Last week I posted some photos of the disaster that WAS our spare bedroom. The transformation is well under way you’ll be happy to know. Here’s a few pics of the things we’ll be doing.
We painted the room Sea Cap by Behr. (Purchased at the Home Depot!) And by we, I mean my sweet hubby. I carry the child, he takes orders on painting. I’m not sure who got the raw end of the deal, but I’m going to say it on the record: I think painting is WAY easier than these 25 extra pounds I’m lugging around.
After much debating over whether we should get one of the BEAUTIFUL iron cribs from Pottery Barn kids, we settled on the Catalina crib. I love the look of iron, but was afraid of it being uncomfortable for the baby when she could eventually roll into it. And, the Catalina was just adorable, and will work well for future kids, boy or girl.
To match, we chose this beautiful bedding from Serena and Lily, which I was just LOVE. I kinda hate “themed” rooms so I was excited to find these pretty shapes that would allow me to do what I wanted on the walls, without having to cover it with oh, butterflies or something else silly. It’s the perfect shade of pink to match the Sea Cap walls.
And yes, I know I need to take the bumper pads out when she can roll over, so stop judging before you start thankyouverymuch. One thing I’ve learned being pregnant, everyone LOVES to give you their opinion about everything you’re doing, eating and wearing AND everything you’re planning to feed and dress/sit/stand/lay your kid in.
We were insistent on making sure we still had room for guests in our 2 bedroom condo. So, the room will be both a nursery and a second bedroom. We got this pretty daybed from IKEA (again, thank you hubby for your hard work!) It mimics the lines in the Pottery Barn crib! The bottom pulls out to create two twins or a Queen bed. Perfect for guests, AND there’s still storage in the drawers to stash sheets, diapers, etc.
Also from Pottery Barn, these cute baskets will go on our changing station, which will be another exciting post in itself. We’re turning our big window seat into a changing station to avoid having to get another piece of furniture.
Finally, I have a few projects planned for the walls that I’m SUPER excited about. I’ll share one, the other will be a surprise. I found this on Pinterest (obvi) fell in LOVE with it for the room. These letters will go above the Daybed. Isn’t it so beautiful? I don’t know who that girl is, but the photographer’s credit is on the photo. So if this genius wall design is your idea, please speak up and I’ll give you credit! In the meantime, I’m totally stealing the idea. I’m not sure if I’ll do silver or white frames, or a mix/match. It depends what they have at Michael’s when I go this weekend.
And that’s all for today! Stay tuned for more updates.
