Nursery Beginnings...

One of the exciting things we get to do is our little man's nursery! I have been collecting inspiration pictures for quite some time. I always knew I wanted to paint the walls blue, but finding the perfect blue might have been a HUGE task. But guess what? It was quite simple!! I had numerous swatches of aqua/robin egg from over the past couple of years. The only place we hadn't looked was Benjamin Moore. We headed there on Sunday to take a look and found some very lovely blues. We narrowed it down to two different blues and Josh picked the winner. I am so glad we went with his pick! Its called Blue Seafoam. Hopefully this translates well on your screens:

We bought our crib, though it is not set up just yet. We have yet to get the mattress and bedding. The crib is the white JennyLind by DaVinci. It is by far my favorite crib design!

I have a vintage white dresser I refinished that I will reuse for a change table. Maybe change out the hardware? Uncertain to that just yet! I love what is on there already.

Remember this? It will be painted and put in baby's room to hold various baby needs :)

And of course some inspiration! I am not a theme lover for nurseries so I will likely take a bit from all my inspiration pictures.

Hope this gives you a bit of an idea as to my little man's soon to be first bedroom! It's so fun planning and executing it. Now...to continue the execution...

Cloffice aka Closet Office

We have been trying to come up with creative ways to combine my guest/craft room (the Dolly Room) with my DHs office/collectible room. Why? Well to make a nursery of course! Let me tell you, this has been the chore of a lifetime. It is so hard to combine these two types of spaces that Josh and I both agree on (yes, there have been hormonal tears!). Josh does however, like the idea of a 'cloffice' to use the space most efficiently. But the Dolly room is pretty girlie as it stands (But, he has his Garage right? RIGHT?!) As so many of us do, I have turned to Pinterest to find inspiration and ideas. Though I would share some with you.

Have any of you turned a closet into a workspace? Is it functional? Any great advice? We realized we need to but the "infrastructure" to be able to put stuff away and give it a new home. I will let you know how this goes! Its in the planning stages so...hopefully we will have someting in the near future!

Baby Shower!

My wonderful and talented friend Jenn over at Clean and Scentsible hosted a super fun and adorable baby shower for yours truly last weekend. I have to say, I was overwhelmed with the thought and love put into it. As this is our first baby we had nothing baby related prior to this shower and I am floored by the adorableness of 'all things tiny or baby'. Who knew baby boy clothes were so darn cute?! I just wanted to link you over to Jenn's blog so you can oooh and ahhh at her creativity and see how lucky I am to have a friend like her! Everyone involved did an amazing job! Thanks ladies! xoxo Click here to go to the baby shower blog post!

Hope you all have a wonderful day!
