A couple of weeks ago, Chris’ parents bought us a crib and Chris and I got a dresser that we will also use as a changing table. We had to wait for it to be shipped (which felt like a very long time), and we finally got to pick it up yesterday (which, by the way, was also our 5 year anniversary!!). My brother was nice enough to come over and help Chris assemble it, and they got it done in like 30 minutes! I was just thankful that I didn’t have to help… I stayed busy plopped on the couch watching the olympics. : ) I did, however, manage to get off my bum for a few minutes to take some pictures of them assembling.
For those interested, the above pictures were actually taken in our guest room, not the baby’s room. I also took some pictures (although not great pictures) of the completed projects.
My mom took a picture of Chris and me standing in the nursery (the very cluttered, not at all put together yet nursery) with our brand new furniture!
It’s kind of hard to tell from the pictures, but Chris painted the nursery a beautiful shade of green. It’s so soothing and exactly what I wanted… I was very, very pleased with the results!! Good job, Chris! I’ll post more pictures as the nursery comes together a little more, but wanted to get these first few ones out there for the world (well, the handful of you who read this) to see. Oh, and just so you don’t think that we are incorporating the red and orange hide-a-bed into our nursery decor, I’ll let you know that Matt will be taking that to his dorm room in about a week and a half. : )
