I had been waiting so long for hubby to give me the nod to finally start picking colours and shopping for baby’s room. He is the type that likes to wait til the right time to do things, and I am impatient and pretty much wanted to do the room the moment I found out I was pregnant. After both picking two colours we liked and painting a swatch of each, we settled on ‘Dusty sky’ which is a delightful blue (my choice of course). We had help from Stu’s parents to paint the room and I was amazed at the difference a change of colour can have on a room.
Below is a picture of my in-laws helping Stu with the painting. Stu is concentrating very hard…you can tell by his signature tongue movements.
All finished painting, ready for furniture…
I hand made the bunting, dresser and rug are from Ikea, chair and stool from Baby Bunting, side table from Adairs, curtains from Spotlight, fan and curtain rod from Bunnings…
Cot and change table second hand from Ebay, handmade teething bumper to match bunting…
Love sign from Kmart.
Our bathroom renovation took ages! But it is finally finished and I love it so much. I loved the day I got to finally move in to it. Arranging my makeup and beauty things was like heaven after having to share a tiny ensuite with hubby for the last few months. I am so proud of all the work that hubby did with the help of his dad.
I look forward to the day I can bath my kiddies in the bath and have romantic long hot showers with hubby. I am one lucky girl.
All that’s left to do it go shopping for some snazzy towels and toilet paper holders and all that fun stuff!
Are you or your hubby handy? Or would you like a project to get started?
My hubby Stuart saw something similar on Pinterest and thought he should have a go. They are super easy to make once you have all the materials and can be used for herbs, flowers…whatever!
Also a great idea for birthday and Christmas presents. We gave the one above to my sister and her fiancé for their engagement and they said it was the best present they recieved!
I will get Stu to help me explain the process and what materials you will need. But for now, just go to your local hardware store and ask them if they have any old palettes they are throwing out. We got about 5-6 for FREE which means the cost of making them is super low. Just a few nails, some plastic lining and some varnish for the wood.
