Thanks for letting me vent the other day! I appreciate your support and don’t worry – I will still be around! I just don’t know how to stay away!! I know you guys are probably looking forward to seeing some of the progress that we are making on the nursery! Well – we haven’t gotten a whole lot finished but we do have a basic shell together that I wanted to share with you guys as a “before” and show you what I was planning!
So without further ado – here is what the nursery looks like now! As you can see it is pretty basic. And pretty small!
Yep so – basically – all that is going to fit in this room is a crib, my cushy comfy rocking chair and ottoman and a dresser. You can see my pile of kids books I have started collecting in the floor there.
The way I look at it – if the Lil Man showed up today – we would have a place to put him! However – I am planning on getting a few things done over the next 10 weeks before he is supposed to officially arrive! Wanna see my to do list? Check it out!
And on this side of the room….
So the hubby is already in the process of stripping the dresser down and restaining it darker to match the crib. We are also going to install the wall shelves so I can create the book wall of my dream nursery over on the wall next to the window. In hindsight – getting my heart set on that look was brilliant since there is so little room in the room.
And yes … the chair is technically too big. But I don’t care! I love that thing and I already spend a lot of time there resting and reading to the Lil Man. It is awesome it glides and swivels – so we can easily spin it to get in and out of the closet. I am not too worried about it blocking anything.
So stay tuned over the next couple weeks to see how this unfolds!! I am looking forward to sharing the progress with you guys!
