My little man!
When we bought our house the entire front of the house on the second floor was one large long bedroom. Originally it was two bedrooms and we reverted it back to a similar floor plan by creating one smaller room, Harrison's current nursery. The other half has become a landing with a much needed linen closet. If you have an old house you will know that storage is always limited. The landing is still a work in progress so stay tuned on that.
Here is a little look back…before:
The men at work in a plume of dust!
When the dust cleared
The bin didn't arrive the first day so everything ended up of my front lawn.
One of the reasons we demolished the space all the way back to the studs is so that we could insulate the walls and make this room cozy for our little one.
Getting drywall up makes everything better!
The closets in the right place.
The floors - original fir floors were in terrible terrible shape. Covered in years of grime, paint and nail holes. I'm thrilled with how they turned out.
They were in terrible shape that said they are a 100 year old floors.
The space was an exercise in save and splurge. I knew a few key pieces that I wanted to spend on: custom rocker and ottoman, custom drapes and a beautiful rug. Which meant I needed to save on: the lamps, crib and storage.
I love my nursery but I next time I am 8 months pregnant I don't think I will embark on such a massive reno on such a tight timeline…Oh who am I kidding of course I will!
Here it is!!
I love, love, love my glider. It is from Silva 4 home who does all of my custom furniture. You can alter any piece with your choice of fabric. It is so comfortable, trust me I fall asleep in it a lot!
I was 9 months pregnant, standing on a ladder with a level and a measuring tape determined to get these amazing decals from Urban Walls up. I was determined to get it done before Harrison arrived.
I fell in love with this antique rattle on one of our buying trips to England and framed it in an Ikea shadow box. Here is how I did it. The beautiful silver plate was made for me by the amazing Justine Ma when I announced I was pregnant. The sideboard is another England purchase that I had lacquered. Love it!
The storage is from Ikea, the prints are from Yellow Bungalow, Justine Ma and Gingiber
I love that Harrison's library is filled with books from my childhood!
I agonized over which one of Sharon Montrose's prints. They are all so darn cute!
Little Ella snuck into a shot, do you spy the Petite Pehr bin, swaddles and sheets from my store?
I'm thrilled with the finished product, I spend hours in this room and it was important that I had a space that was comfortable for myself, my hubby and my little man. Now on to the next room!
