We're about DUE for an update!

Baby time is coming super super soon! However, we have had a crazy busy month & totally neglected the nursery (forget about the other 8 months we had to prepare)! My wonderful handy hubby & I got ourselves busy and finally did the nursery! It's amazing what a little paint, wood, and VINYL can do!
Check out our before:

(It's a pretty sad 'before' shot! Check out the super safe wire hanging down, I'm an awesome mom.)

Here are our afters:

I am so happy with how it turned out. My husband put up the bead board & square in no time! I had ordered a dark brown crib, but they shipped me a white one. Since we've put everything off for so long- I figured I would just settle for the white one. However, now that's it's done, I don't feel like I settled at all. My dark brown bumper should be coming soon & that will help separate the whites just perfectly!

When I was about 6 months pregnant, I laid awake all night planning my nursery! I am in love with the owl. Also, check out our cute little bird family above the square! We painted the stripes the same color, just different glosses to add more depth.

To the left of the owl I will put up our baby's of right now, she's nameless- so sad!

If you have read my blog at all before, you know I am an avid garage saler! I bought the shelf for 50 cents and gave it a good chocolate brown face-lift! I then put my little baby block together today! Sure love having a vinyl machine laying around.

My sweet mom brought down a dresser for us to use for the baby's room...all to realize just how small our nursery really is! Thank heavens our home has the built in closet organizers. The other half the closet if full of diapers, wipes, bottles, ect! Also, thank heavens for my wonderful sis-in-law that give us lots of newborn girl clothes.

(We had forgot what a puker our second child was until we opened our box of newborn clothes to find a box of yellow clothes...nasty.)

I plan on spending lots of time in this comfy chair- snuggling my sweet baby & trying to keep at least one eye opened!

I will still be taking vinyl orders, especially with the Holidays around the corner! However, I plan on taking this month off! Feel free to place orders now- as I will work on them in the order I receive them (said in my 'robotic phone voice')!
