A gift for a friend

My friend loves cows and will probably have them in the nursery. I found the border online. The wallpaper is scrapbook paper. I made the corner from 3 pieces of laminate samples leftover from when we were shopping for our new floor 8 years ago. The back side of the "room" is nicely finished without me having to do anything to it.
The baby in the bassinet was a hanging Christmas ornament. I cut off the ribbon hanger and made a wire frame for the bassinet. Then I added a longer skirt. I cut cows from the leftover border and glued them to the baby's blanket to make it a printed receiving blanket. The clay cow on the floor came out of a Noah's Ark display thing I used to have hanging in the dining room. The baby book and diapers were made from printies. I made the wipes, powder, lotion and diaper cream from Sculpey.
The pig is supposed to be a piggy bank. The photos are actually of my friend and her family. The plant on top of the shelf represents a welcome baby gift. The wooden blind is a sample.
The diaper pail was made from one of those canisters that come in pill bottles to keep moisture out.

They don't know if they're having a boy or girl so I tried to keep it gender neutral. The wallpaper is blue but has pink polka dots.
