Well I think I have reached the end of the nursery decorating. The room we had to work with is very small coming in at 8×9, perfect size for a nursery or office. I was a bit nervous it wasn’t all going to fit at 1st, but we got it all it.
Take a gander
I think I’m falling in love with this room It’s not like any room I’ve ever put together. And can I say I’m even shocked on how girly it’s looking and I don’t hate it!! This weekend I wanted to start hanging a few items I’ve had tucked away. A mirror I bought MONTHS ago, curtains, and wall shelves. We only got the curtains up and mirror, which is fine by me (trying to take my time).
Funny story about the mirror, I saw something like it on one of my favorite blogs younghouselove awhile back. After my 1st doctors appointment (8weeks along) I hit up the homegoods right down the road. While wondering around I saw a mirror very similar to the one Sherry and John used in their nursery. I thought “well if we have a girl this would be super cute over the crib”. Glad that all worked out 😉
I also bought crib bedding, I’ll be honest I’m sure I spent to much for it but I LOVE IT!! It came in a cute bedding bag which got me thinking. I could use it and make a pillow for the rocking chair. And wah-la PILLOW.
The curtains were from Ikea, just like all the curtains in our house. So easy to put up and hem. My kinda project!
The tree is up, decor out and presents wrapped. BRING it xmas!
Yes I know I’m jumping the gun here, but it’s how I do! We recently found out we are having a baby girl. Now I’m not a girly girl, but I thought she should have a semi girly room. I had originally wanted to do light grey, but seemed drab for a bebe-bebe girl. I settled on a grey/purple, called charcoal heather by Olympic. Olympic paint is a no VOC paint which is best for me and babe right now. Not to mention its only 23 bucks a gallon ( a bargain in NO VOC paint world).
Now lets take a look back at was once my office…
All cleared out
and now how it ended up
more to come in the next few months 😉
We have this odd sized closet in the hallway. It’s to far off the floor to be a utility closet and there are no shelves so not a linen closet.
When we moved in we removed the door and never did anything to the nook that was left. It became a catch all of change and my jewelry. For a long time I thought it would be nice to build shelves to finish off the hallway look. Here is my work in progress…
I still have to add trim to hide the furring strips and quarter round on the bottom shelf and it will be done! I know you can’t wait to see the whole thing.
From time to time I get bored… this is the time the hubs might want to run away and hide. I was looking at our guest room and kinda sick of it. The blue was never the right blue. Still love the chocolate brown, but needed a change. I had originally bought new grey quilt for our master with a West Elm gift card (Thanks Matt & Carol). I love it, but got to thinking “this might be the right change that the guest room needs”. I also had the white curtains laying around.
Take a look at the before:
Now the After:
(the armoire is going to go, it’s on its last leg)
So there we go a pretty much free redo! I like how much lighter it looks and open!
Remember way back when, I started the EASY basement bathroom reno? Yeah me either 🙂
Any who we hit a few road bumps and I had to bring in a plumber to help finish the job. So much for an easy quick project. After taking a look at the plumbing he was shock that there were no shut offs either. A few hours of him banging around the old sink was out and I was able to install the new floor. Which would have been easy if the floor was square. Cutting peel and stick tile out around pipes and the toilet was not fun! He came back a few days later to put the new sink in, again not as easy as I thought it would be. Here is a peek back at the old bathroom.
Are you ready for this…?
It looks sooooo much better, yes it turned out to be a pain in the ass but some projects are just like that. Here is a side by side look.
