We're halfway through our final home tour! We've started getting moving boxes and now I'm going to attempt to pack up four years of our lives in two weeks with a newborn. At least he's easier than a toddler? Send help. Or coffee. Or both.
This room required the least amount of work from a structural component, but I think I gave it the most amount of thought because of what it would be. I plan to pretty much replicate it at our new home since Parker will only be two months when we move! I absolutely love the vaulted ceiling with the beam that matches our living room and the big tall window. This was actually the one room in the house that we didn't change the light fixture in. #winning
1. Paint the room. I'm really not sure at this point how I don't have a better ladder, but this was quite the yoga/acrobatics challenge to complete this space.
2. Paint both the closet door and entry door as well as change out the hardware. I forever called this house the battle of the brass. It felt like every fixture was outdated and the non-trendy brass color.
3. The rest of the space was decorating, but there were a lot of projects that went into that
4. Make my homemade growth chart, which with us moving justifies this idea.
5. Paint both of the dressers (why is furniture so expensive?)
6. Create airplane shelf
7. Design map with quote
8. Turn Armchair into a rocker
9. Create airplane mobile
Like I said, completely blank canvas. I really think painting the interior doors made a difference. I'm hoping to paint the new house mostly in whites or grays (shocking, I know. It just makes it easy for when you switch things up!), but I may try out black interior doors next time!
Even though Parker won't have used this room very much before we leave, my heart still swells when I think about it. Because for 9 months, this is where I sat and dreamed about his little life. And the wishes I have for him and our growing family. And now he's here. Blame the postpartum hormones. But already, I have spent many a late night, fighting to stay awake, telling him how much his mom and dad love him and want the world for him.
And that's his sweet nursery! I love the theme and am so thrilled with how it turned out. I plan on keeping this as our nursery for future children and someday moving Parker into a big kid room. Which will also be oh so fun to design!
