It was a slow and steady process, but I think the nursery is pretty much done. My mom helped me paint during one of her visits and Brian installed the closet. I love sitting in here to read or listen to music. The glider is seriously amazing and it fits me being 5 feet 3 inches so my feet touch the floor. The dogs also enjoy laying in the sun that pours in. It actually gets quite hot in there in the mornings, so we still have to install a ceiling fan at some point, but with a winter baby we still have some time to get that done.
Going into this, I was all about creating storage space because the room is quite small. I plan on keeping my pump and supplies in the nightstand, the dresser will double as our changing table so diapers will go in one of the top dresser drawers. And the cubes and boxes in the closet can hold a bunch of other miscellaneous things. One is already filled with hats. This kid has so many hats.
He also has his own adjoining bathroom. It’s jack-and-jill to the guest room. The theme in there is nautical but I’m not rushing out to decorate. I’m resigning from all future decorating jobs until further notice lol
