Nursery Beginnings

Okay, so we are beginning to tackle the GIANT feat of getting a room ready for the rapidly approaching arrival of our child. This picture, above, is of a rocking chair that Sean's grandma gave us. It was very old, but I was kind of sentimental about it because it came from her. Whitney and I sanded it, and she stained it a chery wood color to match our crib. Isn't it BEAUTIFUL? And this is only after the first coat of stain. It looks insanely beautiful now, I can't wait to get it set up in the nursery and post some pics of it. We also painted the nursery yesterday, and it looks amazing.

Here is a pic of the nursery wall. There will be brown polka dots around the middle to cover the line. It's going to be super cute, we already did some of them, but for some reason I don't have a pic of that.


Another of the chair



My mom painted a cheap dresser that we bought brown, and she has since painted green polka dots on it and a bookshelf that matches the greens on the wall. They are precious, and Mom did an excellent job.


This is what the rocking chair looked like before she stained it.



This is the nursery bedding. Yes, I swaddled a teddy bear to see what it would look like.




Sean and I put this swing together by ourselves. We got it at a shower from some sweet friends, and it is so cute! I must say, I am not a huge fan of assembly directions, especially when they expect that you will automatically understand what the crap is going on in those pictures. It's ridiculous.
So I am getting very excited about this project, and about little Baby Campbell getting here. I am also really excited about the fact that Sean has started PA school! He is loving it, even though he is really busy all the time studying. But he is going to be an amazing PA, and I am so proud of him! I know little Levi will be proud of him too!
Okay, I'm out.
