Renovated Baby Room

After a very long hiatus, I’m back! A lot has happened over the last year, but the biggest change for my husband and me is our 8 month old. We have a daughter! And she is such a blast. And a handful. So, between adjusting to parenthood and a lot of other life events, I’ve let this blog fall by the wayside. Let’s see if I can fix that.

In order to accommodate this new little life, we had to make some space changes in our home. My husband handled most of these tasks, which ended up being no small feat given all the tiny nooks that needed to be rid of decades worth of old paint in what was a former breezeway closet.

After the laborious part came the colorful part. He slapped on light coats of pink paint and green stain and then had fun bringing in some estate sale finds to give it character, like some vintage green glass knobs and a great lampshade, which fit perfectly over the changing table.

Then we hung up some vintage pictures and made room for some old stuffed animals, including some of my creepy dolls (maybe that already makes me a bad parent, but I’m hoping she won’t mind them!).

The room is tiny, but lovely, and it’s functional. I’m hoping she has many sweet dreams in it. And now I am going to spend a little time catching up on some other blogs to see what I’ve missed over the last several year. It’s good to be back.
