My mom came back with me and helped to get the closet in the guest room (soon to be nursery) organized so it can be multi-purposed into a craft/sewing/storage/baby stuff closet. It went really well and we even managed to organize the front hall closet and Brandon’s closet all in the same day. We were feeling so triumphant with our amazing time management skills that we decided to go ahead and refinish the armoire that was intended to for the new nursery. This ended up being a major time-suck and pretty much took us the rest of the week (excluding a quick trip to the book store to research baby names, of course). We were a little nervous when we first got into it…it turned out to be in much worse shape than we had anticipated. But, after many coats of paint and some wood putty, my mom worked her magic and made it adorable. We may add some more details later, but for now it looks great and I am too exhausted from our marathon week to think about it.
We were refraining from buying anything for the babies room until we find out for sure if she is in fact a she, but I’m only human and couldn’t resist a few pink items. So, the rule was amended to not buying anything that can’t be returned. Here are pictures of what we have done so far.
