First I went to Menard's and searched around for cheap pieces of wood that would work. I found 4 beat up looking boards that were each 10 feet long and only $1.90 a piece! Then I went over to Hobby Lobby and picked up a couple letters for Carter's name at only $.99 a piece! There you have it. This sign cost me less than $15 which makes it that much more cool.
I laid my findings out on the floor and came up with this:
Carter's nursery turned out nothing like I had planned. I think I might try to brighten it up this summer with some white painted furniture or lighter curtains. Maybe I could even find a white crib on Craig's List. This orange stained furniture makes me a bit crazy.
