The Nursery Switch: Part I

2.06.2013

Now that I'm almost 24 weeks pregnant (the time is flying!!), its time to be thinking about the little guy's nursery. (And who's kidding, that's really the fun stuff anyways!)

Our plan is to move Maura down the hall to what is currently the "office" and convert it into her big girl room. We will then keep the "nursery" where it is now, but change it over from her room, to a space more suited to a boy.

If you've been following along for awhile, you might remember that I wrote on this exact topic over a year ago as a guest post on Honey & Fitz...so a lot of this might sound familiar.  But I wanted to recap here again for my own sake and anyone else who really wants to follow along with the whole process or might be in similiar situation:)

Fortunately, all of the furniture and the paint color (a blue called "Heaven on Earth" by BM) can remain the same. Here's a list of what is staying:
  • the floor plan/layout
  • the paint color
  • the crib
  • the dresser/changing pad
  • the frames above the dresser
  • the glider
  • the ledge shelves
  • the bookshelf
Then I need to replace the more girly things (like the drapes, art, bedding) with more manly items. So we'll need:
  • new bedding
  • new rug
  • new window treatments
  • new art in frames
  • new stuff on shelves
  • new art above crib
  • new lamp
  • new Pottery Barn critter chair 
Here, this might help:

 


I've already purchased a bunch of the new stuff and scrounged around the house for a bit more, so I'll share that next in subsequent posts. It is getting so exciting and more real to think that in a few months we will be a family of four:)

  7. Sounds so fun! I did the same thing when I changed our nursery from girl to boy - the walls are light green and the furniture is a light maple, so I just switched all the pink accessories to blue and green. Have fun decorating, and congrats! :)
