The last of the three bed rooms. This is the progress in the nursery so far, though it won't be finished until after the baby is born and we know the sex. Then we can finish decorating. In the meantime we are keeping it quite plain and neutral. This was how the room looked when we brought the house, this is how it looked after receiving a new ceiling, new paint, as well as having the carpets removed and the floor boards polished.

And this is how it is looking now-

The cot and change table were both Cohen's. The cot we brought from ebay, the change table from Ikea. The glass light cover was thrifted for $2.

+
This sweet old chair was my Grandmothers, the cushion was thrifted, the doll hiding in the cot was mine as a child.

+
This wardrobe is another ebay find we brought recently for $40. One day it will receive a new coat of paint and some new handles. And that little vintage dress? Well, I could not resist it and as we have Cohen's things should this baby be a boy, it seemed only fair to have a few things just in case it is a girl.

+
Thrifted 'Baby' embroidered pillowcase, baby shoes and vase. Porcelain bird house from Spotlight.

+
And a few more vintage dresses inside, just in case...

This room is also waiting on curtains and a rug. I can't wait to fill those little empty frames after baby is born. I have my eye out for a lamp table and a nice lamp, as well as a mobile. I love walking into this space though and imagining welcoming our new little one come March.
