Gender Neutral Nursery on a Budget

We decided not to find out the gender of our baby. We are both surprise type people and wanted the ultimate surprise. Finding out the gender is so common these days that everyone seems to think we are crazy for not finding out. We haven’t minded at all, in fact it’s been really fun not knowing! We specifically wanted a gender neutral nursery so we would be able to use everything for future children.

We are also on a budget (who isn’t). Our goal was to create a warm and inviting room for our baby (and mainly us with those early am feedings) that wasn’t going to break the bank.
