Well, the nursery is on its way! We laughed the other day about how we were so not procrastinating with this project. I always think of nursery completion pictures happening when the lovely preggo lady has quite the belly to show off. I have a bump....barely. When I was trying on a dress the other day, the salesperson did not even believe that I was 4 months pregnant. Oh well...it'll get there I'm sure.
So anyway, JW did a lot painting on Sunday and Monday to change our guest room from this...
To this beautiful shade of blue.
We also got the crib and the dresser set up. Although we are nowhere close to being done, we do have quite a few of the elements we love. The Ikea floor lamp was actually something we bought for our wedding reception to add some lighting to the venue, but we love that it feels whimsical and not too bright in this space. We also picked up two lime green buckets at Pottery Barn Outlet for half the price of what you can buy them for in the catalog!
Although the rocker won't stay there permanently, we thought it was a cute addition to the room and I just sewed up that pillow this morning with red tag home decor fabric samples from JoAnn Fabrics. Add to that my teacher discount and I got the patterned side and a solid blue sample for $3.16.
Like I said, we're certainly not done yet, but we're off to a good start. We still have visions of adding shelves, finding a great chair, and putting up some prints I've been crafting in publisher. In addition, while I was watching my nephews yesterday they both checked out the 'baby' room. Therefore, it's been kid-approved! Braden, the 2 year old was searching for the baby. Cutest thing ever. He kind of gets the concept that the baby is in Aunt Erin's belly, but when you ask him where the baby is he points to his belly, ha!
So, what do you think? We'd love to hear ideas or thoughts that you might have!
