the nursery.

Inspired by Bennett's favorite toy - his Zebra.





The week we found out we were pregnant, I admittedly began looking for baby bedding. There were endless options for girls, but only ONE that I liked for a boy. "Transport" by Dwell Studio. BUT, This one was a bit too pricey for the likes of us students, so I had to stretch my imagination and settle (so I thought).
The crib was also an issue - I wanted the best of the best for my wee one, but, we like food - so, I went searching on KSL. I hit the jack pot one Saturday morning when I found a crib, changing table and a new mattress for a whopping $50. Truly. Yes, all three items - for $50! Unreal. At the time I didn't love the color or style, but now, I love it.
I couldn't find another crib set that I liked enough to buy and was apprehensive to sew one myself until my friend Meriel inspired me to try...
So, thinking of Bennett's love - the zebra - I went wild and found the fabric. My wonderful mother came and helped me sew (we had a blast)...And...
Ta-da!!
The mobile was quick, easy and inexpensive too - Just some paper and a photo tree from amazon.
All in all, Bennett loves to stare at it - Brandon loves the price tag (the entire room, furniture and all, less than $300) - and I love that they love it. :)
