I know I’ve mentioned that I haven’t done much for the nursery. I haven’t had the chance to fully dig into the details, but I feel like I was being unfair to myself. Yes, the room is currently a disaster. It’s a hodge podge of old furniture and I’ve been using it as a holding storage area. But I think I do have an okay vision for it. We picked out a crib!!! And wallpaper, rug, paint, and fabric swatches and samples are starting to roll in. I’m most excited about the wallpaper…. I had a few samples sent to us and ended up DMing with the brand it turns out there’s another colorway coming in the next month or so…. 100% solidified my decision because it’s exactly what I had originally hoped for. Will of course share more as time goes on.
The biggest thing regarding the nursery is that when we bought our house, I assumed I’d turn what’s now my office into a nursery. But when I actually became pregnant, I realized it was more practical to turn the guest room into the nursery and turn my office into more of a guest room. I’m hiring movers to assemble and reassemble beds and move others into storage. It’s the one thing I was dreading the most. And then realized it would 100% be worth hiring people to help out with this to take it off our plate. The current-guest-room-soon-to-be-nursery is a BIG room. It’s actually bigger than our main bedroom and has an actual closet (versus my office which has a funky long closet that isn’t very practical). The nursery will have plenty of room for tummy time and toys. And space for baby to play/move as time goes on.
Thought I’d share some of the nurseries I had saved on Pinterest when we found out we were having a baby just for fun.
