There's many things that are going into our nursery, like a crib and of course daddy has to put it together! This crib is from IKEA, called Gulliver and the mattress is from IKEA, also. The combo was only $139! Totally affordable!
I found a couple other items at IKEA and some from Facebook Marketplace (like Craigslist, but on Facebook).
With Peanut on the way in a couple months, and the master bedroom finally painted and us moved in there, we are ready to start the nursery!
When we first bought our house (nearly two years ago), we decided that we were going to get ourselves a queen sized bed, so there was no point in putting our full sized bed in the master bedroom. Fast forward a couple years, we got a queen bed and it didn't agree with my back, so we returned it. We have been living in the middle bedroom in our full sized bed for the majority of the time.
Here's the middle room, the purple room, from after we cleaned it out. It's not the largest room, but it fit our full sized bed, two end tables, a wing chair and our laundry hamper, plus room for the dogs to sleep at the foot of the bed.
This is our master bedroom the first morning after closing on our first house. We threw our air mattress, some sheets, a blanket, and pillows in our rig before going in to sign all the paperwork. And on the way from Portland to Salem, I was on the phone with the garbage, electricity, natural gas, and water companies to get everything switched into our names.
And now, after nearly two years, we finally get to paint the room and really make it ours!
