with the addition of a modern dollhouse, an easel, and lots of christmas goodies; we did some rearranging in clementine’s room. we added a bookshelf in her closet and moved her crib to make more space. it definitely opened the room up.

clementine loves her modern dollhouse! we saw it in a magazine ages ago, but it was quite pricey. we ended up finding it at our local consignment shop, jack and jill’s, and couldn’t resist. it’s now become a home for many of our old toys as well, ie. r2d2 and the homestar crew.

we finally got our flor tiles for the finishing touches on clementine’s nursery! the rug really ties the room together.

our good friend debbie also loaned us this folk art painting by mose tolliver. it was recently included in the “we are folk” exhibit at the hudgens center where gub works. it’s perfect for the nursery and clem really loves it!


we also added a mirror over clem’s changing table so she can look at herself when she’s getting her diaper changed. we took a vintage frame and had a piece of glass cut for it and hung it angled down a bit, so she can easily see herself! she LOVES it!!!

we are almost done with the nursery, as the baby could arrive anyday now… gub is 38 weeks along, so just two weeks away from our due date. we are adding some final touches to the nursery…

gub made some paper garland using red and white baker’s twine and two different sized circular die cutters. it turned out super cute! she might make more to hang from the wall shelves.

we also hung up some more artwork, including a little grouping near the file cabinet corner: one of our vintage paint by numbers, a lisa congdon collage and a few other fun pieces. we put up a couple of little gocco screen prints by matte stephens as well.

so… we ended up putting the crib back under the window where we had it in the very beginning. it leaves more open space in the center of the room, which we think will be better.

we also got a new hanging lamp for the corner over the file cabinet, which brightens the room quite a bit without having to use the overhead light.

we have reclaimed gub’s art supply storage cart (really a shop tool cart) and will be using it as a changing table. we had to find a smaller changing table pad than the standard size, but it seems like it will work well and we can store diapers below and supplies in the drawer.

the new arrival will be sleeping in our room for a while in this cradle that’s been in gub’s family for over 40 years. her great aunt joanie originally bought it for her cousins and gub and her brother both used it when they were babies. gub’s mom refurbished it a bit and we’ve got it all set-up and waiting….

we’ve been so busy being showered and transforming that we’re super late on our weekly nursery transformation post… sorry!

anyways, we are still playing around with room arrangement and haven’t settled for sure on having the crib in the middle of the room, but that’s where it is now. gub’s mom had this neato bedding made for us over at fingers & toes on etsy. we love it! she also got the baby these pink chucks… one of ryan’s favorite shower gifts so far!

we managed to make a few decisions as far as hanging artwork on the walls and we’re very close to selecting the rug. gub still has plans to make a mobile for over the crib. but we’re almost done… with four weeks until the due date!

we accomplished several things on our list this weekend… we finally made the roman shade for the nursery window as well as a cushioned seat cover for the built in bench. both were made from this cute fabric we purchased a while ago from whipstitch, an amazing fabric store here in town. we’ve included some step by step photos below. both projects turned out great!

we also received a rocking chair as a gift from gub’s mom this week, which resulted in re-arranging everything in the room once again. and we hung up a few pieces of artwork. slowly but surely, it’s coming together…

we finished installing our shelves and started filling them with the treasures we have collected and received as gifts. our friend kristen hosted an amazing baby shower for us this past weekend at her shop treehouse kid & craft in athens. she has the most beautiful things in her store and our friends and family showered us with lots of wonderful goodies for the baby!

we are playing around with placement of things in this tiny room and we’ve moved the crib so that it sits on a diagonal, coming out from the corner… can’t decide if we like it this way yet or not. we still have a rocking chair on the way that needs to fit in here as well.

next on the to do list:
select and purchase a rug
make a cover for the seat cushion
make the roman shade for the window
make a mobile for over the crib

we had big ambitions for this weekend, but things went a bit slower than we had hoped… it always seems to work that way.

anyway, we did manage to tackle the shelves. ryan installed them several years ago, but the paint on the brackets needed to be touched up and they hadn’t ever been sanded or finished. so, that’s what we worked on… here are some “in progress” shots. they are still drying, so installation shots are forthcoming.

we assembled the crib, bought a mattress, and found a fun curtain panel to go over the closet door. next on the list: 1. make the new roman shade out of this fun fabric we found at whipstitch, 2. find a new home for the sectional sofa, 3. select a paint color & paint…

so, part of the nursery transformation project included relocating ryan’s rather extensive record collection from the old media room to the living room. the old media room shelves now house my fabric and we got a new ikea shelf for the records…

it’s musical chairs around here! we’ve included some “before” photos of the living room and will post updates on our progress.
