Our Woodland Nursery: Part I

Because I caught the nesting bug that bites {nearly} every pregnant woman, I’ve been on a mission to decorate our spare bedroom/office to accommodate the nursery.

We live in a small urban space in San Francisco, therefore we had to get creative with the set up.  Because we have a ton of friends and family visit through the year and because the husband works from home, it was important to me that we didn’t give up the spare bed or the office.  With some careful planning, we’ve made it work so that the spare room is a trifecta of guest bedroom, nursery, and office.

Here are the tasks I completed this week:

The Dresser:

For the dresser, I bought the RAST dresser from Ikea for the unbelievable price os $34.99.  Because it is plain wood {as seen here} I added some flair using chevron wall decals (on clearance at Target for $10) and wrapping paper (from Ikea for $1.99) and some Mod Podge.  Although I still want to add some cool knobs, this is the {nearly} finished fruits of my labor.

The Office:

…Next up is the crib assembly, guest bed bedding, curtain hanging, and wall art.
