So it’s been a month since I’ve posted 🙁 #1 I can’t believe it has been that long! #2 That also means that this pregnancy is moving along insanely fast! In just 1 week I will already be 24 weeks!! I’m starting to panic about all the things I haven’t even begun to tackle in the nursery yet, not to mention finishing my registry, researching daycare/nannies, take some baby classes…the list just keeps piling up!
I’m beginning to get the nursery design underway. I have my design scheme and have picked out a crib, chandelier and rocker with glider. Good start, right? The biggest project in the nursery is going to be designing to closet layout which I’m going to start tackling in the next week or so.
In the meantime, I finally finished the table and chairs in my breakfast nook! We won’t talk about the fact that I started this project when we got back from Hawaii (also about the time I found out I was pregnant) and my projects all went downhill from there. It feels good to complete some things that have been sitting for so long, I feel so accomplished!!
You might recognize this table from my entry way. When we first moved into our house, I found this table at a thrift store for $40 dollars and painted it white. The chairs came from my old dining table and were black before. I painted them with 3 coats of Heirloom Traditions chalk paint in A La Mode. I put on 1 coat of Heirloom Traditions soft clear wax and then lightly sanded the edges so the black paint would show through a bit.
I searched FOREVER for these chair cushions!! I couldn’t find anything I liked. Then, one day, when I wasn’t even looking, I spotted these at Home Goods and had to snatch them up! They are actually outdoor cushions but this area gets direct afternoon sunlight so outdoor cushions are actually great because the fabric won’t fade from the sunlight.

Last things to be done in this area are crown molding, a new exterior door and hardware to the deck and new flooring. I’m hoping the new flooring will happen in the whole house in the next year…it will really change the look of the house and complete many of the rooms. Stay tuned!!!
