A Nursery: Second Edition

This is our first redo of a reno. I guess that happens after living in a home for more than four years now! Below are pictures of our guest bedroom when we moved in. We had updated it slightly by painting the walls, trim, and doors, as well as replacing the light fixture.

After (the first time)

We hadn't planned on repainting the room when we decided to get it ready for the new baby, but when we went to touch up the paint it was discolored. So we decided to update the paint, replace the trim to match the rest of the house, and we added new closet organization (makes a nesting mama happy!!). Cordie had to help :)


And the result ... I love it.  So ready to meet this little girl. I never really got the "nesting" bug when pregnant with my first, but this one has given it to me bad. I've reorganized several of the closets in the house and purged so many items. There are still so many things I want to do as well, but I think God and baby girl have been reminding me to take it easy as well with so many contractions these last few weeks. So repainting the exterior of the house will just have to wait haha.

The bottom two are drawers. We still want to replace the closet doors, but unfortunately the store no longer sells the ones we used in the other rooms :(

How sweet is that mobile? The butterflies are just the right colors. I think something could be added to the wall above the crib, but I haven't found "it" yet.

Ikea dresser that was in a million pieces, but it's great for the space. I just spray painted the knobs so they weren't such a harsh black color for a nursery.

Love this toy/book bin.

New rocker! My tailbone is so happy after suffering through nursing in the last one.


She needs to stay put for a bit longer, but we're counting the days until this room has the final missing piece!

I think you and Ben have a real knack for this. How about a quilt on the wall over the crib? Gives it some texture. Love it and you all. Nice job!

If you're at all interested in knowing . . . the Catholic Dogma . . . that we *must believe* to get to Heaven, and which you have *never* seen . . .

I list it on my website > > www.Gods-Catholic-Dogma.com

The Catholic God knows . . . what we think and believe . . .

Catholic writing of Romans 1:21 >
"They ... became vain in their thoughts, and their foolish heart was darkened."

Catholic Faith (pre-fulfillment) writing of Deuteronomy 31:21 >
"For I know their thoughts, and what they are about to do this day."

Catholic Faith (pre-fulfillment) writing of Job 21:27 >
"Surely I know your thoughts, and your unjust judgments against Me."

The group that calls itself "islam" ... is not a religion. Fully proven by the fact that the "koran" says the *opposite* of the Old Testament Prophets > Section 113 of the site.
