Getting the room ready

The room we have for our babe is a pile of trash right now. The walls are mustard yellow, and it is full of mismatched, hand-me-down furniture, boxes of junk that should be in the attic, and papers, papers and more papers.

We have our work cut out for us to get it ready and pleasant, but since Jeff is home this week, I don't have to tackle it by myself. He's much better at these kinds of organizing projects anyway.

I would post a "before" picture, but it is such a mess right now I'm kind of embarrassed. So there will be a before picture taken, and it will be revealed when we have a great "after" shot to post right after it.
For now, I'll share this picture of the fabric I found for new crib bedding. The bedding we've had for the other boys is covered with teddy bears and after almost 6 years I am sick of looking at it. I don't know why I chose it in the first place. I hate teddy bears.

There is much to be done, but I am looking forward to the "final reveal". Didn't you know you were watching an episode of some decorating show on HGTV? Stay tuned. . .

I love that printed fabric. Great design and I love the shade of blue. Can't wait for the "final reveal!"

Cute fabric, it's going to look great! I need to start thinking about the same thing, only in girl colors.

Hey, I'll be in Eugene in a couple of weeks. I don't know if I'll go to church, but would love to see you! Let me know if you'll be up for it, the week after Easter!

I'm so excited! There's nothing I love more than a remodel with before and after pictures. I can't wait! Plus, it might give me inspiration for getting my own little baby's room ready. I'm needing some inspiration...

Aw, RIP Blue Jean Teddy.

You know how much I love befores and afters.

Aren't we so happy that there is actually stylish fabrics out there now? It was so liberating to have Laura's room decorated in cute contemporary prints instead of more pastels and butterflies.
