Nursery is Painted!

Chad and I have been very busy preparing for the babies. This week I passed the 12 week mark of my pregnancy, a milestone I have been looking forward to for some time!

It may seem a little early to be making any major plans, but our reasoning is that it is better to do it now in case I have to go on bedrest later, etc. God willing, in less than 6 months we will have 2 newborns to care for. When you think of it that way, it doesn't seem very far away at all!
Here are a few of the major changes we have undertaken:

* Broke down the old bed in the 1st floor guest bedroom and took it to the dump

* Moved the guest bed from the 3rd floor nursery to the 1st floor guest bedroom (Note: We couldn't have done this without the help of our awesome neighbor Dustin, who came over and helped Chad move the mattress, box springs, and headboard down three flights of stairs! Thank you Dustin and Carlea for being such great friends and neighbors!)

*Rearranged the living room to create a baby equipment/play space

* Ordered the nursery furniture

*Hired painters to paint the nursery

Without further ado, I have included a few pictures below:

This wall is where we plan to put the two cribs.

The hutch/changing table will go on this wall.

This is their closet.

We plan to put a glider/rocker in front of this window, but we haven't picked one out yet.

There is also a full bathroom in here, convenient for bath time!

I hope you all like how it turned out. I picked this color 2 years ago when we first moved in and only painted an "accent wall" this color. I liked it so much I decided to paint the whole nursery this color. Also it is gender-neutral and I think would be nice for boys, girls, or both!

I mentioned above that we also ordered the nursery furniture. Most of it is already in at the local JCPenney store, we just have to go pick it up. The only thing we are missing is the changing tower and that won't be in until November.

Below are pictures of the nursery furniture we ordered but you just have to picture it in WHITE because that is what we actually ordered:

We ordered two of these cribs in white.

This is the changing tower/hutch (also ordered in white)

Finally, here is a picture of the baby equipment/play area we have cleared out in our living room, it doesn't look like much but when you have a three story townhouse space is at a premium so it seems like a lot of space to us!

We are so excited about the babies and we love being able to plan and prepare for them!


  1. The nursery my parents had for me and then my sister was green (probably two shades lighter than the paint y'all have used). Green is a very calm/ soothing color. I like it! : ) I can't wait to see how the room comes together with the addition of the furniture.

  2. Looks beautiful! I love the color and can't wait to see everything in place.
