Nesting...

Lately I've been experiencing the UNCONTROLLABLE urge to clean everything in our home! I think I'm driving Anthon crazy with my constant pleas to go through all our junk & DONATE most of it! It's been really enjoyable for me though; I've felt like I've had very productive days : ). On top of the cleaning urges, I've been bitten by the decorating bug! My main project, as you can probably guess, has been the baby's room. Anthon has been very gracious in helping me with all of it... I COULDN'T have done it without him!! Although we're not 100% finished, here are some pictures of our progress:
This bedding was my inspiration for the colors we used in the room. The mobile isn't actually part of the original bedding set, but I think it goes good enough :).

We decided to put in a guest bed so visitors will have some place to sleep (getting excited Gwen??). A HUGE thanks goes to Michele for all your help with the vinyl... you're a life saver!

We obviously need to finish the wall above the crib- that's probably where we'll hang his name... IF WE CAN EVER AGREE ON ONE : )!


*In other exciting news, Anthon & I finally broke down & upgraded to a king size bed!! After 3 1/2 years of being married & being cramped in a queen, these last few months have been HORRIBLE for me- I just could NOT get comfortable, & in the rare occasions that I would, I would get woken up by snoring, just him moving, or a nice, swift elbow to the forehead. The most exciting part about it is how good of a deal we got!! I've had the bedding since last summer (tells you how long I've been BEGGING for a bigger bed) but the bed frame (which is SOLID wood) was only $100 & the mattress is a Serta dual top memory foam was only $150 BRAND NEW (thank you CraigsList!!). So in the 2 nights since we got it I've slept better than I have in the past 2 months!!

Don't worry, the wall isn't going to stay purple... that's my next project :)

I LOVE it all! I'll admit I have been doing some blog-stalking waiting for you to put up pictures. The mobile looks perfect with the bedding, love the chair rail and stripes! Your bedding is awesome and you have motivated me to do some searching on craigslist, I am dying for a new mattress.

Hey, it looks like things are coming along good. Wait till the real nesting comes along. You are still in the early stages. It only gets worse. The bedroom looks really good. You did a good job.

I love the babies room! I am currently painting Sydney's room. I should have asked you for some advice. Maybe you can help me decorate it.
