33 days!

We have a date, we have a date!

A birth date, that is!  That's right, we finally FINALLY have a date for my c section.  And that date is just 33 days away.

I'm feeling pretty good about that.  Because for the first time, I am ACTUALLY prepared.  Okay,  as prepared as one can be for a baby.  I guess what they say is true.  Third time is a charm!

With my first, I thought I had more time... So I was lacking in a few areas.  With my second... well, I was so busy taking care of my first that I forgot things!  This time, I started early, made a million lists and had help from the two most awesome, soon to be big brothers of all time.

Seriously.  I think Bean and Monkey are more excited than anyone about this baby.   Bean's been busy readying baby items with me for Belly Baby's arrival and Monkey's been spending a lot of quality time talking to my tummy.

So, anyway, one of the things I always wanted to be able to have done on time was the nursery. Which is pretty stupid considering I'm going to have Belly Baby in the room with me for some time. However, I wanted a completed nursery.  After all, this is my last.  So I decided that THAT was a major priority.

This is what we started with.

Yikes.  Okay so this is the smallest room in the house.  Perfect for a baby.  Except for the fact this it is B.O.R.I.N.G.  White walls, standard carpet... yeah.  Is it any wonder we used this for storage until Belly Baby made his presence known?

Luckily, I had a vision for this room and a husband who happens to be ultra handy. My vision was simple enough.  A room that was calm, yet cheery and would remind the Little One that he was loved.  

This is what was that boring room became.

Seriously.  It's not even the same room anymore.

The closets not done yet and there is some decor missing but all in all... I'm a very happy mama.  Especially considering how much of this room was a DIY project!

My personal favorite piece?  The mobile.

This was the last DIY piece I did in the room and the affect it had was phenomenal.  So much so, that I'll be sharing a tutorial with you here in the next few day.

In fact, I have several tutorials coming your way!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my nursery revamp.  Until next time, Happy Tuesday, folks!



  1. Your nursery turned out so cute! I love the mobile, can't wait to see the tutorial. I wouldd love to make one for myself but in gray scale. Did you paint the pictures over the changing table?

  2. Grayscale would be gorgeous! I'm thinking about making one for my living room in aquas and yellows :) The tutorial will be up next week.

    I did paint the pictures over the changing area! I'm no artist but I wanted the nursery to be as DIY as possible, lol.

    Thanks for stopping be and be sure to check back for the tutorial :)

    1. Aquas and yellows would be really pretty!
      I'll definitely keep a look out for it :) I'm in the process of redoing my room, so i'm glad I saw the mobile.

      Well the pictures turned out really good! Great job!


    2. I love room redos! Be sure to post pics somewhere :)

      And thank you!

    3. I'll most likely post pics on my blog! :)
