The Nursery is almost done!

We have been working on the nursery all weekend. I have been taking pics of the process and I am so very excited about how it's turning out. I can't wait to post all of the pictures, but I wanted to wait until it was completely finished before I did. In the meantime, I will give you a little teaser. Here's a little wooden bird I painted and put in the tree on the wall.

Joe is painting some shelves, which will take another day or so to complete. I am waiting for those to go up to do some final touches. I should have all the photos up by Tuesday or Wednesday. I can't wait to share them, everything turned out even better then I had hoped!

I would like give out a huge THANK YOU to Toni for helping us paint. She came over Friday night and painted all the trim. Joe hates doing the trim. Usually I do it, but I am pregnant, so Toni filled in for me. There is no way we would have finished painting the walls Friday if she hadn't helped. And the walls wouldn't have been dry enough for me to paint the tree and everything else on Saturday without her assistance. Thank you so much Toni... you are the best!


Have I mentioned before how much I appreciate Craigslist and the money I have been able to save on it? I found the mini co-sleeper that I had registered for (priced at $140) on Craigslist for $40. I met the seller at QT and the co-sleeper is in perfect condition. You can't even tell it's used! We saved ourselves $100!


This is what the little munchkin will sleep in at first right next to our bed. I will be breastfeeding, so this should make things much easier. She will be able to sleep with us, as close as possible, without actually being in the bed with us.

I hope everyone had a great weekend... I can't wait to show you the rest of the nursery!

I love Craig's List! I also love the little tease of the room! I can't wait to see it on Wednesday! This little lady will be here so soon!

The walls are looking great! And yes, Craigslist rocks! What a steal! I can't wait to hear how you like the co-sleeper! My friend said that was the best baby thing she got!

Awww, thanks for the shout out! I am loving the progress so far. Her room is going to be beautiful and so relaxing! It almost makes it ok that I had to give up my room for baby, lol!

I love it so far. You know what would be a great addition? The "make an offer" bird from our garage sale. :) Seriously, you are doing an amazing job...of course!

I saw your comment on Brittany's blog and I just had to tell you that B says the same thing as Joe about blogging!

A co-worker of mine gave me the same co-sleeper as a shower gift - I set it up and I'm SO excited to use it. Come to think of it, our baby is going to have tons of beds...the co-sleeper, the crib, a bassinet, plus we got a pack-and-play...

Why are there so many beds for one tiny human? It's funny when you think about it.
