Baby Zottola’s Nursery So Far

I am finally sharing about the progress we’ve made on baby girl’s nursery! It has been a lot of fun to dream up what her room will look like and imagine snuggling and caring for her in there. We feel so blessed to have her in our lives already and can’t wait to meet her 🙂

Here’s an little inspiration collage I put together.

Basically, we want her room to feel cozy and happy. We painted the walls a very light gray, the ceiling is coral, and we might be painting the doors an aqua color.

To get the warm feeling in the room, we’re hoping to have a lot of wood in the furniture, flooring, and decor, and will likely add in some greenery via succulents or plants.

So, here’s what the room looked like before. It was previously our home office. Before we were expecting, I had wanted to paint the room a peachy coral color but never got around to it. When we found out we were having a girl, we decided to stick with the peachy-coral color scheme.

We cleared almost everything out of the room and removed the baseboards, then Jimmy got to work painting. We started out with painting the ceiling the peach color you see in the one photo above, but thought it was too bubblegum pink-ish, so we ended up repainting it a darker, more coral shade that Jimmy picked out.

Jimmy also installed new flooring! We have hardwood floors in our home, but they’re pretty beat and we didn’t feel like resurfacing and staining them (been there, done that), so we bought interlocking vinyl flooring to put on top of the hardwood.

Here’s what the room looks like now!

So, that’s where we’re at with baby girl’s nursery. Next we need to install new baseboards, paint the doors, pick out a light fixture, and purchase blinds or curtains for the windows. After that we can set up her crib and any other furniture and begin adding in decor and such!

Pictures

Hey there! I am working on my purity ring Q&A post, but in the mean time, I want to share some pictures I’ve taken recently. They’re all pretty random. Just the way I like ’em!

cats

Surprise! A cat picture! Just kidding, that’s not surprising. I just love Lily and Felix. Right after I took this picture, they started play-fighting and I got nervous they would break my window’s screen and fall to their untimely deaths.

swimming

Swimming is one of my most favorite activities in the whole wide world. It’s so relaxing to me. I also have the best swimming buddy!

On Saturday, Jimmy and I did something we’ve never done together before. We got our hair cut! I asked the hair stylist to cut off my dead ends, and now my hair is like three inches shorter. I’ll have to post a picture soon. I liked that the person who cut Jimmy’s hair spiked it! In the photo above, he was reading while I worked on some internship work. Can you guess where we were?

I really enjoy working in my church’s nursery. It makes me want kids and not want kids at the same time.

I washed my truck on Saturday morning because the weather was amazing and my truck was dirty. Yay for being productive.

What’s the last thing you photographed?!
