I finished a few major projects that really helped to move the room along. To start off with, I painted. I love how much paint can change a room!!! All of our townhouse is this off white color that chips really easily. And the trim doesn't match the walls. So, putting on some paint really helped change the entire tone of the room. And helped save my sanity, a bit.
The color I chose was Knoxville Gray by Benjamin Moore. I had it color matched at the home depot in Behr. It went on really great and I only had to do one coat! Before anyone freaks out, I painted in a well ventilated room.
I got so excited half was through that I hung up the curtains and started styling the nightstands. Painting was a two day job, being 26 weeks pregnant makes it a bit harder.
After that was finished I painted Finley's dresser. It's an old one that I've used for over 10 years now. It's in great condition and other that being a bit on the small side, is perfect for her changing table.
Once the dresser was done and the walls were painted I finalized the layout of the room. I wanted a few defining spaces. Mainly because I still want to have our master bedroom. The next thing we did was build the crib. We went with the Gulliver crib from Ikea. It's supposed to be the smallest crib that still fits a standard mattress.
By this point we were about 30 weeks along.
So, here we are, at 35 weeks and this is as far as we've gotten. There is a ton left to do, but I'm feeling really good about how the space is developing.
With all of this being done I was able to cross a lot off of the Complete House To-Do List. It also added a whole slew of new things. But that's to be expected.
