Phew. Aside from toys, which I’m not counting as part of the room’s budget since they were mainly birthday and Christmas gifts, that brings our totals to…
Furniture – $658
Art and accessories – $356
Lighting – $122
Soft furnishings – $265
Storage – $171
Paint – $70
…for a grand total of $1642. That seems like a lot to me, but it does include almost every single thing in the room, and it was spread out over more than a year. I think the room will grow with the little man too, so it was worth it.

    Lizzy you have done a fabulous job, I love the cool of the walls and pops of bright color. The pillar in the corner is a great feature and the wall color you picked really shows it off
