Where My Babies Slept (Nursery Tour)



T-minus 8 days until we close on our new house!  I wanted to show you the last corner of our first home before we leave it.

This room is one of the harder ones to leave.  It's gone through many transformations over the years, from blue airplanes, to pink and purple flower garden, to orange and turquoise ocean-themed, to coral and mint florals.  Each of my babies have slept in here at one point or another.  This is how it looks right now, how I decorated it for our last baby, Georgie.  It's hard to leave it, especially since she turns one year old in a couple weeks.  I labored over that quilt when my belly was so big I couldn't pick up the needle when I dropped it.  I rocked her when she was only as big as a loaf of bread, right in that chair.

The only thing missing is the rows of family photos that were on the wall right above the bookshelf - I took pictures of it before I took them down for showings, but I accidentally deleted the photos, so aside from one photo from my phone, you'll have to use your imagination.  Still, I'm glad I found time to snap a few more shots of this room amidst all the packing that is happening this week. I want to remember the place where each of my babies slept.

That's it, guys!  Our whole house, all the rooms in our first home.  We've had so many milestones here, so many good memories, and a few tears.  This house has been good to us, and the Lord saw us through it all and blessed us here.

Goodbye, First House.

The "Master" Bedroom (Before We Move)



This house will officially no longer be ours on Friday.   I thought I better get a move on and show you the last couple rooms!  

This is our "master" bedroom.  I put "master" in quotes because it doesn't have a bathroom actually attached, but it's the biggest bedroom in the house.  It's gone through a few transformations over the years, and this is what it looks like now, right before we are about to leave it.

This wall color is a good example of how a color can be scary until it's finished, just like our house color.  When we painted the outside of the house gray, we were afraid we made a mistake until we added the white trim.  When I painted this room "Ice Cube" by Behr, I was afraid I had made a mistake!  I wanted something that could feel airy, but could also feel cozy, and when I got this color on the wall it just felt...chilly.  But I persevered, and once I added all the furniture and wall decorations back in, it hit that balance of airy and cozy and colorful that I was going for.  

I'll probably go with a different color in our new master bedroom, because it's much bigger and I think this color would actually feel cold in that room.  But here, I've enjoyed it!

The Boy's Room (House Tour Part 5)


Out of the whole house, I think I had the most fun decorating the boys' room!

Before I started, I got inspiration to do a camping/mountains/outdoor/adventure themed room for the boys, and it just so happened, that after I decided to do that, I realized that Target had come out with a line that fit with my vision perfectly!  Can't get better than that.

I painted the walls a Behr color called "Campfire Ash" - a very appropriate name for a room with this theme.  It's a very pale, neutral gray.  The boys' room is one of the only rooms in the house that gets warm light, so the gray actually worked in there without being too cool (I'm not a fan of grays in rooms that already get cool light).

In the pictures below, you might also notice that one side of the boys' bookshelf looks funny - that's because when I was almost done painting this room, I let Wyatt take a nap in there.  There was a can of paint with the lid on, and a brush in there with him.  I honestly didn't even think about it since the can was sealed, but I went in there later to find my little boy covered in paint, paint on the carpet, and paint covering one side of his bookshelf.  I had to scrub to get it looking this good!  We had a lot of paint mishaps during our remodel.  I was not happy at the time, but it's a funny memory now!  Look at how little my babies were in the last pictures!
