Baby's Room!


So, this past weekend was my baby shower and I had this bright idea to have the baby's room painted by the time it came around. My initial plan was to paint it the weekend before but then Kendall and I had to change our plans for the wall since we realized that the beadboard was a little too pricey for right now. We got lazy and it never got done...
Then on Thursday morning we decided to paint the room and use a chair rail instead. So we painted like maniacs on Thursday night and finished everything Friday morning. Pretty quick I'd say. Anyways, it was a good thing that we got it done because the crib and dresser that my mom, aunt, and grandma got me came in! Very exciting.

So... here is the unveiling!

The VERY before pictures... this was what the room looked like when we first moved in:



And this is after I turned it into a guest bedroom:


Don't mind Spartacus playing with the blinds. He was so small back then!

And now here is what it is now...

I started off with a picture of the new baby dresser:



And here is my fantastic new Lazy Boy Rocker/Recliner:


Here is this side of the room (totally not done by the way. I need to hang up pictures, shelves, etc.):


Here is a better picture of the paint job:



And here is the new crib (minus mattress and bedding, covered in styrofoam!):



Anyways. That is just a middle shot of what the baby's room looks like right now!

I will post pictures from the shower once I get them from my sister :)
