Our baby's room is finally almost done...I can't resist posting a few preview pictures...
Here is the little corner by the window, with the rocker and dresser. Both pieces are repurposed items from the 70s or 80s! The dresser was my brothers growing up and I took it to college and everywhere else after that. We repainted it and added new knobs to freshen it up. The rocker-recliner we just covered with a slip-cover from Walmart, it was David's and also traveled with him to college.
Here is a closer shot of a little print I purchased from the black apple. It really ties all of the colors in the room together. I actually bought this before we were even pregnant...lucked out that it works so well in here:
More fun prints from elsita above the bookshelf (also a re-used item):
Just a few more finishing touches to pull together...still need to get a hamper and a few more wall decorations (hello etsy), but I am really feeling proud of how little we spent on this room and how easy it was to give a few old cast-offs a new life. I'm sure I'll be posting more pictures eventually, once there is actually a baby living in here!
I am feeling a mix of anxiousness and complete terror as my due date approaches. So many fears running through my head and so much anticipation. Everything is feeling so very real now...the baby has a room, we now own a car seat, we've toured the hospital...I know all these little things are necessary and part of the process of becoming parents, but in the moment sometimes I feel struck at how HUGE this change is going to be...so much bigger than anything else in our lives, ever.
