From nurspiration here and revisited here to reality, I wanted to finally share the finished product of our crab-themed gender neutral combination nursery and guestroom (say that three times fast) that our little one now calls home.
With the limited space we were working with, we combined the changing table with the dresser and added a DIY paper lantern mobile to give the baby something to look at while he or she was getting changed.

With little room for a crib and double bed, we got creative and turned the existing closet into a nook for the crib with bins on the shelf for extra storage. I then prettied it up (sorry, son) with a DIY fabric banner.
The double bed was left in the room for when we had guests, with some new linens to match the updated color scheme.
Of course a little patriotism was inserted with a DIY Flag collage
And I included some shout outs to NC so any child of mine would know a little something about the place Mommy calls home.

Pretty close to the original inspiration right?
