nursery tour: details

Little crying's room is pretty much all finished!
I just love how it turned out.
Simple. Clean. Not too girly. Fun details.

And since I couldn't control myself and take less than a million photos, I've decided to give you all the grand tour over the course of two posts. 

First up: 
 Thrifted this end table for $12, got one of the cheapest lamps at Ikea, and my little sister made this perfect elephant sculpture for us in her school art class. 
 Over Christmas break, my mom, sisters, and I all worked on making this quilt/wall hanging. 
And let it be known that I made the amazing sail boat piece.
Pride and joy right there.
 I think it goes without saying that this is the highlight of the room. 
My sister, Hailey, painted Chas' portrait for Christmas and then we commissioned her to do one of me to match. 
The mommy and the daddy.
 I made this mobile years ago in grad school. 
I was always secretly hoping I could use it one day in a baby's room. 
And, of course, our special print for our strong little girl. 

Next up, tomorrow: 
how it looks when it all comes together!
