Project Nursery: Completed with Pictures!!
Monday was the official day that I turned 36 weeks and with my due date on July 1st, I spent last night reflecting back on my journey (yes for all of you who have not had any children yet, pregnancy is actually 40 weeks, don’t ask). I was amazed that just back in February I kicked off my first post about starting Project Nursery and now after many hours of planning, painting, organizing, and sticking up some seriously challenging decals it is finally complete! We are so excited with the way it turned out and cant wait to show it to our newest tiny roommate when he gets out!
I was very pleased that we were able to stick to our guns and save as much money as possible by repurposing old furniture to work in the new space. I am now confident that anytime a large furniture purchase presents itself in the future I will be able to reuse quality consignment furniture and give it a new life. In the case where we could not reuse furniture, such as the crib because of new regulations and possible recalls, we supported great brands like, Young America, who make all their furniture right here in Robbinsville, USA. We were also able to, with the help of our wonderful and very generous family and friends, go very eco-friendly with all types of organic clothing, bedding, and carriers. With a bit of extra pre-planning and a little hard labor we were able to achieve the nursery of our, or I should say his, dreams in the sustainable guidelines that we strived for!
