Name: newborn (5 months)
Location: Cullman, Alabama

From the moment that we found out we were expecting we called our baby "Baby Bunny"! So if this room had a theme (ugh, themes) it would be Bunnies. The color scheme came from the curtain fabric that my mother and I "sewed" ourselves and grew from there. I knew I wanted a dark nursery as I prefer dark colors on walls. Even though this nursery doesn't scream baby I knew this room could grow with her for years to come.

My husband is a wonderful craftsman and installed the board and batten in this nursery as well as deconstructed the closet and added in new shelving to convert it to a nook for the changing table. This room has a very small footprint so the closet-turned-changing table was a must.

We have popcorn ceilings and carpet and didn't have room in the budget to redo those but they are projects we hope to tackle down the line. The Jenny Lind crib is mine from 27 years ago that my parents kept in wonderful condition. The changing table and armoire are also mine from my childhood (What 10 year old asks for bedroom furniture for Christmas??). My in-laws gifted us the glider so aside from that we spent well under $1K for redoing this nursery.
