i think that fact that the reno is currently underway has kicked my nesting urge into overdrive! (which is crazy because i didn’t think it could get any stronger!).
chris started ripping down walls two days early so that was awesome. he is done that now and he’s starting to frame the new doorway and wall and hang drywall today 🙂 we picked up crown molding samples for the ceiling and shelving today so we could decide together before i head north to my parent’s for a couple of days. it’s like those home reno shows where you leave and come back and everything is beautiful and amazing and done…except mine won’t be done and i still have to do the painting and clean the house LOL.
all of this is prep for the bathroom reno that will take place this summer but it means that i will finally get the nursery completely completed and i can get things in their proper positions. most exciting of all i will get to put the crib together 🙂 we have no bedding or a mattress for it but i can at least see the space it takes up and also store some stuff in it. i only have three pieces of artwork to put on the shelf but it will finally be HER space and i am very happy about that.
apinkladybug asked if i would be posting about the nursery and so for her viewing pleasure, here is the transformation of the nursery so far:
the lovely wallpapered room and dark stained floor – BEFORE
so many layers of wallpaper! this is how the 3/4 wainscotting idea was born 😉
midway – floor refinished
painted and pickle stained and pretty much done… until
are we the only people that redecorate AND THEN RENOVATE!? LOL
so this is the state of the project at the moment. in a couple of days time we’ll have a new doorway and walls. we’ll get the ceiling crown molding up and the shelving above the wainscoting done. we’ll paint and dust and then we can get things settled into their final resting places.
the dresser will serve as the changing table and will be in front of the window.
the carpet can go back down.
all the stuff that was in this room needs to find a new home, time to get creative with the storage options! haha the white armoire in the background will be around the corner on the back wall of the room.
the crib will be around the corner (across from window).
here’s hoping for no hiccups while i’m away 😉
