This past Saturday Steven and I went to work and got started on Charlie Beth's nursery. We (and by we, I mean my husband) cleared out everything from the former "man cave," and I then I gave the room a quick dusting before we started on the paint. The room is fairly small, so we figured we would be able to knock the paint job out in a couple of hours max. We were wrong. You see, the room has paneled walls. Not just any paneling either. No, these walls have some pretty unique detailing and many, many grooves. Have you ever painted paneling? It's a huge pain! Five or so hours of painting later, we were fresh out of paint and still had half a wall and major touch ups to complete. Finally by Sunday afternoon, however, Charlie's Beth's nursery had a fresh coat of paint on the walls and I couldn't be happier about the color! Next up we (and by we, I once again mean my husband) will put her crib together. I can't wait to watch this room transform into our daughter's special nursery.
Speaking of, since finding out we were expecting a baby girl I've been working up nursery ideas in my head. I knew that I wanted pink and I wanted girly. Above are some of the pictures I've been pinning to my baby board on Pinterest to use for inspiration. I just love the soft hues of the pinks and greys. I already have her bedding and curtains picked out and waiting to be ordered. I'm still on the hunt for a good rug, so if you have any ideas where I can find an affordable rug to go with the nursery theme, please send them my way! Her room is still pretty bare right now, but I can already tell that it is going to be my favorite room in the house.
