Baby Room is almost done!

We are now less then a month until our new little addition makes his appearance and we're getting close to having the nursery as ready as it can be.

We're hoping to find a fun area rug to bring some much needed colour to the floor.


We still have to hang the artwork and find some small shelves. The dresser will double as a change table once we get the change pad attached to the top.


Stacey came up with the idea of the Z's above the crib. We're hoping it has a sleepy affect on him so Mom and Dad can get some sleep as well. :)


I'm particularly proud of the dresser. It took many hours of hard work, but we love how it looks in the room.


Below is the before photo of the dresser. (Taken with my ipod, sorry for the crappy quality photo)
I picked this baby up for $25 at a local thrift shop and could see the potential. After sanding it down, some paint, stain and a coat of poly... we ended up with a nice modern piece that will hopefully last him well into his teens!!


I will post more shots when we get everything completed and in place. But I couldn't resist sharing our progress so far. We are both getting very excited (and nervous) to meet the little guy. We hope he loves his room.
