Preparing for Babies

Before I get the opportunity to play with my babies in ways that encourage their gross and fine motor skills, language development, and sensory development, we need to prepare for their arrival.

The Completed Nursery – Lion King Themed

We completed our nursery with a few tricks here and there to add storage as well as some very cost effective decorating options. I will never forget the week that Lauren Downey, my best friend from childhood, flew across the nation to help me get everything ready to be a mom. Her help decorating the nursery was seriously such a blessing. It is now my favorite room in the house. My mom came out as well to help with the finishing touches, and my husband’s parents helped us with getting the cribs purchased and built. I’m so Thankful for All their Help!

This project cost came to $18 total and gave us a great way to decorate the nursery AND function storage space. It was fun and super easy. The peg board was purchased from home depot for $7 and they cut it for us. I also purchased green spray paint and a clear spray paint sealant for just over $2 each. Last thing I grabbed was a three pack of wire pegboard baskets for $9.

We painted, mounted, and then decorated the board.

Easy, fun, and most important to my husband, cost effective!
