Happy, happy Monday! This week marks 38 weeks, going into 39 and the pressure is on to get the nursery in somewhat acceptable condition. We were a bit delayed because the holidays just happened to fall exactly one month before our due date and we needed to have out-of-town guests sleep in a cozy private room, as opposed to the living room. As soon as everyone left, we went right to work. If you remember this post, then this mood board will make sense.
We are very much on track, with a few changes. Instead of romans, which were running about $1,200, we decided on a more reasonable alternativen for the time being.
These KAJSAMIA Curtains at IKEA were only $24.99 a pair and we snagged two pairs. Talk about a relief! For less than 50 bucks we scored a solid solution we could live with. Happy finger dance. Whew.
Another addition is this AMAZING rug we found at Rugs USA. I am so excited for a shag rug. There are no words.
Joey did an amazing job refinishing the matching campaign dressers, and they work so perfectly well I can cry. Literally, I can have a full blown boy-am-i-proud-of-my-hubs hormonally charged pregnancy cry over the nursery dressers.
We have not gotten any lighting or the fan we are 99% sure we are going with yet. The “A” light above is going to be kind of a night light. If you want to DIY your own carnival letter, check this post out. We did it for $11! We also have yet to wallpaper the ceiling – it seems daunting, but very very rewarding. The porcupine is also missing his monkey friend, and as soon as we have the $950 to buy it and frame it, he will no longer be lonely. In the mean time, we collected some affordable nursery art options for a different wall. These aren’t final, but I do love them!
Here is a little reveal of where we are currently at.
- Art – part done
- Wallpaper Ceiling
- Make Mobile – part done
