About a month ago, a ton of gals I know who are also due in March started posting photos of these beautiful nurseries. They are all freshly painted with furniture put together and in place. This was officially my cue to swing into full-on, nursery anxiety mode because here are the nursery before pictures:
So J and I have finally started getting our act together in terms of this nursery. Last weekend J began painting, although this is not yet complete as he got side tracked with a little upper respiratory virus.
As you saw in this post, our plan is to put together a simple, clean, fresh space with fun pops of color in the accessories we choose. Here is our to-do list:
Replace the broken window
Replace the door and it’s frame
Spackle and Paint (almost there!)
Build in the closet with cube storage and a counter for the changing pad
Purchase and hang art
Make boxes for the bookshelves
Make and hang an abacus
Purchase a pouf or ottoman
Put together a finish dresser
Put together and finish ikea shelves
Put together all other furniture
Purchase additional room accessories
Clearly, we have a lot to do. I won’t lie, I’m having a little bit of anxiety over the whole thing, especially since J won’t allow me to paint or really do too much of the work. He is still a bit under the weather so we’ll see how much we’re able to get accomplished this weekend. I think we’re definitely being a bit ambitious but I have high hopes for a nice room for our sweet gal before she arrives.
Ok, your turn: what have you been procrastinating on lately?
