We bought plain dark brown curtains that block out the light when closed and I added patchwork materials on the bottom that match with the baby's comforter.
|I need a few more small stuffed animals to add to the top shelf (I've already got the books)|
So far we've been incredibly blessed and have managed to acquire most nursery items second hand from family and friends. Given how quickly baby stuff adds up, this is a huge bonus, especially for an eco mama like me who really wants to minimize our carbon footprint whenever possible.
|I covered the lampshade with matching fabric. It's not perfect but it'll do.|
We did splurge on some cheap Ikea frames, photos, and shelves (don't get me started on how much, particularly as a pregnant lady, I loath shopping in Ikea). We're going to use the shelves to put up some books and stuffed animals and we have 5 mini frames with colourful animal prints to go on the other walls. The photos are actually a great score because they help bring in some of our mismatched elements (ie, non owl elements) into the room (monkeys and sheep).
I'd like to find a nice rug to add to the center of the room, but so far we haven't found anything that really fits and doesn't cost a fortune. But we'll keep looking.
