Although we’re not quite finished with this room, I wanted to get it linked up with Shine Your Light’s Before and After party. We spent a lot of time in the nursery this past month, and soon it’s probably where I’ll spend the majority of my time – day and night.
First I got all of the stuff cleaned out of the room that didn’t belong. If you want to take a look at the before and just what a job that was you can view it here. Once I had that finished up, Mark set to work painting. We had all the fun multicolors replaced with a soft baby blue in one weekend. From there it was just a matter of setting up the nursery.
This beautiful rocking chair arrived by mail yesterday (thank you so much Grandma!). Oh and the drapes aren’t actually hung up yet. We’ve got to figure out the best way to get them to hang over the blinds without causing odd bumps.
I bought the cute baskets on top of the dresser from The Foundary. The dresser was given to me from a lady in our neighborhood. We have big plans for this dresser!!
And of course the essential crib. We’ve had this piece since Princess V was born and it has held up fantastically through all 3 girls! The car seat however is brand new.
We still have a few things to add. Setting up the nursery was pretty easy, and didn’t take long at all. So why isn’t the room done yet you ask? Mark and I have been working on other projects for the nursery. The first and foremost was the puzzle. With each new addition to our family, Mark and I sit and put a puzzle together. We then glue it, get it framed and hang it on the wall. I just got the glueing done today, so we should have it hanging by next week.
Mark has also been working on a model airplane that we will suspend from the ceiling. It’s still a work in progress though.
