38 Weeks!

I am 38 Weeks this week and feeling good! I am starting to feel uncomfortable now and then - but for the most part I still feel good!  Baby could come anytime - I am just hoping to get through my last day of work on Friday - then he can come! :) I finally have his room almost done - just a few finishing touches. It is really turning out the way that I hoped! 

Hopefully baby comes next week - when do you think he will come? Early, Late, Right on time?

Dresser Makeover

From the minute I started looking at nursery ideas and picked out the yellow and gray theme - I wanted to buy a junky dresser and make it pretty by painting it yellow - golden yellow - or "Viking" yellow. I bought this dresser at Salvation Army for $45 and a can of golden yellow paint from Lowe's for $10.
 I fell in love with the dresser because it had very modern lines and lots of storage. I was scared it would not fit in the small nursery because it is about 5 feet long, but because it is fairly narrow, it works great. It is perfect for storage and to double as a changing table for Baby.
 After some sanding and a few coats of paint - we had a bright yellow dresser! The problem was the top of the dresser. It had a very shiny coat of finish on the top and even some sanding didn't help the paint to stick to it very well. It was chip off very easily. If I laid a newspaper on the top of it, when pulling the newspaper up, it stuck to the dresser. I gave it one more layer of paint on top, let it dry, then added a couple layers of matte Mod Podge (I LOVE that stuff!). It has helped alot having the extra finish of Mod Podge on the top so things don't stick so much! 
Here are a few pictures of the finished dresser:

The drawers were plain and boring - what better way to spruce them up than some wrapping paper and more Mod Podge? 

There they are - bright blue drawers on the inside!!

Crib Skirt

I've been working on some projects in the nursery! Here is one project I finished lately: 
I got this cool printed yellow and white zig zag print fabric at the local fabric store - I just love it! I couldn't find a pattern of a crib skirt that I liked so I made my own. It will be perfect for storing things under the crib.

I hemmed the bottom of each portion of the crib skirt and attached with velcro to bottom of the crib. 

I got this great idea from this youtube video: from young house love. 

More pictures of the nursery to come! :)

35 Weeks!

35 Weeks this week - so crazy. Today: June 7  - Due date: July 7 = One month to go!! :) woohoo! I am getting so EXCITED! (I think I say that every week... but I am!) I am starting to feel big...I tried to paint my toenails tonight and that is getting to be a challenge- and I am thinking it is just going to get worse! With this 100 degree day, I think my ankles and feet are starting to swell - not already. :( This could get really interesting.
