These are the ‘before‘ and ‘after‘ shots of our bedroom/babyroom! We bought paint at walmart for incredibly cheap and look at the difference a little colour can do! We wake up early in the mornings now because it’s brighter and well, because we don’t have a curtain yet.
We are planning on being thrifty in decorating because we really can’t afford anything extravagant. You can do simple and still make things look incredible. We found a GREAT deal on curtain rods for our living room and bedroom. $3.25 each and they are black and beautiful. We will be using some of the leftover material used to make our black bridesmaids dresses for fabric for curtains and if we don’t have enough, we will be heading to thrift stores on the weekends ’til we find what we need.
After our maternity photoshoot coming up this weekend, we will frame a few pictures in simple black frame and hang them in the room as well. Plus we will add photos of our little one as soon as he or she arrives. Knowing it’s momma and daddy– there will be A LOT of pictures of him/her. Poor baby =)
As you can see, I didn’t post pics of the entire room yet. Well it’s painted, but the cabinets in the corner I am still working on painting black. All but one is finished and then we can hang them. We are also taking down our closet doors (which notoriously fall off the track) and replacing them with a black curtain as well.
Super inexpensive and I am now LOVING our room. Our friends gave us a beautiful crib which we have at home, lying in pieces. A few important pieces were lost in storage so Ted is heading back soon to look for them. The crib will be up soon I hope! Our living room… we are about to tackle. Every weekend in May has something in it, but we are hoping to paint the rest of everything Memorial Day weekend. And from there, it’s just baby showers and purchasing things for Baby E/C and then awaiting his/her arrival! 9 weeks out- WHOA!
So you may be wondering...”What ever happened with the home situation?”
- People to commit to living in our apartment before we leave, even if it is just one of our homes.
- Ted and I to get our apartment cleaned out completely and moved into our new home before outreach without stress.
- Our rent at the apartment not to be high (unfortunately this always fluctuates which should be illegal, but somehow it always happens.)
- We will trust God.
Hey Friends and Family!
