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.
As you all know by now, I am a huge fan of wallpaper. If I could, I would have some in every room of this house. Right now, we have wallpaper in Dax’s nursery, Eli’s room, and the laundry room. I eventually want to have some in our half-bath when we redo that, and potentially the kids’ playroom- but we would wait until we used it as a office. I really wanted to put some in Dax’s big boy room, but even though we are moving him out of his black and white nursery, we are sticking with that color scheme in the new room too. Well, it will be more of a white room with accents of black. That being said, I thought it would be too much to have two black and white rooms- actually three if you count the boys’ newly renovated bathroom. So, we decided to not use wallpaper this time around, and to do a cool accent wall of moldings instead.
Fortunately, moldings are much cheaper than wallpaper, and a lot easier to install. So far they are looking really good, and I can start to see the room coming together. I am in my third trimester now, so we are on a strict time crunch to get this room ready. I want Dax moved in and settled long before the baby arrives. I don’t want him feeling like we are kicking him out of is nursery to make room for the baby, even though that is totally what is happening, let’s be real!
Once the moldings are sanded and perfect, we can paint!
