Besides Emmett's nursery, Adam's and my bedroom is my favorite room in our entire house!! For those who have been reading this blog since the beginning, do you remember how cringe-worthy this room used to be?! It's almost unrecognizable now in the best way possible!!
This room makeover is courtesy of Nesting 2.0. haha! And like most huge projects in our house have started, one day when I couldn't take the nasty carpet and the puke-colored walls for one more second, I just started tearing stuff out. Then came the apology phone call to Adam and the push to finish the room before baby would arrive. I honestly accomplish more when I'm nesting and pregnant than any other time in my life. It's one of my favorite parts of pregnancy! I'm not sure if this categorizes me as ambiteous or just lazy during the rest of my life. Most likely the later. . .
There is still so much that should be fixed in this room. The floor is hopelessly imperfect, the windows should really be cleaned and our bedspread is covered in dried baby spit-up. I am also hoping to paint a simple canvas for one of the walls, build a long bench for one of the walls and this is my dream plant to have near the windows.
But honestly, this bright, happy spot is such a refuge for Adam and I. Every couple needs a beautiful, peaceful spot for spending time together. We keep this space free of toys and clutter because that's what the rest of our house and life are for. I loving hanging out and resting here after our long days. I love having a cozy sunny spot for afternoon naps with my babies. But most of all, I love how it feels like -- in the words of a friend -- you are in a cloud when you are in this room. haha! isn't that the greatest?!
