There is very little in the nursery that we didn't DIY, fix up, or recycle from another room (other than the crib). I love that we were able to make it exactly how we wanted it and it sure has kept me busy rather than dwelling on the fact that my jeans probably won't fit again for a loonnng time.
This summer Matt and I were garage sale-ing one morning and I came across this trunk. It was full of another person's junk and was being used as a box for "$1 items". It was nasty and cobwebby and apparently at one point used to store Christmas decor. I asked if I could take it for $5. And she gave it to me. Yay! I love good finds.
