It has taken a while, but...the nursery is complete! I think I stuck to my inspiration board and colour theme well.
One thing I guess to remember for any future decorating ideas I might dream up would be... do not under estimate the wall sticker, this was a mammoth task and probably the most time consuming part of the whole room, but I love the result! the stickers arrived in sheets and had to be cut into a million pieces then labelled...every branch, trunk, leaf and bird was meticulously blutacked on and then peeled off and adhered to the wall by my super patient husband (had it been up to me...I am certain it wouldn't look like this!)
As mentioned I did splurge on a couple of things including the pretty sparrow linen & matching tidy box (not pictured) by Dwell studio ( I could only find one store in Perth who stocked this) and a lovely little eames rocker from a replica store over east
The shelf and frames are from trusty ikea, and I managed to buy the cot and change table second hand. They were both in fantastic condition pretty much as new and were a total bargain... thank you super nice western suburbs lady (I wanted to buy this lady's house whilst I was picking up the furniture it was amazing!) Most of the other bits and pieces are from around town and the net, including pikelet workshop, henry hiccups and speckled egg and of course I made the mobile and garland and designed the wall art!
Overall this was a fun project and I am pretty happy with how its all turned out, I hope the new arrival will love it too!
ps. I wanted to take a pic of the whole room, but my crappy photography skills wouldn't let me.. so maybe in the future.
