Latest Projects Part 2: Baby's Room/Guest Room

Since moving the girls into the other bedroom and converting it into a bedroom/playroom, I've been left to re-decorate what has now become the guestroom/soon-to-be-baby's room.
The fabric I loved... which became my inspiration:

Guest bed with freshly covered pillows (still looking for a cute throw in chocolate brown):

Homemade curtains:

Bookcase Riley was able to get for free from work. On top is a $3 mirror I found at a yard sale a few weeks ago (still needs to be hung & bookshelf needs organizing):

An adorable centerpiece Kristen made for a baby shower for Jodi. No one at the shower wanted to keep it, so a month later it's still hanging in my dining room. I think I'm going to hang it above the crib and use it as a mobile because I'm not able to part with it!

Overall view of the room. I was able to re-use the same crib skirt and bumper that I had for the girls (a pottery barn set that I snagged at a yard sale 5 years ago) and sewed strips of the fabric I love. Recovered the rocking chair with an adorable chocolate brown coordinating fabric. And, once again, I have the dilemma of bare walls:
