Nursery FIN…for now

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

Nursery Part 3

Here was my view while the hubs put the crib together. It went together really easily and minimal cursing, same with the dresser / changing table. We both love how it looks! We took a gamble when picking out this crib and dresser, we never got to see it in person. I looked at lots of reviews and everyone raved about it. I was not disappointed at all, the bee bees room is starting look more and more like a nursery!

Dressing a Room

Over the next few months I’ll slowly be adding more and more to the nursery. It’s taking everything in me not to just finish the whole room RIGHT NOW! I’ve had many girl friends tease me about this (they know me to well).  Heres the room all empty ready to be dressed for beebee.

It’s really not the biggest room at 9×10 feet, but all empty it feels bigger then when it was my office. Now for a sneak peek

  

check out boose (our cat) playing in the packing material. Coming up next building the crib you know you are just SO excited … uuhh

Nursery Paint

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 😉

The Nook

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.

S#@t Or Get Off The Pot

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.

YAY!! 🙂
