Friday night my mom came up with a trailer full of stuff for us. Included was a table and chairs (we’ve been making do with a coffee table!) from their house, a desk, dresser and filing cabinet. From my great-grandma (who will be 107 in September) was a little-old-lady recliner. It’s, like, perfect for me right now! Also, handed down by my Aunt Yvonne was a crib and changing table.
I’ve been pretty much ignoring the whole "nursery" concept thus far. We rent and don’t plan to stay here long, hopefully not even to the end of the year. It’s not that we don’t have the room, the house is three bedroom and one we don’t use at all. But she’s mostly gonna be in our room anyway and it’s plenty big to fit all our stuff and her’s too. We’re still not going all out nursery style but I have caught a little baby fever. The crib and changing table are white, but the crib we’re going to spray paint black and do the bars in black, white and bright pink. The changing table is going to stay white but I’m going to do the front of the drawers in the same pink. We going to get some black knobs for the drawers and I’m looking for some black and white polka-dot liner paper (anyone have any ideas?) for inside. The changing cushion we’re going to cover in some black fabric with bright pink polka dots we found at Walmart tonight. We stocked up on spray paint and, since we finished cleaning the house on Friday, I’m planning to start this newest endeavor tomorrow. Pics and stuff then, but I just had to share because I’m super excited. Ali’s gonna have the cutest non-little girl room!
Also, today marks 32 weeks…otherwise known as eight months.
