Nursery Transformation - Phase 1

The nursery is currently a work in progress. To do: paint room, select fabric for bedding, curtains and rocker, pick out furniture and so on.

Phase 1 - Painting

We decided to paint the walls blue and would then see which fabrics we like for the bedding. So to get this project started I painted the nursery on Saturday. Here are some before and after pics. I still need to cut in the ceiling and hang the blinds then Phase 1 will be complete.

Mom and I have scouted out several fabric stores and found so many fun and fabulous fabrics. Of course, I love all the pink and purple but I will have to save that for another time! I told Mom to remind me in about 3 or 4 years that I want to do this again. Trent said that is fine, but we will probably have another boy...wishful thinking on his part!

I'm leaning towards the green and brown fabric.

On another note, my car was in the shop this week and they gave me a Mini-Cooper. It was a lot of fun to drive, although I'm not sure how safe these little cars are.

Week 23 Lessons Learned:

I've survived this pregnancy pretty much unscathed, but these growing boys are starting take it out of me. My heartburn is ever present, I've found that I need to eat more often and fatigue is starting to set in. I also tried to put on a pair of heels today, which fit fine last week, and are now OH SO tight. Besides my belly, butt and boobs getting bigger, so are my feet!

14 weeks and counting!

  1. Love that blue on the walls! I also like the green and brown fabrics. And really those could be used for a girl, too, by just changing out a few accent pieces. (Our first nursery was greenish blues with tan, cream and brown accents, and the walls were painted cardboard brown. I added some soft floral accessories for the girls, and focused on the blue for my little man, and every time it was perfect.)

    Can't WAIT to see the final product! But maybe you should do more delegating and less actual working from now on...!!!
