Baby Girl Nursery On A Budget
Before we found out we were having a baby girl we sort of hoped for another boy. Not only did two kids of the same gender sound like a lot of fun for them but we could reuse all of the clothing and more importantly, the boys could share a room.
In our townhouse we had an additional room, however it was far from our room and not conveniently placed for a baby room. Because our master bedroom had a small nook we used as storage and a partial sewing/craft area. We decided to convert that area into a space for our little girl but wanted to keep the budget low so if and when we moved we could give her the room we wanted to give her then.
It made logical sense for us to use the same crib and build the area for her around that. We found a brown Pottery Barn crib, practically new, for only $200. It was an amazing score at a consignment store so we had to use it again. Trying to keep the area feeling light and airy, we decided to work with floral bedding for inside the crib. We found her crib bedding at Target (find it here) and we thought it would be great with the space.
Without wanting to completely over do it with florals we added only a few more pieces. We bought a beautiful garland on Etsy (find it here) and placed a vintage floral light on one of the shelves.
The shelves we bought were from Ikea. They quite frankly were the cheapest option we could find. They were going to be used primarily for decorative purpose so we didn’t want to spend a lot of money. After stylishly placing a few items on the shelves we added a mirror to balance the wall. The mirror was purchased on Amazon(here).
The dresser we used for her changing pad and clothing storage was actually an old architect file cabinet. When we purchased our townhouse, the sellers had asked us if we wanted a few furniture items they were unable to find a place for and we accepted believing they might be useful in the future. Additionally, we bought a wardrobe at Ikea(here) to hang clothing and to use as other storage because there was not a closet in the area to use. The price wasn’t beatable and we are now using it for craft storage.

We already owned the cart we used to store diapers, wipes and blankets as well. We purchased it at Target(here) a few years earlier and used it for craft supplies.
With some bargain hunting and a vision , in a small space or a tight budget an adorable space can be created for your son or daughter.
