The First step I’m taking is to paint the nursery. When we moved into this house the room was a green color. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again I’m just not a green room person. Especially solid green on every wall. I’m all about the color accent wall and little more neutral So here’s a glimpse at the ‘before” shots of the nursery. The room is on the smaller side, but it is perfect for a cozy nursery. My goal is to make a masculine nursery that can easily grow with our boy. I don’t want to make it too cutesy but I want to make it comfortable. I am finally getting what my friends have been saying about there not being enough ” boy stuff” out there. There is a ton of fun and frilly girl stuff, but not a whole lot for boys. Well You can bet I’ll be sharing more fun boy themed items in the future!
I’ve got my colors picked out and my paint bought. As a matter of fact I spent yesterday painting the room with my darling husband’s help. I can’t recommend waiting until you are in your third trimester to paint a nursery. Needless to say I am dog tired as I am writing this. But I’m happy to now have a “clean canvas” to work with in the room. I’ve also been working on some fun tutorials this week that I can’t wait to share with you.
Here’s a quick video of the before shots:
I do have to mention that I am starting to feel run down in my third trimester, and while I love working on this blog – I plan on slowing things down a little for my health and my baby’s. Fleece fun is fabulous, but family and health come first! I will of course still be sharing fun patterns and tutorials, just not necessarily at the same pace as I have in the past. I appreciate you patience with me. But I have to honest at this point in the game if I have the choice between working on the blog or taking a nap – nap is going to win every time. =)
