I posted a sneak peek a few weeks ago with some of the finish details, you can check it out here.
I attempted to stick on a budget with the project and receiving the crib as a gift certainly helped. We also refinished a dresser from my childhood (repainted and new hardware), bought our glider on Craigslist, used paint we had from the previous house, re-purposed curtains from the living room, bought the rug at a furniture outlet and the bookshelf was a floor model so we got 20% off. Still, preparing for baby is not cheap :). We were so blessed to have a few baby showers to get us set up.
Henry is sleeping in a Pack N Play bassinet in our room right for the foreseeable future but we've got his crib ready to go:

Between the crib and the closet, we have the glider and bookshelf-which doubles as a stand for the lamp and gives me a place to put things during nursing sessions.
Close up! I love the embroidered lampshade but it think this lamp may be a bit too bright for night time feedings. I'm considering getting a smaller lamp or nightlight as an alternative.
That's it so far! Now that Henry is here, I would like to make some artwork for above his crib. Something a bit more "boy" :).
