I live in an apartment so I cannot paint the walls Sad  I find that art is very expensive so I tried my hand at painting.  (the two above the cradle) And I painted the 6" nursery letters (which are also very expensive in stores and online).  Those took a long time!  I made 8-bit mosaics out of construction paper and framed them as art.  On top of the cubby holes are 2 frames I painted to match the letters, and a ducky that I tried to make look like the Batman duck.  All of the furniture except the cubby holes are from craigslist.  I have been looking on here for inspiration, so maybe this will help someone else with ideas.  Any suggestions for things to add are appreciated.  Thanks for looking.

its a bit hard to see, but it looks like you did an awesome job! I love the colors you chose for the letters of your sons name. I also live in an apartment and while I CAN paint, its a lot of work to do that and then move out and repaint so I'm doing a similar thing with the hanging letters in my kitchen.

You've done a wonderful job making the baby's room so inviting and comforting.  Incredible the wonderful things you found on Craigslist.  That quilt hung over the big baby bed is gorgeous.  Lovely!!!  Lucky boy.
