Our Baby Nursery

As I promised, I am finally posting pictures of our baby boy's nursery!  It took a lot of compromising with my husband, he thought everything I was picking out was just too girly.  Once he talked to a friend of his who also just had a baby boy and he said, "just let her do what she wants, he's a baby, it's all free game" it became easier to compromise....or not have to anymore!  haha  Well, he'll be here in about 7 weeks and I think he's just going to adore his new room.

It took us about 2-3 days to paint the room and that included the accent wall, which was pretty easy to paint...just required lots of tape!  I also created 4 pieces of custom artwork and bought a few pieces that I fell in love with.

Austin's Room

I met Austin's mom at the Overland Park Fall Festival last October and she hired me to make a couple of custom art pieces for his bedroom.  His dad was pretty adamant that it not be too girly, so I felt like I was really under pressure, haha!  I did keep checking with my husband, just to make sure I was keeping it very boyish...I mean, Austin is only 3!  :)  Here's what I came up with, I really LOVE both pieces!

Nursery Gifts

Wow!  It has been a long time since I have posted, I have good reason though....I am 7 1/2 months pregnant!!  We are SO excited and have been really busy preparing for a while now.  I will post some pictures of our nursery in another post, it looks AWESOME!!!

This post is actually to show off some artwork I created for a lady at work to give to her nieces for their nurseries.  They are both having girls, one has a sock monkey theme and the other flowers/birds.  Here's what I created for them, I think they turned out very cute!

Sweet find turned LOVE!

So, it seems like forever ago I posted this blog about my sweet find at my local Goodwill store.  It was this dresser, it was rundown and gross....but I could see the potential!
Well, with a LOT of help from my amazing husband it is finally refinished and placed into it's new home in our house!  After a lot of Pinterest searching, I decided I wanted to go 2 tone with it.  I think it turned out totally AMAZING and I am so happy with it!!

They will make a great Christmas gifts for friends and family!!  I am also going to be selling them at the Overland Park Fall Festival on September 29th.  Here's a few pictures to check out:
