Nesting in the Nursery

I have had so much fun putting this room together. I am not quite done. I have 4 or so finishing touches left and then I will feel it is complete. I tried to find things I liked in magazines and adds and then attempted to recreate a version of them. This is what we have so far...

I am planning to put a cornice box over the top of the curtains here.

Some of my inspiration and good deals...
The Lamp I had and wanted to re-purpose...
The Lamp I like from Pottery Barn Kids ~ $148

My less frilly version embellished with cloth rosettes made from scrap fabric ~ $0

The Tree with shelves that I found here. The tree is $88 + $12 shipping.
This is my version painted with free paint! I will be cutting white birds out on the cricut on Friday. 

I also plan to use the cricut to write the baby's name like this, over the changing table.
I found these inexpensive shelves at Goodwill for $5 total and painted them to match.
I found this bird picture online at this address. It is $120 for this small canvas.
I used an old frame and two pieces of leftover scrapbook paper to create this. $0 
The little bird to the left is something I found at the Dollar Store and spray painted white.
Here are a few of the accessories I found at the Dollar Store.
I learned how to make this tissue paper pom-pom here, at Martha $1

So far I have spent...
Paint $12
Tissue $1
Accessories $3
Lamp $9
 ( I stole the one from the living room, so I needed to replace it.)

I still need to get...
 A vase with hydrangeas for the space next to the clock.
Birds and name on the wall (free)
A pillow for the chair. (I already have fabric, just need time.)
