So, as I'm rolling through my 36th week of pregnancy, I thought it would be the perfect time to share our nursery! I started this nursery transformation VERY early on in our pregnancy because the room needed some TLC that I knew I would not have the energy for later on. This room used to be our "master" bedroom as there is not a designated one in our 1960's home. You can view our new master bedroom tour here! I waited four long years to create this quaint, little space, so I wasted no time getting started! I had created an inspiration post before starting the room if you'd like to see what I had initially envisioned here!
First things first, I tore up all the old floor trim and replaced it with new trim, as well as swapped out the door trim (long term goal is to change the rest of the upstairs trim to match) and door knob. Next, I painted the walls a very neutral, warm toned white.
Paint and Stain Colors:
Trim/Door Color: Behr Premium Semi- Gloss in Polar Bear
Wall Color: Behr Premium Satin in Painter's White
Triangle Shelving and Growth Chart Stain Color: Minwax Weathered Oak
I have created numerous growth rulers/charts for people I know over the years and was ecstatic to finally create my own! Here, I created a post a few years back on making these DIY rulers! This and the wood shelves I built were stained in Minwax Weathered Oak, my go-to stain as of lately. I purchased the wood numbers from Joann Fabrics, but you could easily stencil numbers on.
I decided to keep things light and bright in keeping with a very neutral color palette and adding pops of pink with accessories and painting the inside of the triangle shelves I built. Some might argue this color palette isn't exactly kid friendly, but if you know me, I'm not a bold colored kind of person and I don't mind a little extra cleaning if that means living in a space that makes my soul happy!

My plan for the closet is once the baby is on the move, reinstalling the closet doors and painting them in a dark grey chalkboard paint. But for now, I'm enjoying the easy access and plan to find some cute baskets to hide the boxed diaper stash. The white woven basket underneath the end table will serve the purpose of hiding all of my pumping/nursing supplies.
