I made the canopy from a pale green organza that I picked up at Joann's and a curtain rod I picked up at Ross. Structurally it is basically a set of curtains with a button and loop fastener in the middle so I can close it around the crib. It reaches to the floor and is essentially our second line of defense against the cats in case the door to the nursery accidentally gets left open. (Yes, everywhere we've read cats aren't usually a problem, but ours have sat on our faces in the middle of the night and forced us to move to breathe, so we just aren't taking a chance of a cat misguidedly trying to snuggle up to Paul.)
We aren't allowed to paint our walls, and one of our friends gave us those lovely tree decals to help break up the walls. They come off really easily and can be used again at our next place; they kind remind me of the stickers we used to put on windows as a kid. They actually look really nice, and not like stickers at all - a wonderful invention for us apartment renters. :)
I also had made a color-coordinated gathered bedskirt a while back which I already wrote about back here.
The other major piece I made for the room is a quilted rug shaped like a monkey, inspired by the nursery rhyme "Five Little Monkeys". (Poor little monkey fell off the bed....) The top is made of a fuzzy fabric similar to a stuffed animal, and the bottom is a heavy brown corduroy, and is quilted together using very loose free motion quilting. This was my first time quilting using my machine, and all I had was my zig-zag foot. (I've since purchased a free motion foot, but haven't gotten to play with it yet - another day.) The fur was so thick that a single strand of thread all but disappeared, so I used a different stitch on my machine where it went over each stitch about 3 times. The tail is a separate piece attached after all of the quilting was done.
Here's a picture of the other corner of the room with the rockers, toy box, stuffed animals, and a painting I did a while back in college a couple years ago. The rocker was given to us by a coworker who no longer needed it for her kids. We've been incredibly blessed with gifts for Paul altogether - we've hardly had to buy a thing for ourselves other than the crib and dresser!
At some point I'll get around to making a pillow with an applique monkey for the rocker and a cover for the top of the dresser, but I'm well pleased with the nursery as is. :)
