Welcome to BABY WEEK! A week of sharing all the special projects we did for our little one, the homemade gifts that were given from our family and friends, how we organized baby’s room and more!
We will start the week by unveiling the nursery! In a perfect world I’d have another nine months to prepare baby’s nursery. I have so many fun projects that I would love to do and this room would look different if we weren’t renting and didn’t have plaster walls (that crumble with every nail). But here it is! We enjoy the room and we can’t wait to see our lil’ peanut in it!
First a few “before” pictures when this room was still a guest bedroom/office.
And now.. the nursery!!!

There it is! We started emptying out this room and preparing it for baby the day we found out about our little peanut. We started by putting our futon on Craiglist. We worked slowly and we were able to create an environment that we can’t wait to share with our little peanut!
