You guys will never believe this, but…David finished Dax’s new room by the deadline I gave him! Woohoo! Best miracle ever!
Once the paint was finished, we we started moving Dax’s things into his new room. We are keeping all of his furniture the same until he is ready for a big boy bed, which hopefully isn’t for a long time. I love how the white paint looks with the black, gold, and green accents. It is a perfect room for our wild boy and definitely one that he will be able to grow into. It is so hard to believe that it used to be dark wood, and blue, and now it is light, airy, and bright.
The room is a lot smaller than we anticipated, so it is a good thing we decided to make this Dax’s big boy room instead of the new nursery. There is no way the glider would have fit in here, so it couldn’t have worked out better.
We are still waiting on the closet doors and closet door hardware to arrive as well as a mirror for above Dax’s dresser. Since the room is 98%, it’s time to get that nursery competed as best as we can so we can feel fully prepared for the baby.
I never thought I would be writing this, but our mudroom is complete. I repeat, the mudroom is complete. I gave David a strict deadline, and he got it done. Ok, two days later than the deadline, but baby steps right? It looks beautiful and I love it, but I do think it would have been worth a few thousand dollars to have hired it out so that it would have been done months ago. Oh well.
He basically built everything from scratch and it’s so nice knowing there is a place for muddy and wet shoes and coats now. I also feel confident that we will have a designated place for keys, especially for David’s since he is always losing his.
The cabinets were a great addition since we have so much random stuff in the garage that would go better in here. The sink will be great to rinse off after playing outside.
Now that the functional stuff is done, we get to decorate! The wall behind the sink needs something, as does the blank wall between the bench and the cabinets. I am thinking a mirror will make the room look bigger, but I have to play with different ideas.
Next up, the planning center! Yep, David had a deadline for that too, and it’s complete as well!
