Nursery Progress Report

And progress we have made! Here are the final stages of getting our nursery prepped and ready for it's new owner. Our contractor got the shelves torn down and the paint and crown molding up in a few weeks. Once the furniture was in we were ready to get moving. Pictures of the final product will be up soon (it's 95% there), until then enjoy this little sneak peek!

Mini Bedroom Makeover

We bought our bedroom furniture way back in 2008 (and wouldn't select the same set if we were buying in 2012), and for the last 4 years I have wanted to get new hardware for it. The silver knobs this dresser came with were quite boring and masculine and I wanted something to femme up the bulky piece. These ring drawer pulls were the perfect change. They gave new life to a piece I was previously over for less than $40, win! 
After...ta DAH
 And now for my second act...When we first moved in the walls were painted a beige color, with that in mind we picked these silver sage lamp shades. Since then though we have painted the walls a dark grey and the shades were no longer cutting it. The new white shades were again an easy quick change and they look much better with our all white bedding (which I love because you can bleach it and keep it looking brand spanking new, even after spilling Chinese food all over it!)
Before- Shades Blending into the Wall

After- Shades pop and the nightstand magically are clean! 
Next we will add a pack and play...it should be a real fancy finishing touch for the room;)

I've Got You Under My Skin

Today I am 35 weeks pregnant! And while I haven't been busy blogging I have been more than busy getting everything in our home ready for the little man. 5 more weeks and my baby boy will be here to use all his new clothes, toys and supplies! Here is an update on what each week has looked like for me. It seems every time I step into my closet there is something else that no longer fits... so these pictures are probably going to stop showing up here going forward because I'm getting to the point of just huge. I can't wait to meet my tenant getting me there;)
