Almost as soon as we’d started working on the new nursery, we decided to put the brakes on that plan and keep our guest room a little longer. We have so many visitors coming between now and when baby number two arrives that it made sense to purchase a queen bed for the room (which will eventually have a home in a guest room in the basement) and put a little effort into making the room comfortable for our visitors.
When we moved in, this room was an empty green box…
Which we painted and spruced a bit for visitors over Memorial Day.
The first of our fall visitors arrived last week, so we scurried around beforehand and pulled together a nicer guest room. Here’s the room now with the addition of new curtains (which will stay when this becomes the baby’s room), a new bed and bedding, a secondhand chair, and art.
We found the turquoise chair at a random yard sale one Saturday for $5. It was missing the center button, which I replaced by stealing a swatch of fabric from the underside of the chair skirt and using it to cover a new button. I’m particularly excited about this chair because I want to convert it to a rocker when this room becomes the nursery.
I fell in love with these prints from Rifle Paper Co and was so happy when they arrived for this room. I hung them a bit high to account for guests sitting up in bed, but they will also be staying on this wall when the guest room becomes a nursery…
Because… It’s a GIRL!
Yep, we’re having another baby girl and we couldn’t be more excited! Some of you may remember when we announced we were expecting Libby (funny photo alert!). This time around we shared this photo series with the caption “A three year tradition of picking pumpkins and growing baby girls!”
So that’s the news from Heardmont. Our second nursery is staying a guest room for the time being, but we’re looking forward to turning it into a proper baby girl’s room by January!
