The bumpers that I found at Target ($45) were my starting point because unless you are making your own (which I was hoping to avoid) this is the hardest thing to find, or find affordably I should say=) So, now that I have bumpers and a paint color, I can get creative! ( I should give the disclaimor that the color in this pic is definitely off, they are a brighter pink and I promise they go with the wall color. Both are almost a watermelon pink if I had to name them.)
After a little net surfing, I came across a gold mine of a fabric site http://www.heatherbaileystore.com/
Cheerful, unique and a hint of vintage is how I'd describe the feel of her fabrics.
I am thinking this one will be the crib skirt. I ordered 1/2 yard to see the colors before I commit.
If I like it enough, I may even use it for the windows or a pillow or something...
You can find it by going to her site and clicking on the Nicey Jane Fabrics.
Here's another gem of a fabric from her site, apparently it's almost all gone, so I may just have to snag some of it and find a way to work it in. Love the colors and pattern. Perfect for a nursery=)
And last but not least, my most recent Craigslist purchase! Scored this fab mirror for $20. I saw it, I drooled, and immediately emailed the guy with the subject line "want the mirror!" When I went to pick it up, what I thought was going to be a 24"-36" tall mirror is more like 48"-60" tall. Nevertheless, I was excited that it was so big feeling I had "gotten my money's worth." Just needs a good coat of paint and voila! It may be too big for the nursery, but I'm sure I can use it somewhere else.
