Finishing touches have all been made. Everything has been hung. Monitors have been plugged in. New clothes washed. Diapers and wipes, stocked. All we need is a baby for this space! And with this heat wave, I wouldn't mind an early appearance from baby boy Z as long as all is healthy.
This space transformed over the last nine months from a rarely used guest room, full of leftover furniture from our old apartment, to this cozy, boyish, but not too boyish, nursery. Maybe subconsciously I knew we were going to have a boy all along? I never had to change the paint over from it's original color, which I chose when we embarked on operation home renovation over three years ago, keeping Benjamin Moore Del Mar Blue (you can also see a few pics of the space in our Houzz tour).
From there we started with a crib and kept on adding. My goal was to create a space that was in keeping with the over all homes aesthetic, but on a budget. To that end, we found some rickety old dressers in need fo MUCH love from our farm. Carpet, curtains, hooks, bins, all purchased on sale. Our biggest splurge was likely the rattan black out shades from Smith & Noble. Trust me, these babies are worth every penny.
We still have a few kinks to iron out.....fixes to the dressers, how to keep the rocker from making so much darn noise, I'd love to replace those sconces at some point, but all in all, I am so excited to welcome baby boy Z into this home. Now, we just need a name......
