Baby Boy Nursery

I have finally taken some photographs of the baby's fancy new nursery. Well actually not fancy. Claire reaped the benefit of first baby unlimited budget nursery and well this baby gets the design on a major budget nursery. I do think it turned out great though. Eventually I would love to add some sort of hanging light fixture. But I am happy with how it turned out. I got most items with my American Express points or with a fantastic coupon. You cannot forget Etsy either, they helped with the creative wall decor. Enjoy!

Here is his room from the entrance. I purchased the crib and dresser from Buy Buy Baby with a 20% off one time coupon. The total for both was around $800. I cannot find the brand online, but it was in their stores.

The nautical signs spell out Thomas in flag code. I found these gems on Etsy at this store: Just Beachy Shop

The lazy boy recliner I got on Clearance for $199 at Babies r Us. It wasn't exactly what I wanted but it was comfortable and too good of a deal to pass up.

I got these rugby curtains from Pottery Barn Kids along with the Star Hardware. You can find here: Rugby Blackout Panels and Star Hardware I purchased both with American Express points.

The awesome window panel with a burlap anchor I found on Etsy at this shop: Big Yellow Vintage

Bedding I found at Land of Nod, its the only items I paid full price for: Sail on Crib Bedding

The lamp I got on sale at Pottery Barn Kids, the picture frame I got from TJ Maxx, the painting has been in our family for a long time, the table I got at Pier One years ago, and Lily I found from a pug breeder :)

And finally the wall art is from another fine shop on Etsy: Zeppi Prints. I bought the frames at Aaron Brothers in the store. The brown storage bucket I found at Target.

And there you have it. The total cost of the room with paint was around $2500. Not bad! Tom will never know how cheaply I did this.
