Isn't it lovely?
The crib in this picture is a Sparrow Crib and they are the rage right now. But they are also over $700 a pop which is a total bummer because our client can only spend $1000 total on this nursery.
So we found a gray look-alike at Ikea for $120! How great is that?! Then it hit me. Do people buy cribs from Ikea? Is their signature softwood and buyer-assembled furniture a hazard? Or is it not much different from the old wooden bassnettes of yesteryear? What say you? She's a new momma and I'm not a momma, so we need some advice!
Our client was able to find the extra space in their small home by converting their old office into the nursery. As such, they have fantastic french doors already in place and that was the key factor in gelling with the Estee Stanley nursery as their inspiration. Instead of trying to add wood panels and/or beams to the ceiling (btw she's 7 months pregnant and running out of time), we suggested painting the ceiling dark to mimic the look, along with the french doors. We are going to overdye one of her old Persian rugs (like we did here) to cut down on costs, but we have a runner-up waiting in the wings in case that goes poorly. There isn't much room for a hefty ottoman so we opted for a chic garden stool. We stuck to the budget as best we could. Here's the run down.
Ikea Pillows (disco.)
$1060 was the grand total for this room. Let's just pray this rug turns out! We can't wait to help her ready for this baby.
