the new nursery

this room was a lot of fun to decorate.
not knowing the baby's gender beforehand certainly made it tricky, but it made me think and use color differently than i ever have and i'm so happy with the way it turned out.

we had like no budget for this room.
the most expensive pieces are the knitted pouf ottoman and the canvas + paint for the painting i made.
we already had

this room was first a guest room, then my craft/sewing room.
i painted this room when we bought the house {five years ago!} so i lucked out not having to repaint.

here are the many phases of this room...

as you can see it's a tiny room.
like 85 sq ft.
tiny, tiny, tiny.
but perfect for our little ezra.
here it is!

i  l o v e  this room.
it's my favorite room in the house.
hopefully ezra will like it to!
