At 34 weeks I am looking very pregnant folks! Here is a picture of the baby belly with Noah at the farmstead yesterday.
And one more picture of us on a hayride and what I just realized is one of our last outings as the THREE of us.
The last couple months have flown by and we find ourselves just weeks away from meeting our new baby. While we are filled with anticipation and excitement there is still some work to do before baby’s arrival. I have been slow to put together a nursery plan because I have been trying to utilize current furniture pieces and accessories from our house to minimize cost. After some rearranging and space planning, there are a few key pieces from our home we can use:
1. Everett Leather Chair from West Elm
This chair has been in our living room since my parents purchased it for Christmas for us last year. It is super comfy and has an ottoman so we figured it would be the perfect spot to curl up with the baby.
2. The pendant light from our old dining room
Our first run at the dining room included a white pendant from lampsplus. It has been sitting in our basement since we redid the dining room this Fall and is much more exciting than the standard flush mount currently in the room.
3. The Mid Century Modern buffet that I bought at a thrift store and painted white a couple years ago
This piece has been moved around the house and was most recently in the guest room. It will add some much-needed storage and double as the changing table.
So with these pieces, and the mini crib I purchased last month, here is the plan I came up with for the nursery.
I kept it pretty basic with a few fun elements and left some room for customization when we know if it’s a girl or boy and the name. Work is already well underway so stay tuned for the reveal in just a couple weeks!
