So I thought I would show a few pictures and let you know what's left to do.
Here's what you see when you walk in the door. The crib was a hand-me-down from Tim's sister and it's perfect! The glider was left behind from one of Tim's roommates a while ago and we bought the ottoman on the way back from a UGA game for $15. I recovered spray-painted them white and recovered them in a neutral stripe (which already has tons of spit-up stains - ew).
I got this super cute origami mobile from a very talented Etsy seller. Best part? We bartered! One of my costumes for one of her mobiles! And Harris LOVES staring at it! And behind the crib is the quilt I made Harris - my first quilt!
And yes, Harris just hung out on the couch while I cleaned up the room and took the pictures. And as soon as I was finished, he threw a fit. ;-)
The other wall...
Our built in bookcase holds all of Harris' items that we don't need everyday. Plus a few cute toys and books.
This is a sign I saw on Pinterest and wanted to make. We finally got in hung up a few days ago! I love it! I cut the boards to size, stained them to match the top of the dresser and then painted the verse on (after tracing the letters of course).
This dresser was a gift from one of Tim's aunts. I stripped the top, and stained it and then painted the rest white. And then spray-painted the original hardware with oil-rubbed bronze. LOVE it! It holds all of Harris' clothes, burp cloths (so many!), blankets, and such.
So that's the nursery so far. I still have a few things I want to do before it's actually completely finished.
#1 - Put pictures in frames. I'm a terrible mother.
#2 - Stain and paint this little end table to match the dresser. I'm waiting for slightly warmer weather.
#3 - Remove the printing from this wipes container. I read about removing printing from plastic using acetone nail polish remover. And yes, I want it completely white because I am my mother.
#4 - Put anti-slip things under the rugs we got from Ikea. We pretend like these two rugs (way cheaper!) are one big rug - which is much easier when they stay in place.
#5 - Hang room-darkening curtains so we can start having Harris nap in the nursery.
#6 - Move the video monitor from our room to the nursery so that we can watch him nap.
