I am finally starting to work on Baby Jake's nursery!
He will be here in 11 weeks and this is the first thing I have done in preparation. :)
Here are a few photos of the empty room. It is definitely a blank canvas.
This week my sister has been staying with Madi and me to keep us company while Josh has been in New York on a mission trip. She graciously agreed to help me get started painting. Despite the loathing I feel towards painting, it actually wasn't awful.
I was a little nervous about the color, but after seeing all four walls painted, I love it!
It doesn't make the room feel tight and small like I thought it would.
** As a little side note, we did have a mishap with the paint. Coming down off the latter I stepped in the paint tray and then, trying to get out, I stepped on the carpet with a paint covered foot. So, prior to the above photo I was sitting on the carpet sobbing for having ruined baby Jake's nursery [gotta love pregnancy hormones]. Lauren took over and started wetting down the carpet and soaking up the paint. It actually all came out and there is barely a dull gray tinge. Thank goodness, the nursery isn't completely ruined. And I owe it to my sister for actually fixing the problem while all I could do was cry. Haha.
So, here is the final look at the paint - I love it!
The color turned out so beautiful and I can't wait to continue on the journey to turn the nursery into this....
But, let me assure you, I cannot afford all of the wonderful accessories in this picture. That chair alone is almost $1200! So, if you feel like looking around at this nursery, let me know (comment!) if you have any ideas or sources to find similar items at a much lower price. :)
