In 2008, when we found out we were expecting, my mind began racing about how I would decorate the nursery. However, this was going to have to be done on a VERY tight budget. When we had found out we were expecting, my husband had just been laid off from his job after 15 yrs of service. Great timing eh? Oh well, everything happens for a reason! And this table cloth had been waiting for this special moment! It turns out we were having a girl and this would become the curtain in her nursery! I couldn't think of a better way to honor my grandma and her hard work!
The detail on this amazes me! I only wish I had half her patience!
I love the way the sun filters through in the morning! But for nap time, we have a room darkening roll shade that we can pull down. Great for bedtime in the summer too!
This was a perfect fit for our daughters room! The entire room is re-purposed things, furniture we had and a borrowed bed that was my niece's. We were fortunate! We purchased very little for this room and I think it turned out great! Not only is her room functional, but it has grown with her wonderfully! She is now two and a half and it still works great for her and for a few years to come! Not mention, pretty much everything in the room has some sort of history and story. Which I love!

We love this room and I love the history behind it! It's a great tribute to many members of our family and a great way to reuse the beautiful items from the past that are too pretty to use and too pretty to put away!
Not to mention how budget friendly it was!Sharing at:
