guest room to nursery

11 Jul

As most everyone knows by now, we are getting closer and closer to bringing a baby into this crazy world! As soon as we moved into our house we knew exactly what room would be our nursery. It had two pink walls which we also always knew, would be changed to mint.

The exciting part was moving everything out of there and finding places for it all throughout our house.  Newer construction homes in Central Florida are extremely tight on storage space so that was quite a challenge.  We got rid of some stuff, sold some stuff and moved some stuff into the various storage spaces we have dedicated throughout the house and the garage.

Our first purchase for the nursery was actually our rocker. We had gotten some cash for Christmas that we wanted to put towards the baby’s room so we headed to Buy  Buy Baby to find the perfect one!  The same weekend we also found an awesome rug from Home Goods.  It was a productive weekend!

Next step in this adventure was to paint.  While Britton was away on business one week I started the process and completed the first coat of paint on all the walls! Once he was home, he helped me finish the walls with a second coat.  It’s much more fun to paint with a partner!

In the midst of painting the space we also found out we were having a baby boy! Which helped us decide what would come next in the space to prepare for a baby boy! No more mint and coral and yellow for this room, it would now be mint, white and navy blue 🙂 Once the walls were painted it was time to figure out a dresser/changing table and get the rest of our furniture ordered.  I had already picked out a crib and had hoped to refinish an old dresser for his room.  The dresser, however, was not as easy to refinish as I had hoped so we scrapped the idea after finding the perfect piece from Adjectives Unhinged. A midcentury disaster was what it was when we found it but after they designer refinished it, it was PERFECT for our baby boy!

My in-laws purchased our crib for us so we put it together and we were well on our way to having everything we needed for baby boy!

I also wanted a bookcase where all of our baby books could face out so I found a great one on the pottery barn kids website! I also needed artwork for our celestial themed nursery so I headed straight to etsy to find some unique pieces. We also got a great mobile from etsy that we couldn’t be happier with.  Britton even found a map of the northern sky on a deal website from Europe! Two weeks ago we put it all together and his room is PERFECT and ready for his arrival (just like I am!)

We had a lot of fun putting together his room and we really can’t wait for him to spend his first years in this room and this house. We hope he loves the space we’ve created for him!
