Since my child was the first grandson on my side of the family EVERYTHING was given to us at my baby shower, so we didn't pay anything! I THINK all tolled, the nursery decor (not including crib, dresser, changing table and rocker recliner chair) cost around $700. With furnishings it cost around $3000--part of that expense was a convertible crib which is now my older sons full-size bed, and the dresser was a regular (non-youth) size set--to grow with my son.
Since I ended up having a second boy, we left the nursery decor "as is" except we had to buy a convertible crib and dresser (just reused the changing table).
