Progress on the nursery

Well we've made major progress on the nursery! Here's the before picture. It took 2 coats of primer to cover the neon green!
We've swapped the electrifying lime for a beautiful shade of pink!! We also cleaned up the trim with a fresh coat of paint. Thank you boys! Now its starting to look like a little girls room.

After our sonogram we went to Babies'R'Us and purchased our baby bedding. It's called Olivia, and its very light pink and green with lace and eyelet trim. Its simple but elegant and girly and I love it!!
I didn't like the mobile that came with the bedding but while looking online I found this great butterfly chandelier that we're using instead of a mobile. We know she won't be able to see it for a long time but we think its pretty!!
We're still missing some furniture, which should be here in May. The glider and night stand will go in the empty corner. I also found this great rug! Its perfect with the light green and pink with roses!
We still have lots of stuff to do, we have some shelves to hang and some empty places to fill. We're also going to stencil white butterflies in a few places and hang wall letters to spell out her name. I will post more pictures as we get the rest of the furniture and accessories in the room. Brian has been working so hard the past few weeks with all the painting and putting everything together, I don't know what I would do without him!! We're going to take a well deserved break for a little while and concentrate on finishing a few other projects around the house.

  1. Looks great guys. I thought it was a magazine picture at first, so elegant and coordinating. Then I saw Daisy in the picture...:) Good job bro! and Amanda. How much do you pay Daisy an hour for her help?
