home tour: baby m's nursery reveal

FINALLY! After months of scheming, planning, and DIYing, baby m's nursery is complete and ready to share! As you may remember, a month or so after we found out we were having a boy we put together this inspiration for baby m's nursery. We wanted a colorful modern vintage feel with an adventure theme for the room which I think we accomplished. We did the whole room on a budget and even with the purchase of new furniture (2 dressers total, crib with mattress, rug and blue rolling cart) and 3 gallons of paint/primer came in under the $700 mark total for everything, including the closet redo with extra dresser for storage!

Read on for more details and links to the projects that we completed for this space!

P.S.- sorry in advance for the cropped photos, still saving up for a 35mm lens for our new full frame DSLR so these were the best we could get with the 50mm!
