Welcome to our little man’s nursery. Overall, we are very happy with the way that everything turned out ! This frugal mama is also very happy to say that nearly everything in the room was either secondhand, refinished, or was a DIY project (curtains, changing pad, crib skirt).
We were very bless by my Grandpa, who bought us our stylish crib and mattress, one of the shiny new pieces in the nursery and it definitely steals the show. Thanks for visiting and checking out where Asa will be living.
We will update with more pictures as we learn to “live” in it.

For the items not listed above, they were gifted to us (awesome clothes, toys, diaper bags), so I did not include them into our cost breakdown. Thank you to all of our friends and family who have supported us in starting our little family!
To all you new moms (or existing ones)- decorating and getting ready for baby does not have to break the bank! Think outside the “big box” stores for large items, create and craft whatever you can, and enjoy the experience of making a home for your newest family member!
We can’t wait to finally put ours to use :).
