Update: Baby's Room

Hey guys!  Just popping in to give you all an update on what's been going on around the halls of Falconhead Cottage.

Now that the carpet is finally installed, we've set our sights on other projects.  Most recently, I engaged in what I referred to as DresserGate Twenty Eleven; I moved the tall dresser out of the baby's room into the master bedroom, and moved the long dresser out of our room and into the baby's room.  It took some finagling, but I was able to snuggle the taller dresser next to the radiator in our room.   And by the grace of God, I was some how able to fit the contents of both dressers into one:

 I gave him the upper drawers because I'm a good wifey :)

I took the mirror off of the longer dresser and moved it into the baby's room for him to use.  It is also going to act as our changing table.

 Pardon the mess.  We had our second shower this past weekend, and it looks like Babies R Us threw up in that room.  I have some organizing to do.

JEGs also installed some quarter round along the baseboards to fix that horrendous gap between the floor and wall that was totally skeeving me out:

 We were also gifted the Jenny Lind crib I have been dreaming about ever since I saw the first ultrasound.  I. Love.  It.

Finally, I added our TO Do list from Operation: Baby Drop with links to the finished projects.  You know, because I know you all are dying to know.

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!!

Always & Forever,

It's lookin good! That quarter round sure does work wonders, it definitely finishes the joint up. But what I really want to gush over is the crib. I've never seen the Jenny in that finish, it's gawgeous. Timeless too.

I'm sortasecretly jealous of all the baby schtuff sitting around the room. I looooved sorting and organizing piles of tiny clothes and burp cloths and whatnot. I might me ready to do it again. Someday in 2+ years. Or more. Maybe.

Quarter round is such a miracle worker. It looks great. And I'm pretty much obsessed with the crib, too. It's awesome.

It's amazing how many little things need to be fixed to prep for a baby!! The quarter round looks fab, good work JEGS.

I'm just salivating over that beautiful antique dresser. Makes ours look downright homely!!

And ohhhh how handsome is your Jenny Lind in that beautiful wood tone?! Simply gorgeous.
