Baby Pidg’s Nursery | Jen Araya Photography

It’s time to share Baby Pidg’s Nursery now that it is complete.  It was a LOT of work but totally worth it.  Before, the room was a guest bedroom, office and collector of all of our stuff that we didn’t have a place for.  We started this project probably back in November.  We went  through everything in the room, either donating or getting rid of stuff.  Sean has always wanted to move the desk/office to the finished basement which meant we needed to go through the basement as well.  With Baby on the way, we had to get this project completed.  So this one room project turned into a WHOLE HOUSE project.  In the end I’m so happy with what we accomplished.  It felt so good to purge and organize!  It helped that we could get this done in the winter and not miss out on good weather weekends.  I didn’t take a photo before we started but did photograph the transformation of baby’s room. 

We took a trip to Pottery Barn Kids the day after Christmas and purchased of all the furniture for the room.  We knew the rocking chair was going to be a bit longer but got the furniture in early February.  The rocking chair has been a nightmare but we got through it.  We protected everything and started painting the room, baseboard and trim around the windows.  It’s amazing what a coat of paint can do to a room.  As I mentioned before because it was winter, it was  the perfect time to work on this project.  Sean and I did it together.  After the fresh coat of paint we decided to replace the old looking electrical plugs.  Again, changing a small detail like that changes the whole room.  Before I forget, don’t pay attention to the rug.  Not our ideal color but we’ll make  it work for now. 

A couple funny moments, we bought the whale wall decor 2+ years ago but never found the right place for it, until now.  Same thing with the nightstand lamp and wall box too.  Glad we can finally find a nice home for it and it works perfectly and matches the decor of the nursery.  This was a labor of  love and I’m excited that we finished it a week before our due date.  I wasn’t stressing about it but it’s just nice to know we are organized for when Baby comes home!  Enjoy!
