Drumroll please......

With the exception of some crown molding that needs to be painted and a baby in the crib, the nursery is a finished project!! Check it out below...

A big thanks to my dear friend Julie Grant who painted this canvas for me! Also, thanks to Heather for her idea on the fabric!! I lack a little in my artistic ability so I keep talented friends around to help with my ideas :)
