Our house is finally beginning to show signs of welcoming a new baby.
We have been nesting like crazy... and all of our recent projects are the kind that actually show the fruit of our labor--it's so rewarding!
I can't wait to show you pics of all the changes! If only I could keep the house tidy long enough to click a few pics...
Greyer's room is probably still the most hazardous. Which only makes sense because it's the one room we've been working on that has a door to close off from the rest of the house. And then I just forget about it for a while.
The good thing is that we have all of our furniture pieces waiting to be assembled, but we just have to sell this big white dresser first, to make room.
And, our proudest accomplishment has been removing all the wallpaper in that room! It was by FAR the most tedious process, and the worst in the house, but Ian spent days in there and with the help of family and friends, the walls were finally ready to paint! YAYZ.
But let me show you what the room will look like once we put it all together with the help of my hand-dandy mood board I created:
As you can see, we are going for an eclectic vintage look that is pretty gender-neutral.
The only item missing from this board is a little hot air ballon mobile that has been hanging in my grandma's house for forever! I am so excited she said I could have it for Greyer's room!
Also, the brass birds pictured above are from Ian's grandma's house. She gave them to us when she moved out and I am seriously in love with them! I plan to make some sort of art piece with them to hang over the dresser.
Making a mood board of items you love before buying anything, makes the shopping process much more efficient and effective.
(You only end up purchasing items you love and that look good together rather than a bunch of things you like and think will look good together).
