Countdown to Baby

In a fixer upper, there is ALWAYS something that needs to be done!  The hubs may not know it yet, but he is booked every weekend until his classes start back!  I feel this sense of urgency to finish all of our unfinished projects before he work and school picks back up, for fear that they will NEVER get done-especially after baby Kelton comes!

So for now, I have decided to cross a few things off my list!  Like baby bedding-do I really think I have the time to make my baby bedding?  Lord, I can't even find the time to go to the fabric store!  I think I liked the idea of knowing that I made the bedding that my little one in sleeping in-but I have decided to leave that up to someone else.

I do have a few small projects I am working on while hubby is patching walls and painting baby Kelton's room.

I found this great old chandelier that I need to rewire and find a few shades for.

It reminds me so much of this little cutie from pottery barn.

I am also turning trash into treasure with this small dresser.  It will get a coat of white paint and will soon turn into a changing table!

So with everything on my to do list, I am thinking the bedding will have to be left up to the professionsals!

That chandelier and dresser are perrrrrfect and will look soooo good in your nursery for your little one. :)

Did you all decide to be surprised about the gender? We did, and loved it. :)

You will LOVE the way the dresser turns out, I'm sure! Can't wait to see the "After"! Have fun nesting ;)
