Today Chris and I turned in our intent to vacate our apartment on July 18. Sixty days from now, we will be in a house… somewhere. 🙂 I spent a couple of hours house-hunting online today and finally found a few options that I think might work.
When we move into a house, we’ll start buying nursery stuff and setting up for the baby. We’ve known that from the beginning, so I haven’t allowed myself to get too excited. Even if I found something to buy right now, I would have nowhere to store it. BUT, we find out the gender on Friday morning, so it’s time to start getting our plans together.
I found this blog last summer, and I absolutely love it. Her nursery design is my absolute favorite of all the ones I have seen so far. (You can see more pictures of the nursery in Megan’s Flickr photostream.) Our friends Kevin and Holly are giving us their white crib, so I hope to incorporate some of the great ideas here in our own nursery. For one, I love the shelving and dresser set up, and I plan to do something similar with furniture from IKEA. Chris loves the big fluffy white rug, so we’ll probably get a similar wool one from IKEA, too.
I also love that Megan re-covered a chair for the nursery. I am really not a fan of gliders or wooden rocking chairs, so I’ve been on the look out for an old man chair at second hand stores that I can reupholster (or pay to have reupholstered) to match our nursery decor.
I discovered Smiley Walls on Etsy just yesterday, and I love the idea of vinyl that we can apply and take down when we move. Since we have decided to hold off on buying a house in Nashville for a while (if at all), our decorations need to be easy to apply and remove, without damaging the walls.
Sooo… what’s your wager? Do you think we’re having a boy or a girl? Less than 48 hours until we find out!
