Hey friends! So this week’s update is pretty boring, but I have to say I’m excited about it because it means we have floors and walls. Well, we always had floors and walls, but now we have prettier versions of both! You ready for the exhilarating photos?
So here’s where we started last week and where we’re at this week:
So the green walls are gone and have been replaced by a soft grey. Specifically, this is “Statuesque” by Behr. It was my favourite colour from the moment we first put the samples up on the wall!
The closet is still a bit of a mess. I have some plans for it, but I keep going back and forth on a few things, and we hadn’t taken the shelf and rod off just yet, so I just kind of painted around them.
Here are some of the nursery closets that are currently inspiring me, however. I’m hoping to have a dresser in there, and most likely use it as a changing table also. I won’t be putting doors back on the closet for now, so it’ll be open to the rest of the room to make things a little easier to access. That also means it has to be pretty!
So that’s where we’re going next. And just to remind you of our ongoing list, here’s where we’re at:
remove carpet and trim prep walls for painting decide on a paint colour remove closet doors
install laminate flooring
- empty closet – (not quite there yet…)
remove closet door frame and carpet paint walls
- install baseboards
- figure out closet organization
- decide on artwork for walls and/or accent wall (wallpaper or DIY)
- window treatments
- cut & paint door
- final decision on pillows and linens
- finish installing door
- put the crib together
- frame artwork
- mobile (buy or DIY?)
- decide on final plan for furniture placement
- move all furniture in
- finish arranging all artwork
- install book ledges
- complete all finishing touches – the fun part!
- NOTHING! We’re done. Now it’s time for the reveal!
And that’s that! We’re slightly behind with the closet not being emptied and the baseboards not being installed, but luckily those are fairly quick things to do.
Now if you have any knowledge to share with me about nursery closets, please do share!
Until next week!
