I absolutely loved the furniture in the Nautical Nursery I mentioned previously, but it was pretty clear with a budget of $1,500 for Hudson's room I wouldn't be able to afford the fancier $400 and up cribs I was seeing at Pottery Barn Kids. My husband and I had a trip planned to Atlanta to see his brother and fiance, so while there, we decided to check out Ikea.
I loved their kids selection - if you haven't been into a store they have the whole room already designed and set up for great inspiration. However I was a little disappointed in their selection for babies. Despite the limitations, I was able to leave with a few great pieces to start the nursery:
|SUNDVIK Crib $119|
|Tarva 5 Drawer Chest $99 and TARVA 3 drawer chest $79.99, planned as changing table|
|AGEN Children's Armchair $19.99 each|
|HENSVIK Cabinet with Shelves $69|
I was also lucky enough to have a fabulous mother in law who purchased our final piece: the Kacy Chair from Babies R Us. It comes in a cute gender neutral grey fabric that I have seen a lot of people use, but I wanted nautical so I had it ordered in custom navy fabric with white piping (photos to come).
So with my nursery almost fully furnished I'd only spent $407, less than a third of my budget!
