It’s all finished! Now we are just patiently waiting for her arrival. I’ve never had so much fun decorating a room before and we love how it turned out!
Here is the room when we bought the house…safari wallpaper and all.
Then, for the past few years, it’s been a pretty boring guest room.
Most of the rooms in our house have popcorn ceiling which we are trying to remove little by little. It’s a ton of work and creates a big mess but makes a huge difference when it’s gone. My husband made the mistake of showing me how good he is at taking it down! So, with our baby’s room, after removing the dated ceiling fan, that’s where “we” started.
After he scraped the popcorn, mudded and sanded the ceiling, he rolled it white and put up a new, modern ceiling fan from Lowes.
Then it was time to paint! We decided on Functional Grey by Sherwin Williams.
Next, the new floors went in.
I didn’t want to go overboard but decided to do a subtle “travel” theme. I also wanted to keep the colors simple and allow the room to be one she can grow into. The crib is Babyletto by Hudson, the chair from Lazyboy, the end table from Target (we spray painted it black), the dresser is a repurposed Craigslist find, the map from Etsy and the white lacquered shelf and city prints are from IKEA.
We hope you like it! Just waiting on our new inhabitant, can’t wait!
