Nursery Progress

We made huge progress on the nursery over the past few days. I was starting to think it would never get done, but it is now (mostly) up and running and functional.

The room started out off-white with stained-wood trim. I pulled all of the trim, doors and baseboards out… sanded them down to bare wood… painted it white and put it back in.

We also got some help a few weeks ago painting a few rooms in the house, including the nursery. Mal and I picked out a yellow color for the top of the room and a khaki color for the bottom.

HOME STUFF

Mal wanted a chair rail, so I put one in… I’m surprised at how much of a difference it makes with the whole room.

I put the crib together and moved the dresser and chair into place tonight… we’re still waiting on a nightstand/table that we ordered to arrive and I’m also going to build a little bookcase. We’re going to take the next couple of weeks to put some finishing touches on the room and add some more decor. So this isn’t a completed nursery, but just getting this stuff done is a huge weight off of my shoulders. I was starting to get stressed about everything.

Here are some more views of the room…

The general idea for our son’s room involves jungle animals, so there are plenty of stuffed giraffes, elephants, monkeys, etc…

Our bedding is freaking cute. At least I think so…

Night-light…

A guy that works with Mallory’s dad made this rocking horse for us… Quite possibly the coolest rocking horse I have ever seen.

This little chair used to belong to my dad when he was a kid… this teddy bear will keep it warm for now until baby is big enough to sit in it.

We will be adding stuff to the room as we get it ready, so expect more pictures before baby makes his appearance.

  • You are soo handy. This baby will probably be the most photographed child ever. You should just seek out modeling opportunities from the start.

  • Wow, I like it a lot! Good job you two!
