Baby Room Progress!

We are SO close to finishing up the baby room! Which is good, since her due date is arriving swiftly. With both baby showers finished (more on that to come), the baby stuff has really piled up and now the final thing is to organize everything! 

So, sadly, I don't have a complete Before and After to share, but here's what we have so far. We started off with a Craigslisted crib that needed a little TLC. It had great bones, but someone had left it out in the elements and it needed a new coat of paint. So we took it from this:

To This: 

Josh did that with the help of a paint sprayer. I love how the finish turned out (way better than painting by hand or spray painting from a can), it's soft and even and the whole crib looks 100% better. Here's Josh modeling the getup used for the paint sprayer:

As far as the rest of the room goes, we have curtains (sewed out of vintage fabric by me), a new chair (from IKEA), a cute coral colored ottoman (Target), a lamp (also Target), and a furry little friend (a splurge I just couldn't resist).

 Currently we are finishing up a dresser redo that I can't wait to share! We took the ugly blue dresser from below and completely transformed it into something much easier on the eye. So stay tuned for a few more baby-room-related makeovers!


  1. Oh, this is exciting! It looks great and I love that the style is not overly baby-ish. :)

    1. Thanks Jane! We were going for a less baby-ish look so I'm glad that's coming across. =)

  2. LOVE IT!! Nice work :-)
    Can't wait to get working on our nursery!!

    1. It's so fun! I love nursery decorating. Can't wait to see how yours turns out!

  3. I love that the room doesn't scream baby. I'm totally take notes for future use. I love that you're staying true to your sense of style
