Joe painted the nursery a few weeks ago, sadly without me. No fumes for this little lady:) We chose the color from Home Depot, it's Behr's Tanglewood. It was SO hard picking a paint since the colors in the room are so bold and we didn't want to go white. Joe and I made a little game out of it at the store....we walked down the aisle away from the paint (which helps so much just getting away from all the choices) and then one of us would close our eyes while the other switched swatches and held them up by the bedding. It was so fun and took the stress out of it. We both agreed on our color but bought a sample just to be sure. Joe did a great job painting and we were able to use the white paint we bought for our bookshelves to touch up the doors and molding in the nursery.
You can't really see it in the pictures but we bought a 5x7 rug from Urban Outfitters for $30!!! Yes, my friends, I lucked out and the day I went to buy it, it had been marked down more than 50 dollars!! I love the giant navy polka dots...so fun!
The nursery is really coming together, although the nesting part of me feels like there is TONS to do still:) These next few months will be busy!
Speaking of busy, Madeleine is busy growing! Here are some belly updates from the past few weeks.
