Even though I've still got 4 months before this baby gets here, I have been in major nesting mode lately - which I have been quite enjoying since it never really kicked in when I was pregnant with Phoebe.
I guess I just keep thinking that if I don't do it now, then it will never get done once I have two kids. Plus, I might as well use all of this energy while I have it. I remember all too well how I felt last time during my 3rd trimester!
So we've been doing lots of cosmetic work on the house lately - painting, making curtains, rearranging rooms, hanging pictures, and refinishing some recent thrift store finds. I can't wait to show you the final reveal on the dresser above - including the amazing price I got it for! Here it is all sanded, primed, and ready for paint.
This little table has gotten a new paint job, and I just need to pick out some fabric that is going to cover the top.
To go along with the nesting, I've decided to put a few things in my Etsy shop that has been sitting abandoned for way too long. I'm still not quite sure which direction my shop is going to take - be it quilts and other handmade goods, custom orders, vintage finds, or fabric destash (particularly vintage sheets :), but I'll add a few things here or there until I get a better idea of where it's going.
This quilt was actually made over a year ago as a gift, but it didn't end up being large enough after I used up all of my Jenean Morrison's Moondance line. However I think it would make a perfect baby quilt and playmat - especially for a boy or gender neutral nursery!
I'm also putting this little gem in the shop as well. I love it to death, but we seriously just have more quilts than we know what to do with around here. I'm sure it will find a great home with someone who will really treasure it!
I hope you all are having a great weekend. Wish me luck in the coming week - we've decided it's time to break Phoebe of her paci, so I'm hoping we can all make it through in one piece!
