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!

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
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:
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.
Tonight the hubs and I started the dresser redoing… Here are some better before shots
You can see all the dings and scratches all over the top. I wanted to just sand it down, but after research it said I should strip it 1st. Well that and the hubs told me as well, but whatevs. We started the process by spraying the dresser down with thiner and waited 15 LONG minutes. I’m not a very patient person.
I was shocked how well it worked, took off most of the clear coat. You really can see a big difference in the pictures below. Next step will be the legs and drawers. After that let the sanding begin! And a big thanks to miko for his help xo
A few weeks back the hubs came across a $19.00 dresser at the salvation army. He sent me a text pix of it and we both thought it would be perfect for the guest room! Its all wood, mid century modern. It however has seen better days, pretty banged up. Over the next week or so my goal its to sand it down and clean it up. Right now i’m thinking we will spray it black. But if the wood looks ok after sanding we might try and re-stain it a nice dark color. I’d also like to buy some new pulls for it.
sorry for the crappy cell phone pix, here is how she looked at the store.
