This post brought to you by nesting. Sponsored by the folks over at And For Now (aka...all the stuff I do to keep myself distracted). Head on over to check out other home improvement projects and random DIY projects.
Here are the latest nursery pictures. The only things I still need are to bind the quilt edges, put up some art above the crib and closet, and get a baby. At the end of this post I'm going to start talking numbers, I think we'll be suprised (or, maybe not).
View from door. Captain's bed on the right, crib and changing table on the left, and reading/rocking/HVAC nook in the back.
The captain's bed and door to the porch.
Crib and changing table, sporting a new crib skirt, just added this week (shout out to YHL!).
