New Digs

It's about that time to start talking about one of my favorite topics...decorating!

We are in the process of cleaning out every corner, nook and cranny in our house to get ready for "The Great Swap Out" (I kind of feel like I am living in a real-life episode of Hoarders, Burried Alive at the moment)!  I looooove being creative and creating spaces (especially for the little ones) that are fun, colorful and most importantly functional.

Everett's Toddler Room Transition:

I have had so much fun not only planning the new nursery (more on that in a few days) but also getting ready for Everett's transition into a full blown toddler room.  It was important to me when creating his original nursery to plan ahead so that the colors and style would grow with him.  I am not a real "theme-y" designer, but like to focus more on form and function with a little fun mixed in.

If you don't remember what Everett's room looks like currently here are a few before pictures.  You can also read the nursery planning posts below:

In order to maximize the things that we do already have, here are a few things that are happening during "The Great Swap Out"

Going to the new nursery:

  • Crib
  • Changing table/dresser
  • White Round Mirror
  • Ikea Chair (recovered)

Staying in room:

  • Tree Bookshelf
  • Frames/Artwork
  • Hamper
  • Lamp
  • Painted stripes on wall
  • Floor Pillows
  • Curtains (which are actually "new" to the nursery...I swapped them for our family room curtains and they look great!)

Adding to Everett's Room:

  • Full Size Bed Frame
  • 8 Drawer Dresser
  • New Bedding; sheets, duvet
  • New above bed artwork with sconces

I am so excited to get the room re-do underway. I.literally.can't.wait.  Our goal is to have his new "big boy" bed in place in about 2 weeks so that he has plenty of time to disassociate with his old crib as it becomes "baby sister's".  

Below is a closer look at all of our new finds-
