I’m currently 22 weeks pregnant and so excited to finally be getting started on the baby’s nursery. I’ve so many fun projects for you to see over the next couple of month.
Firstly, and most importantly, we’ve narrowed down the “pops of color” that we want to add to the nursery. If you remember my original nursery board (before we knew the baby’s gender) it was pretty neutral. I knew that as soon we found out he or she that I would further refine it.
So…now that we know that Baby Shaughnessy is a BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’ve had to do some rethinking and rejigging of the mood board. But firstly, this is my week 19 pic from right after we found out the baby’s gender:
I can’t believe how much I’ve grown in the past month. The bump just came on all of a sudden – all 8lbs of it!
Back to the matter at hand. I now present you with the updated mood board for the nursery:
As you can see I’ve added a lot of wood tones to break up the neutral. The original elements are still there, I’ve just kind of balanced it out a bit more.
Apart from the wood accents, there will also be pops of dark blue and mint green courtesy of the bedding, storage baskets and changing pad cover.
One BIG change that I never mentioned is that we decided to actually do the nursery in our guest room as opposed to the office. The office is a north facing room and gets NO LIGHT which was really bothering me. Also, the only window in that room butts right up against the wall so curtains (If I decide I even want them) would be impossible to hang or I’d have to do that weird one panel thing.
Now, I’m much happier with the bigger space in the guest room. It has great light and a ton more closet space too. Unfortunately, the hardwood floors in there are in extremely bad shape. Yes, there’s always something that bugs me!! There’s deep scratches, worn patches and dark water damage to contend with. My little shag rug might end up being a rather large area rug to try to conceal the damage.
Have a great Tuesday! I’m off to supervise the dresser project!
