First a disclaimer: The room isn’t DONE done. But it’s ready for a baby (even if I’m not).
The view from the doorway, which isn’t all that different from the sneak peek that I shared a couple weeks ago.
The dresser was the McHusband’s and started off like this:
The McHusband did a great job of repainting it.
And I did a great job of picking out its new knobs.
And to complete our 360 view of the room, here’s the twin bed that I really wanted to keep in the room and luckily it works to keep it up against the wall.
My mom made the curtains, but I had the idea to use galvanized pipe as the curtain rods.
The bookshelf works for now. I have a feeling it’ll be an evolving project.
From top to bottom:
I do have a little secret to share. One of the reasons I’m so happy that the twin bed is staying in the room is that it provides a lot of convenient storage for baby items we’ll eventually need but that don’t need to be out right now.
A HUGE shout-out and thank-you to the McHusband who put up the board-and-batten treatment and the crown. He did a fantastic job and I can’t express how much I appreciate him working so hard to make my vision happen.
I was really happy to find a small gray ceiling fan that worked perfectly in this room.
One thing that’s missing? A rocker. I waited until all the furniture was in place before ordering one because I wanted to make sure it would fit. It’s going over there in the corner between the crib and the window where the kid-sized rocker is currently playing placeholder. The baby may be here before the chair, but I think we’ll live for a couple of days.
I’ve got a few things for the walls, but I’m not quite ready to affix them yet so I’ll do a nursery update at some point to show you how the room ultimately looks.
Maybe there’ll even be a baby in some of those photos.
