Molly (1 month)
Location: Toronto, Ontario
This is Molly's room! We planned on having a simple but colourful room. We also didn't want to spend a lot of money on the room, seeing as we had planned on buying her really nice "big girl" furniture when she gets a bit older.
This was definitely a room on a budget! Her dresser, footstool and bookcase are all from IKEA, the chair came second-hand from a friend, and the crib we got from a closeout sale. The grey paint was left over from our living/dining room, and we got tester pots of the stripe colours to save money. Lastly, the mobile was made by me. I couldn't find anything that I liked, so I made one! I put together hot air balloons made out of heavy stock paper and a balsa wood picture frame painted sky blue with clouds.
We really love how everything turned out, and so does Molly!
Thanks, Aly and Sean!.
