Alright, I gave you a sneak peek earlier but I have given our bedroom a face lift and haven’t shown it in awhile. I also haven’t done it as a complete before and after to show you how far it has really come.
I have fallen into the navy craze along with a lot of the blog world, and thought the bedroom would be a great place to pull it in. It’s brought a little bit more of a masculine feel to our room which does the hubby a “little” more justice:) He has to put up with a lot after all;)
So, here’s a before picture of our bedroom…
We had added the row of closets on the right and took out the master closet they had on the other side of the room. The little window you see on the before is now between our clothes closet and the laundry closet. It’s in an awkward spot but is nice to have some natural light in the closets! We also raised the ceilings an additional 3 feet to bring some height to the room, especially since it was just wasted attic space above.
We also moved the mini door over after we added the closests and made it a full size door so we didn’t have to duck every time we went in:) You can see above the right corner is a big box that used to be their master closet, now it’s our baby corner!!
We also opened up a dormer that was that just for aesthetic purposes. We put in a new window and it brought in so much more light to the room since there were only two small windows in the room to start with.
I created a canopy by taking a hoop ring for embroidery and sewing on two curtain panels from Ikea. I actually cut one panel in half since I didn’t need it quite so thick, and mostly because I only had one and I didn’t want to buy another set:)
I also got this super cute butterfly mobile from my sister. She made it for Whimsy and praise the Lord it didn’t sell cause I didn’t realize how perfect it would be in this space!
Yeah, you heard me..she made it ya’ll!
She used old book pages, antiqued them, and hung them from a thin wire to a hoop.
And when I told her I think I needed to buy it…she said it was her gift to peanut:):)
This corner is still going to get a mini dresser or something for storage and a bit of decor on the walls, but for now I’m ready for baby:)
And heres a long shot of the rocker.
with my stump table that cost me $16 because of the legs I bought at Ikea.
and if I didn’t love the antlers enough I decided to showcase them a bit more:)
Now it’s a work of art….good job babe!
View from the bathroom.
I’ll keep you posted on any new baby updates! Here’s the latest instagram I posted at 34 weeks preggers.
I can’t believe we are only 5 weeks out now…and if peanut is anything like Tate or Kynlee hopefully he/she comes a week or two early!:)
My cravings lately are for ice water!! WITH……essential oils Citrus fresh
Seriously, for a girl that doesn’t usually like water I just can’t get enough. I put 2 drops in my cup and I love love love it. I crave it even more than cherry coke, which for those of you who know me know that’s a big deal:) And it’s supposed to cleanse you and give you clarity of thought…not sure if the clarity of thought is working with preggo brain, but nonetheless, I love it:)
