With our little Teeny Steamie on well on her way, we had to get moving on prepping her room! SO excited to create a warm, fun space to welcome our little bundle to her home!
Bye bye Man Cave/Office- hello light & bright baby room! Some progress pics- Steve worked hard on that primer. But we called in a pro to finish the job once we were both worn out & it still needed covering!
Up went the curtains- and then I began work on the triangles!…
The triangles were inspired by these decals... but I had a slightly different color scheme in mind, and with our NOT quite a square room- the proportions of the decals didn’t quite work. So, I opted instead to paint the wall myself! It took many, many rounds of taping and painting- and the final result is SO happy!
Taping & color coding each spot:
filling it in:
And while it took a while to arrive, the crib is finally here (still waiting on the dresser)- Danny & Steve set it all set up for our little miss! Once the crib was in the elephant mobile promptly was hung as well.
I inherited this chair from my grandpa- and it’s been roaming with me from apartment to apartment- to finally our home. After many years in that lovely burnt orange/brown- for it’snew life in the nursery- I ordered this fabric, and worked with a local upholsterer to refresh the chair & ottoman. I’m SUPER in love with how it came out, and happy that it’s just as comfy- a perfect chair for nursing, napping, and hopefully future spot to read many many bedtime stories!
A quick trip to Ikea, and a not to quick attempt at assembling (the shelve may have sat half assembled for several days on our living room floor) I couldnt’ bend well to finish it- but once Steve stepped in to help it went together easily & we placed it in the corner & loaded with all the wonderful books & toy’s we received at the shower.
The nursery is coming together- now we just need the little lady to go in it!
(edit: after Steve’s office shower- I had to hang up the cute welcome banner they made! )
