Getting Ready for Baby!

We are coming down to the wire before our sweet baby boy gets here. My goal was to have his room done long before now, but bed rest kinda put a damper on things… Such is life! We have been working to get it done and we are so close! Matt has been working on our last big project this week! I can’t wait to see the finished product!

This summer we found a dresser we fell in love with at a cute little shop in Kalona Iowa. The problem, it was $400! I decided that we could totally replicate it much cheaper! That night I got on craigslist and found an awesome solid wood dresser  for $30! I emailed them and and as soon as we got back in town I picked it up!

This week Matt decided he was going to start stripping it so we could paint it. He has spent many hours working on it and is so close to being done. Once he gets all the old paint off (3 layers) it will get a fresh coat of paint and new hardware! I can’t wait to have it done!

Other than getting the dresser done and hanging the chinese lanterns, his room is finished! His bedding came today and we love it!

[singlepic id=54 w=320 h=240 float=none] This little man has so many adorable clothes! This doesn’t even include his sleepers, onsies, etc. He is going to be one well dressed kid!

I can’t believe he could be here in less than three weeks! Time has gone so fast! We can’t wait to finally hold our sweet boy!
