The nursery is finally finished!!! After months of working on it and collecting inspiration (from Pinterest of course!) it’s open and ready for baby business. After finishing the board and batten project, I really didn’t think I could love this little room any more, but oh was I wrong. It’s officially my favorite room in the house and for the past couple weeks that comfy lookin’ glider has been home to all my morning coffee drinking and even a little blogging. However, I’m of course most excited for it’s main purpose – rockin’ that sweet little baby boy we’ve got cookin’
So when furniture shopping online I had a total “AH HA” moment that I just have to share with all you future mamas. So I started my hunt at simplybabyfurniture.com because I really liked their brands and the quality of the furniture – the free shipping and returns also had me hooked. That was until I started using Google Shopping and found the exact same furniture for about a $100 cheaper at stores like Walmart. And when I say “exact same furniture” I truly mean it. You just have to practice your “google-fu” a little and get creative with your search terms. I learned that some Brands even market the furniture slightly different on certain sites, using parent company names instead of the actual product name. Clever, huh? I’m all about quality furniture but if you can save a Benjamin here and there… why not girl!
- Oars: I’m uber excited about my oars! Are you guessing Pottery Barn Kids? Well, I actually snagged these puppies for less than $10 bucks each from Walmart and yes from the boating/sporting dept. It’s simply amazing what a little white Krylon primer and high gloss spay paint can do!
Convertible Crib: Status Milcroft (I found for a little cheaper on Amazon.com, but it’s also sold at simplybabyfurniture.com)
Bedding: “Row Your Boat” from Pottery Barn Kids
Glider: I was really proud of this find! I fell in love with this glider at Toys R Us but found it significantly cheaper on walmart.com. Thank you Google Shopping. I heart you big time.
Table: A Delaware antique store find!
Letters: Hobby Lobby
Dresser/Changer: Status Milcroft (I found for a little cheaper on Amazon.com, but it’s also sold at simplybabyfurniture.com
Bookshelf: Canwood from walmart.com (I literally almost paid double for the exact same bookcase somewhere else! Crazytown!)
Artwork: Etsy, of course!
I also snagged some snazzy closet organizers from walmart.com as well!
So… whatcha think? Is Dylan going to totally dig it or what? Yeah… he’s probably just going to sleep in it but at least it will be super soothing and peaceful. If that’s truly the case… mission accomplished.
