decided to move his room to the back of the house and I wanted to remember what it looked like. Over the past year, we moved things in and out of his nursery and rearranged it a few times according to his needs.
But much of the decor has stayed the same, and I only spent $40 to decorate. Much of the furniture and decor we already had.
The only costs were:
Wall paint – $15
Mesh crib liner – $20
Basket for changing table – $5
We used a dresser we already had for the changing table and my son’s dresser. The crib was given to us by a family that no longer needed it. My MIL made the curtains and bought the fabric for us. We used a rocker/recliner that we already had instead of buying a glider.
I also took a video of the room where I describe in more detail some of the wall decor. When I took the video we had rearranged the chair and dresser and taken out his toy shelf.
