Sweatshop to Nursery

Whoa, apparently blogger completely changed it's MO since I last posted. There's a new look on the dashboard. Yikes.


I am more than halfway done with this whole pregnancy gig, so it occurred to us we really needed to get cracking on cleaning that puppy out. A few weeks ago I took some "before" pics, which really just means, holy crap look at how messy this room is.

Yikes. Can we say "dumping ground?"

Seriously, this is shameful.
I can't even begin to wonder what all the junk in this closet is.
And it goes up really high on the sides, look, there's an XBox in there. No, it's not just an empty box, there's actually an XBox in there. (It's broken, but it's in there.)
I cry in shame. I swear it.

But, we've made some serious progress. I spent an hour on Sunday cleaning this bad boy out, and now it's all sparkly and ready for some decorating.
 Now, we may even get the crib set up this afternoon before N heads out to his weekly curling league. (Oh yeah, curling, we rock it hardcore here in St. Paul.)
The original plan was to sell the mirror on Craigslist, but I've posted it a couple times, cheap, and haven't gotten any bites, so once we pick up the dresser, if it matches, I'll likely use it in the nursery. If it doesn't, it's going in the trash weekend at my mom's next weekend. I love trash clean out weekend. (Does anyone know what I'm talking about?)

So there. We are getting stuff done in the nursery. We're just taking our time. 


  1. I really love the wall color in that room. Would you happen to know what color it is, exactly? I've been wanting something like that for our "nursery", which is also currently our "pile junk in here until we know what to do with it" room. If I lived where you are, I'd take the mirror!

  2. Hey BV, it's Behr's Cool Jazz. I love it, it's super bright and light and it's neutral.
