Nursery Update! And its just the beginning. It is seriously my new happy place in the house. I just love the freshness of the white and in the morning when the sun is filtering through the blinds, it feels like heaven. I cannot wait until she is there to complete it.
Sorry these aren't the best pictures, but this was at 12am after a long day of driving to Dallas to go to Ikea to pick up the chair and ottoman and then putting it together when we got back. It is so fun having all of her furniture in place, although I decided I'm going to place a bookshelf we currently have in the guest bedroom and put it on the left side of the crib for her books and some of her toys. But other than that, its just curtains, pictures, a mirror and the accessories that need to be added. Oh, and Britt!!:) The best part!
The crib was a find off of Craiglist for $100 and needed no clean up or painting job so that was a blessing.
I bought her blocks from Anthropologie and I LOVE THEM. I'm really into classic wooden toys, which Ikea has a lot of, for great prices, but these blocks were too cute to pass up.
I found the dresser at an antique shop for $70 and repainted it and put new hardware on it. I"m not sold on the knobs yet, but I'm letting it sink in to see if I want to change them. And clearly I have to drill new holes for the one drawer.
You'll get a full run through when its complete.:) Hopefully when we get back from VA, I'll get to crackin'. Only 8 more weeks till the due date!:)
