Once we started thinking about the nursery I knew right away I wanted it to be gender neutral. That way we could use most of it for our other kids as well. Rather than having to redo it all. Some people think I am strange. I call that thinking ahead! It will save us some money in the long run. And our kids really probably won’t care!
I ended up finding three nursery sets that I felt were gender neutral that I could live with for years to come (literally). I showed them to Ryan and we came to choose this one. I wanted to share our nursery with you!
I will share some pictures around the room and tell you where items came from.

Just a little different view of these two areas.
Mom got me the ring at a garage sale. The other items I already had in my craft closet. Painted the ring. Cut out green circles, hot glued pieces to string. Then, it was done!
I had a great time putting together the nursery! Asking for pieces as gifts and thrift shopping we really did not end up spending much at all on the nursery! And even better since we did a neutral theme we can use it for our other kiddos too!
What is your favorite nursery theme?
Until Next Time- Truly Love,
