Remember what this room looked like when we moved in?? Several posts ago I posted about the nursery make-over that I’m working on. It’s coming along!! There are still some things I need to get done (1. Find a cozy rug…..2. Buy a crib mattress……3. Move the dresser in and organize his clothes inside…….4. Put baskets with necessities on the changing table…….5. Make a changing table slipcover……etc.etc.), and really, will the baby even notice if those things aren’t “done” before he’s born?? Highly unlikely. LOL
Anyhow, here’s what the room looked like a YEAR AGO (man, I can’t believe it’s been that long) when we first moved in, and the work we had to do to remove the hideous wallpaper:
Wallpaper removed…..left with nasty yellow paint, blotches on the wall, and a heaping mess of wallpaper scraps. GROSS.
AFTER……(STILL IN PROGRESS)…….
The super-discounted Shermag glider that I found for $20 at my favorite thrift store! I made cozy slipcovers (although there is still one side arm piece I have to sew up this week! The fabric cost me about $30. But hey, $50 for a good glider–you can’t beat it.
This is what the chair looked like BEFORE (ick!!):
This changing table I scored for $12.00 at the thrift store. It’s in perfect condition! When I’m done with it, I’ll re-sell it on Craigslist. Hell–even if I sell it for $20, you figure I made a profit, LOL
I have to get rid of those curtains, too. We brought them from the condo. They used to be in Kwabena’s old room, and I thought they would work in the baby’s room. But they’re much too short for the windows in the new house, and they are a bit bulkier than I would like. They’ll do, for the meantime. But they’re on my list of “Get Rid Off.”
I also need to move the baby’s dresser into the room. Still not sure if I am going to paint it or not. Maybe paint the whole thing white, and then mod-podge the front of it, and put new knobs?? The sky is the limit! And considering I only paid $16 for it, I can do whatever I damn well please with it, without fear of screwing it up. LOL.
So only 6 more days until my due date!! Still feels a bit unreal……………I haven’t even packed a hospital bag yet!!!! **GASP**
