Sarah 101 - Episode 2

So...have I managed to get anyone hooked on Sarah 101 yet? I know I am HOOKED. I love Sarah and Tommy, always have, always will.

On this week's episode, they turned a boring guest room into an amazing boys nursery, and as usual they completely outdid themselves. I can't seem to find a before shot of the room online, but it's the after that's the most important anyway!

Things that I have learned from Sarah:
  • Don't be afraid of prints - I always had been in the past, they always seemed cheesy, but now I know how to work them in here and there.

  • Don't buy all 'nursery' furniture - buy items that will grow with baby and can be used in other areas of your home down the road

  • Things don't need to be expensive. Some people spend on a crib what we have spent on the entire nursery, and I like to get more bang for my buck!

  • Nurseries don't need to be cutesy. Think long term, and avoid a cheesy 'theme' that will just get boring.

  • Make the room enjoyable for everyone, baby, Mom and Dad.

Here is a link to where they sources everything:
