Nursery progress!

Who knew this room could start to look so great? Or make me so happy!?

I forgot to take before photos, but picture well-worn, tan carpets and a chalky, pale blue-colored paint. Not to mention a number of drywall imperfections that the hubs tried to sand down.

We painted a sandy tan color to keep things light and casual (plus it helps for the eventual resale of the house). Carpet was pulled up and the oak hardwoods hiding beneath were refinished. And, of course, the nursery furniture (Bonavita Metro collection) was delivered and assembled.

We have a lot more to do -- including installing the ceiling fan, adding the glider to the back, right corner by the window, finding an area rug, and adding in all the decorations -- but it's looking great and I cannot wait to see it come together!

The view from the door.

From the other side of the room, looking towards where the glider will go.

The convertible crib (will go to toddler bed and then full-size bed).
