Making Progress!

Today we made a purchase that I am SUPER excited about!!! Well, minus the 4 to 6 weeks it will supposedly take to get here, of course. ;)

As you may know, we're expecting baby #3!! A BOY!! In just 18 short weeks! So exciting!! Since we found out we're having a boy, I started planning the furniture situation for the kids. Both LO and Chase have Munire convertible furniture (crib to toddler to full) in dark espresso finishes. With a little guy on the way, I decided I want to take LO's furniture (converted back to a crib) and use it for the baby's room. That way I can purchase new furniture for LO in a white finish (much more girly, IMO) and finally do her room up nicely, just like we did for Chase's room a few weeks ago.

Of course she doesn't know about this yet, as it is all part of my master plan! We will completely overhaul her room -- including her new furniture -- while she's at a sleepover so she'll have NO CLUE about it until she walks in and sees it for the first time! WOOT!

So back to today's purchase... we bought her new bed and dresser with mirror! Yay! See how cute??

The Legacy Classic Kids Madison full panel bed:


Along with the Legacy Classic Kids Madison Dresser & Arched Mirror:


I am SO in love!! And of course, these will pair beautifully with her new Pottery Barn Kids bedding we purchased last week:


I am so happy to have all of the main components of her new room on hand and/or ordered and on the way! I'm hopeful we'll be able to do her room transformation by mid-February. Besides a few miscellaneous decor items, the only other outstanding purchase to be made is for her new bedroom lighting, which I'm hopeful will be something like this chandelier from eBay (with or without shades... I can't decide... thoughts??):


Once everything is HERE and LO is NOT, we'll knock this new room out in no time! I only gave us about 8-10 hours to do Chase's entire room, but I'm going to allow over 24 hours for LO's room since in addition to painting we'll also be installing wainscoting, chair rail and some other additional "stuff" that we didn't need to do in Chase's room. I CAN'T WAIT!!!

The super cool thing is that once LO's new room transformation is complete, we'll be able to start on the baby's nursery! And I'm keeping that one super simple and low-key (much to hubs' delight), so don't expect TOO much craziness going on with that room.

Of course eventually we'll FINALLY get to the master bedroom, but I won't talk about that yet since hubs needs a few days weeks months to settle into the idea of dropping another large sum of money on more new bedroom furniture and decor. ;)
