So even though there is around 5.5 months to go before we get to meet our little bub, tonight I started contemplating the nursery. Up until recently, the room has been a second spare room/musical instrument storage/ junk room. Right now there is barely any floor available to walk on. Hard to imagine it will one day accommodate a little person.
We are about 3 weeks away from our next scan, which will hopefully tell us whether to expect a baby boy or girl. Up until recently I never would have dreamed of finding out, but my husband wanted to and thinking it through, it seems like a good idea for the first one at least, so you can at least plan everything to suit. So we will be finding out.
And that leaves us with what could potentially be a problem. The room we plan to use as the nursery has previously been a nursery... to a boy. It has two tone blue and white walls with a wooden panel around the middle. It looks great... but it is hard to imagine a blue nursery and a baby girl.
Here is the current nursery situation (don't judge me... lol). The photos are a bit dodgy as I took them at night without natural light:
Of course the first step will be to empty the room and dispose of everything that is not needed and store the rest elsewhere. Plenty to keep me busy if I didn't have to work... But in relation to the blue nursery and potential daughter, I needed some inspiration. So tonight I went to my favourite place for inspiration... Pinterest.
Here are some awesome nursery ideas:
Plenty of inspiration that works for both boys and girls. And I think we have decided to go with dark stain nursery furniture now too like in the photos with the two tone rooms, since I now realise the white cot and dresser would kind of disappear against the white wall at the bottom if we did that. But it's not too late to change my mind on that. But a wall decal and a splash on pink will certainly transform our blue nursery into a room fit for a princess if need be. Although I kinda want to add a chandelear now.. not that I can spell the word haha It'll be the fanciest room in the house come December perhaps!
What do you think?
Anyway, wish me luck. There is a big job ahead of me getting the nursery from the mess at the start to something stylish and functional. Stay tuned for updates :)
