The Before...

By the time baby boy #3 blessed us with his presence we were already full-time working parents to a 1 year old and a 2 year old and renovating our home.  We were stretched thin.  We set up his crib and called the nursery decorated.  It was a loose interpretation.  I love interior design but I've never really been one for nurseries.  They're babies for such short periods of time so I figured I'd just wait and design their rooms when they were a bit older.  So here we are.

The first things I'll tackle are to freshen up the room with new trim & door paint, swap out the brass door knob and outlet covers and then paint.  You can't tell here but the hardwood floors are in rough shape and cannot be refinished so we're considering installing wall to wall carpet.  We're hardwood floor people but we're hoping that carpet can create some noise insulation and make the bedrooms cozier.  Maybe we'll revisit hardwoods down the road.

  1. A step-by-step process on renovation? That's nice as you guys can plan ahead while being able to use the room while it is being renovated. Living with cute kids usually means time is of the essence when it comes to renovations, so this approach is actually a good plan.
