Keating's Nursery Reveal!!!!!

Its finally DONE! Hopefully just in the nick of time!
If you missed my first reveal about the bedding and curtains check it out here!

A lamplight view of the changing table with Keating's stuffed "Jasper" dog... yes the dog is wearing a tiny UGA hat!

The banner was made by my friend Michelle for Keating's baby shower. It goes perfectly in the room!

I made this print in photoshop and stuck it in a $3 clearance frame from Target! Score! The stars are from Hobby Lobby

A view of the changing table. The basket I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby and it was natural colored. I gave it a bit of black spray paint. I now realize that the basket is a little lopsided... probably why it was on clearance! haha!

The lamp is from a local florist and was a gift from my aunt.

I needed a laundry hamper and had this old one from college. I made a new liner for it with the cowboy material. I think it turned out pretty decent! Cant beat getting something for free!

A closeup of the liner

This view of the room is still a little "unfinished" Where the barn star is I play to put pictures of him once he gets here! The barn star used to be in our guest room and was green. The green didnt match well so I painted it with a little cream latex paint and accented it with Ralph Lauren glaze. Once again, cant beat using something I already had!

Onto the chair...

This chair was a total steal!!! I was randomly browsing craigslist one Saturday morning and found the listing for this glider. $75 dollars! Luckily I was the first person to contact the seller and she said it was mine! It was listed as "light green" but it kind of changes colors in different lights. Its mostly a neutral tan color. The seller had people emailing her offering her more $$ for it, but thankfully she was honest and saved it for me since I was first!

Next to the chair is my little ottoman. I needed something to sit things on or to prop my feet up on, and couldnt find anything that fit. I ended up buying a $19 microsuede square "ottoman" from Target. It was black, which wasnt bad, but Im not a huge fan of microsuede.

I decided to sew a cover for it out of the remainder of the polka dot fabric I had from the bedding. The ivory in the fabric was way too bright so I tea dyed it. Making the actual cover was really easy. Just a bunch of squares sewed together!

Lola wanted to model it!

Above the chair is this precious print from my friend Kristi. It is one of my most favorite things in the whole nursery! Even though she is a GA Tech fan, she still found it in her to buy this awesome UGA print! I LOVE IT!!!!!!! I think I still need to hang it up instead of sitting it on the ledge.

A little closet view. I think its funny how the clothes grow longer towards the right!

The book shelf is from the scratch and dent section in Ikea. $25 bucks! There is a little scratch on the side, and you cant see it when its in the closet!

Hanging on the closet door is this awesome diaper wreath made by my friend Noelle! If you cant tell, it has tiny little cowboy boots on it!

Just a random little iron sign I found at Hobby Lobby. Hobby Lobby and I are pretty tight!

One last look at the whole room!
