I'm hoping this is crafty enough, this is my first post on here Smiley It isn't overly crafty, compared to so many of the amazing posts here but I was pretty happy with the way it came out so, I thought I'd take a stab at posting!  I bought my daughters crib set at a consignment sale for like $20 bucks. I refused to pay an insane amount for all the extras, so I came up with a couple solutions that worked out pretty well IMO.  I wanted a valance and was only using one of the bumpers for the crib, so I ripped up the other 3 bumpers and sewed a valance together. I also needed something for the walls so I bought 3 prints off Ebay, painted the plain white mats and plain white frames (got at walmart for a total of like $12 bucks). I also painted the wood letters for her name above the window.  Anyway, now I'm working on her big girl room!

BethieB. Thanks! I wanted something soft and pretty, but not typical pink (Purple is my fave too). The frogs were just too cute to pass up!

Miss Barbara, Thank you! I just couldn't see spending TONS (It's crazy!) I think I did the whole room for under $75 bucks (including the border, paint, curtains, etc.). I'm bummed that we're done with it and starting on a big girl room already! (although I did find an amazing bed for $10 bucks! at a thrift store, just needed a good painting, I found one almost identical in a catalog for almost $500!!! Suhweeet!)
