Mercy's New Room

I just saw Lyndsie's post about nursery idea's and that really interested me! I am still working on Mercy's nursery even though she is 16 months old. I thought I wanted her and Grace (almost 4) to share a room but we saw that it just was not working out very well with their naps. Grace's room also didn't really have enough wall space for a bed and dresser for both of them without being too crowded. This is Mercy's bedding and I just love it! I have always loved toile fabrics and I think this will look really great once we get her walls painted. Daniel and I just moved Mercy into her new room 2 weeks ago and I have already hung pictures and decorated everything except for painting the stripes. We are planning to paint wide pink and white stripes on the walls. Lyndsie actually has a picture of this idea on her blog! I was even more excited about it after actually seeing a picture of what it is going to look like. My favorite thing in Mercy's room is a black and white brush stroke picture of Mercy that we framed to go above her changing table. It looks so sweet! I am tempted to post pictures now but I am going to wait until we get the stripes painted. I always wanted a beautiful set of good quality nursery furniture, but that has never fit into our budget. Mercy's crib isn't beautiful but we were able to buy it used for $50! I paid only $25 for her changing table/dresser at a yard sale which you will see later:-)
This is a picture of Mercy's bed and bedding
when it was still in Grace's room. We
are using the same curtains and
bedding in Mercy's new room.
