Nursery furniture up

Cot

The nursery furniture’s now up!  It’s lovely to see the cot waiting for the baby to come, it’s definitely feeling more real.  We’ve been leaving the door to the nursery open so we can peek in because it’s making us smile.

I already posted that we’ve bought the Sienna nursery set from Mamas and Papas, which includes a cot, dresser and wardrobe.

Nursery furniture

The nursery furniture’s just arrived and is currently a work in progress.  I’ll show you the Mamas and Papas promotional shots and I’ll upload our photos as soon as we have everything together.

This one on the left is of the furniture set up for a boy’s room, and the girl’s one shows it for later on when the cot can magically become a bed.

It just arrived yesterday and so far, Barry’s built the cot and the wardrobe, so we still need

to build the dresser.

Second hand

My mum is going to move out of her house, and has asked us if we would like some of her furniture because she doesn’t need it any more.  She’s got a large chest of drawers, two bedside tables, three double wardrobes and a bucket chair.  We’ve said yes please to all of them and when can we hire the van?

She’s happy for us to paint or stain any and all of the items, and we’ve said we’d like to chop the wardrobes up as Barry feels like he could have a good crack at built-in wardrobes for our room, and she’s happy for us to do that as well!  Score!

There’s a couple of places in our bedroom where we could have built-in wardrobes, but they’re in the eaves so they’re expensive to buy and get fitted.  Better Barry has a go at it first!

Happy birthday to Barry!  Katheryn’s boots didn’t fit, so cross your fingers my Supergirl boots hold tonight…
