HI/ LO Galactic Nursery

Styleboard_alien_num_budget_640

Everytime I create an inspiration board for AT, I click submit and hold my breath. Generally, people (those who comment) want to see furniture in the IKEA price range. I can usually foresee the complaints: it’s too loud; it’s too monochromatic; I found that $40 toy you sourced for 63 cents at my neighbour’s garage sale; your language is too flowery; I would never spend that much money on MY CHILD.

It’s hard to not get discouraged but I took the criticism in stride and came up with a more budget-friendly version (at 3 am this morning, and no, I do not sleep. Imagine my delight when Olivia awoke at 4 am). No, it’s not in the IKEA price range but it does get you into a designer nursery for $3000 (as opposed to $6000 for the original).

    Thank you for the sheet links- I hadn&#39;t seen the large size sheets from Dwell. Both look good, although I&#39;m leaning toward the Dwell sheets because they work so well with the hand drawn pillow. The pillow would be an easy project for my son and I to DIY and it would be cute to have his version of our family portrait. <br /><br />The color blocked curtains, pottery barn sheets and alien
