look for less, nursery

Uptown Girl or Boy!

  1. Your amazing…I am so looking forward to seeing this nursery!

    You should look at the Walmart Baby Mod crib. It looks a little closer to the $1,500 one and you could paint the drawer on the bottom. We have this crib, and it has excellent ratings from buyers and looks great!

      Hi Andi,

      I did look at that one but the sides are exposed and in my inspiration they are solid. Hmm I guess I could have wood cut to size and cover the bars on the outside to get the same look. We shall see. Thanks for the heads up.

      🙂 C

    Congrats on the baby! I’m so happy for you! I have a little boy and we got his crib on clearance at Target for $69. It looks very similar to the one in the picture…a boxy crib that you could totally DIY to make it look like that. It’s made by Dwell Studio! Maybe cheaper than what you would really want, but it’s almost identical in form.

    saw this acrylic crib and thought you might like it
    Congrats on your news! We were married for 10 years before we finally became pregnant (tried for 7 years) and he was born a month before our 11 year anniversary. He’s turning 4 next month! Just as you, we stopped thinking about it and “trying” and it just happened! Best of luck!

    Nursery furniture is so expensive – I’m surprised more companies don’t try to knock off the designer styles (would love to see a cheaper version of the Nurseryworks acrylic crib!). Great DIY ideas, please keep them coming!

    My friend just introduced me to this company Young America: http://www.youngamerica.com/products/343681. They do a wide variety of styles in every color conceivable – kind of a fun idea to make the crib the focal point of the room. I’m leaning toward the Giggle Harper crib because I saw it in a display early on and it got stuck in my head: http://www.giggle.com/eng/product/harper_crib/suncr

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
