But you guys, getting the nursery ready has been SO fun for me! And it has been such a comforting, tangible way to prepare for our baby! Did I go a bit overboard? Ben would definitely say so, but then again, he's been with me for 11+ years, so he should know by now that going overboard is kind of my M.O ;)
And you know what? Even though I'm calling our nursery "done" for now, it's secretly not done [shhhh, don't tell Ben!]. I still want to paint some whales on the white toy chest shown in the pic above, I want to hang some family pics on the wall that's next to the crib wall, I want to get another small throw rug for in front of the crib, and I could go on and on...but for now, I'm just calling it done and telling myself that if these things don't get done in the next few weeks, we'll all live.
So lets go on the tour, shall we? Scroll down for some snapshots of our old bedroom-turned-nursery [and please excuse the dark-ish pics, it was the best I could do on a fairly cloudy day and I'm no photog]:
I spray painted all of the frames (and the mirror) that you see on the walls around the room, and of course painted all of the little watercolors that match her room + decor ;)
Thanks SO much to all of the amazing people who have gifted us with bags of hand-me-downs and new gifts alike!
...And thus commences our tour. Thanks for sticking with me as I go down my baby-related rabbit hole these days. And thanks for all the sweet feedback from yesterday's blog post. You guys are the best.
Oh, and for those who might be interested, here's the crib we purchased, here's the throw rug, and here's our glider (which we LOVE and was totally worth the investment).
