Remember my beloved pink office?
This soon to be momma of two found herself needing a playroom of sorts on the main floor of the house, and a transitional nursery so that I don't have to brave the stairs with a newborn baby after a c section. I was secretly also wanting to add some blue and kinda sick of the pink.
The bookshelves remain the same and I bought a second set of the drapery panels that are hung inside of the french doors to help block the light when I have baby M in the mini crib.
I decided to go with Behr Light French Gray for the paint. I have touches of blue and gray through out the main floor of our home and it just made sense. I also found some really sweet mini crib bedding to add to the room too.
Here is a peek into the new space. It now houses the striped linen sofa, a glider, a changing table and some shelves with a few of K's toys. She likes to play with her dollhouse in this room (she calls it a 'dog'house which really gets us some funny looks).
This is the not so stylish but OH SO COMFORTABLE glider we bought to put in our room when K was born. It has been in hiding since then but we brought it back out for baby M. I mean, who DOESN'T want to crawl up in a big chair of minky dot? Ha. It is a glider and also a recliner too. Perfect for late nights with baby.
While this is not baby M's nursery, I decided to buy a portable mini crib with a real mattress and bedding so that this room will make a great transitional nursery. I love the fact that it folds up flat and is on wheels! Braving this staircase after a c section and carrying a newborn didn't feel very appealing. K's room is on the main floor as well, so we will just keep our new little family of four downstairs with us for awhile, until we decide to move both of the girls upstairs. I'm not ready for that yet =)
The bunny toile portable crib bedding came from Carousel Designs and they have an amazing collection of crib bedding in general!
Now, I must stock up on diapers! Eeek!
