Adding baby Kei to our home has been amazing and tricky, however I think we got it!  I have been wanting to redo our room for a long time but I needed to gather the pieces, I don’t like to just go buy and frankly I cant afford to so everything in this room is either handmade, re upholstered, or refurbished. And all from trash cans (yes I like trash LOL) thrift stores, flea markets and craigslist. Ok so I did splurge on the Organic Comforter from Amy Cole but other than that here is the breakdown.

Gray Wall Paint- 5.00  if you go on Tuesdays to Lowes  and most days at Home Depot they set out oops paint, Im a frequent stoker of oops paint.

Pink HD oxford ( BLAH) paint 15.00. I did not know this price when I checked out and I almost flipped a lid but I just bought it

Amy Cole Organic Cotton bedding 200.00

Sleigh bed- craigslist 30.00. It was lime green when I biught it hints the 30.00 price tag but I sanded for days on end and painted the other days on end to get it the teal color.

Teal Paint for bed and Kei’s Name Frame 25.00 Behr primer and paint.

Night stands 30.00 thrift store repainted with gray wall paint

lamps: 30.00 Target

Vintage dressers: 200.00 craigslist
