Our Eclectic Nursery

We are so thankful that we got all of our nursery furniture donated to us from Don's cousin and my sister (who no longer needed them). Of course, I had a moment of wanting to pick out all of my own nursery furniture to create my "dream" nursery, especially after having to wait for so many years! But reality (and practicality) finally set in and I am happy that I was able to figure out how to arrange two very different (but beautiful) nursery sets in a way that I think is cute and cozy. And Don was happy that we probably saved close to a thousand dollars by not buying two cribs, a changing table, and a rocking chair (that made me happy, too- though it was definitely more his idea than mine).


Plus, all that really matters is getting those two sweet boys home and sleeping in their own little cribs!


These cuddle cloths were something I found in the clearance bin at the Land of Nod outlet. The crib bumpers also came from the Land of Nod outlet (so glad I bought two of them almost a year and a half ago when I had no idea if we'd even get twins!). The rest of the crib bedding was purchased on clearance at Target over the past few years. 




The window frames are from my grandma's house, the shutter I picked up on the side of the road and spray-painted, and the rest of the frames were either moved from other locations in the house or purchased at TJ Maxx. The little bamboo animals were also in the clearance bin at the outlet. 


Some gifts from my first shower last week. Thank you, friends!


Looking cheesey and posed... but happy with the final product!



And please excuse the price stickers that are still on some of the frames. Those darn stickers at TJ Maxx are impossible to get off! I just couldn't wait and go through the whole peeling, unsticking, goo-gone-ing, windex-ing process.


The bedding is on, the dresser is filled with little boy clothing, the toys are in the bins, the books are on the shelf- and we're ready for them to come home!
