Nursery Reveal

I will soon have a progress post of our work on the master bedroom remodel to share with you all - it's slowly but surely coming along (baby steps ;o). Although we are making remarkable strides lately and my father (and Bryan) swears it will be done by the time Owen arrives, I am not holding my breath. I am sure that it will be done soon, but probably not within the next month.

Luckily - as I've reported in previous posts - we have gotten most of the work done in the nursery (which is still currently acting as our bedroom until the remodel is finished). I am so glad that we did get so much done, especially now that is looks as though the remodel may be taking longer than originally planned... I cannot imagine painting and finishing a nursery this pregnant or with a newborn.

I've given you guys some "sneak peeks" of the nursery progress and even shared our original design plans with you... although we're not quite ready for an official reveal just yet, I'm also not sure when we will ever be. So in the mean time I did want to share some pictures with you guys :o)

Note: please excuse the tight angled shots and our bed poking into some of them - unfortunately our bed does take up a majority of the room and so it's difficult to get good pictures with such a complicated setup.

 The quote plaque hung on his nursery door.
It's from Winnie the Pooh, and it reads:
"sometimes the smallest things, take up the most room in your heart"

 The piece de resistance - the accent wall - LoVe how this turned out!
Also seen on the left is the changing table with Winnie the Pooh art prints hung over top.

 A better shot of the Winnie the Pooh art prints, hung over the changing table.

Below are some shots of his full drawers in the changing table...
First aid and grooming kits, diapers and wipes.

Organizer with socks, booties, binkies, hats and mittens, swaddle and receiving blankets.

Hooded bath towels, washcloths, burpies and bibs.

The other side of the room...
  Dresser with his name hung above and glider with paper lanterns hung above.
(the dresser is currently housing our clothes lol but all of Owen's pants, various other layette
and bigger sized clothes will eventually go in there instead

 And of course the infamous baby closet!
(you can see all of his pants, various other layette and bigger sized clothes
sitting on top of the shelves, waiting for their space in the dresser lol

There are obviously a lot of things still missing from this nursery (most obviously the crib lol), most of which are currently being housed in our other spare bedroom slash home office. But they are all larger items (pack 'n play, bassinet, bouncer, jumperoo, swing, stroller(s), etc.) that really have no place else to go until our remodel is complete. So there they will sit, until that day comes (hopefully very soon ;o).
