I am almost finished

Anything that doesn't fit into the other three catagories

Most of you know that I have been working on "Nursery at Grandma's House". When I moved into the house I was so excited because I was going to have a room I could make my Blue and White room.
When we found out our little bundle of joy was going to be a girl, I stressed over the blue room. But with yall's help and a lot of looking I think I worked it out where I have my blue and white room without a nursery looking to boyish. All I am missing is a dust ruffle, two white pillow shams with huge pillows.
I will add more things on the wall as she grows.
I have a total of about $50.00 in the whole room. The crib was a gift from my friend who had twins, the headboard and bed are from my mom's house. She redid her guest room. The comforter/blanket was Travis's Dads, the changing table/dresser was at Josh's house. I took it home, painted it and put new hardware. The rocking chair is a present from my friend, it was her grandmother's. I painted it and recovered the cushion. The lamp, I had previously, but it was black. I painted it, added some ribbon and lace. The table I finally found at a dollar store. I painted it white. The bedding set I found at an American Mills store. $35.00 compare to at least $100.00 anywhere else.

This is the view from sitting in the rocking chair.

That is where I will be spending a lot of my time with my new granddaughter

This is Bristol's bedding set. I know the picture is not very well but it is monkeys embroided into it.

I was excited that I have it almost done, I just had to share with my friends. :wave2:

Beautiful and I love the colors. The blue and white gives it a bit of a Moroccan flair!

I LOVE the color scheme...really, really nice! I love how crisp the white looks next to the blue. :clap:
