Fabric Choice?

I went to JoAnn's yesterday and looked in the home decor fabric section. Here are some samples I picked up. I'm trying to decided what to make the curtains and crib skirt out of. Any suggestions?

Hopefully I can make it to Hancock's and Hobby Lobby to see thier choices. I might not even use decorator fabric...maybe I'll use something lighter? Let me know what you think?

Thrifting Pays Off....

...well, if you can call Craigslist thrifting. I woke up this morning and found that someone had literally just posted this rug a few minutes earlier. I wasn't going to take any chances, so I picked up the phone and made the call. I made an appointment to go and see it at 10 a.m. Well, it looked good enough for me. I brought it home for only $15! Here it is:

Nursery Ready To Decorate!

Here is the finished chandelier. I painted a vintage brass & white chandelier (or rather had my Dad & Taylor paint it!). I picked it out because of the flower details under each light. I made the pink scroll cord cover and hung crystals on it.

Here are the two pictures I got from Brittany and Jen S., respectively, at my baby shower. I am going to use them as inspiration to pick fabric etc... Cute huh!

Here is a picture of the armoire we got off of craigslist. I bought some cute knobs to replace the boring white ones. I just need to put them on. We needed this because there is no closet in this room...I mean NO closet!

Here's the crib we got because our other one was recalled. Thank goodness we didn't have to buy a new one. It's just like my other one except white. I like the vintage look. Now I just need to buy a mattress...oh yeah, and make the crib skirt.

I was thinking about putting this side table in there, if it fits. I may or may not change the crown knobs. What do you think?
