Eleanor’s nursery preview

3 months till Eleanor is here in my arms!

*insert mild freak out*

I won’t freak too much because we got her room painted!!!!!

Now to just get some furniture in there and we will be set. :) 

I wanted to share a little peak at what we are doing with E’s nursery…..

Husband painted the walls in our choice of blue and then we got the focal wall ready for stripes!  I even helped him!!!!

Can I just say….preparing a wall for stripes is no easy task!  I told Mr. Tim I would never want to stripe an entire room, unless it was a small bathroom or something.  You would have to have incredible patience.  Or maybe it’s just because I’m pregnant and slightly fussy at this time.  It didn’t seem to bother Mr. Tim.  So I guess it’s just me! ha!

Annnnnnnd Voila!!!!

We are sooooo happy with how it turned out!  I wasn’t sure at first how I was going to like it.  Husband kept reassuring me that if I hated it….it was no big deal to paint over the stripes.  Bless his heart!

I’m glad I loved it, cause that would have been a lot of work down the drain! 

Also…..I need to make it known that my hubby is the bomb.com when it comes to painting!  Or just projects in general.

And for those interested…..

Here is a little sneaky peak at where we are going with our nursery theme.

I fell in love with this quilt from Pottery Barn and so did husband! 

We felt ok with splurging on one item that we LOVE LOVE!  And we are do-it yourself kind of people…so we plan on trying to recreate a Pottery Barn look on a Target budget! 

I’m so jazzed about it!  We just keep going in her room and sitting….even though there is nothing in it.  It just makes us happy.

And just for fun….here is Eleanor at 25 weeks (last week)! 

Note:  picture taken in her room! yippee!

Also note:  I’m almost into the 3rd trimester!!!!!!!!  eeeek! 

Hugs!
