There is one room in our house that has not gotten much love on the blog. We affectionately referred to it as the junk room. Here is what we started with when we moved in:
And in all the junk room glory:
furniture that needs to be refinished? check
random light fixtures? check
painting supplies? check
bags of clothes that need to go to goodwill? check
honey oak? of course
popcorn ceilings? duh
So we thought it needed a to be cleaned out….not to mention a facelift. The junk room has served it’s purpose of holding stuff and a cabinet painting location but it is time to move on.
Because we happy to finally share that we are expecting Baby #1 in July!
Many of you probably guessed by my long unexplained absence, and honestly the first trimester kicked my butt. I have never been so sick and tired for so long. I titled this holiday season the “Christmas of Lowered Expectations.” Christmas card? Nope. Cookies? Nope. Decorating the house? I watched Derek do a great job while I sat on the couch. And it all turned out OK even though it was hard to give up control and let things go. And while I am still not 100%, at least I am functioning again.
Anyway….plans for the nursery. We have already started construction and I can’t wait to share pics on Monday. Think orange and aqua and window seats. And no more popcorn ceiling. And of course no more junk.
