Friends the adoption is going quite smoothly. We just finished getting all of our paperwork in and we are just waiting to get assigned a social worker (praying this happens by the beginning of April) . While we wait, we are doing the best we can getting our sweet precious child’s room ready. I think I have found my favorite spot in the house
Getting a nursery ready for an adoption is A LOT different then getting a room ready for a baby that is in your tummy. A, I have a lot of energy! (not carrying around any extra weight if you know what I mean). B. We have NO IDEA if our child will be an infant or a 2 year old or a girl or a boy? Either way we know that this room will be for someone super special and every time we step foot in it, itâ€™s a constant reminder to pray for the child that will soon be welcomed into our home.
I found this super awesome Mood Board on Pinterest and it was the perfect inspiration of what I was looking for in a gender neutral room!
I love the colors, orange, grey and light blue together. Their not too feminine and not too manly IÂ also really like all the animals!
Gotta love being inspired by Pinterest and wanting EVERYTHING in this room!!!
SIDE NOTE—-> Our sweet friend Shelly brought us to tears this week as she dropped off a giant bag of brand new newborn baby stuff! She had a miscarriage a while back and held on to it, to give it to someone some day. I was so blessed and couldnâ€™t help but cry. What an amazing blessing.
I love that itâ€™s all so gender neutral and honestly if we get a newborn we will be set!!!
So we have slowly started to get the nursery ready. We have a lot to do, but itâ€™s getting there. I love the color we chose! Itâ€™s the perfect mix of grey and blue.
I fell in love with this owl picture from Marshall’s, itâ€™s all the colors and fun owl design that I was looking for. For only $12 I couldnâ€™t pass it up.
Most everything else I have been thrifting or craigsliting. This super cute glider was only $40 bucks on Craigslist and is honestly more comfortable then any other seat in the house! I also thrifted the side table for $15 as well as the pillow for $5! I am looking for a cute little lamp to put next to the glider.
We decided to turn the dresser from our guest room into a changing table! I got this wonderful changing pad from a friend and ordered the cover from Etsy! I love the chevron pattern!
Our closet is another story, we want to remove the doors and put up a curtain as well as install a closet organization system, but I may do something a little cheaper that will work just as well.
I love these antique jars for storing things, they will be perfect for pasies, hair bows, or whatever little things are out there.
I also thrifted this owl vase for $3! Now I have to figure out what to put in it.
Some of the projects I am currently working onâ€¦..
1. This adorable tree mobile.
2. This corner bench for our living room for toys and such.
3. Building a fun wall of picture frames with cutesie Etsy art.
4. This piece of pallet art! Isnâ€™t it perfect?!
We still have so much to do, but are enjoying the process.
