Sprucing Up the Nest, Part 2

23 Feb

Remember how we re-did our second floor to make a larger master bedroom, bathroom and nursery? And how we decided to go ahead and pick paint and a light fixture that would as a second guest bedroom now and a nursery down the road?

Well, I thought you might like to see what that room looks like now:

Our Home: Future Nursery

One day ...

Wall color: Bejamin Moore Light Yellow
Floor: Australian Cypress
Rocking chair: Belonged to my grandmother when my mother was a baby

That built in window seat is clevery hiding some unattractive, but necessary, duct work. Woo!

That’s all. You may go about your day.

    I love this room! When I was a child I longed for a room with a window nook. There’s something very story book about a nook. :)

      We considered an even bigger nook by opening one of those walls up a little … but our contractor dropped the ball.

        Susan, not that my opinion amounts to a hill of beans, but I think it’s perfect! It’s nice and cozy! I can just imagine your son or daughter curling up with The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe on a frosty day or The Dark is Rising on a gloomy, gray day with rain pouring down the panes.

        On second thought, I think *I* want to live in your nursery. As an adult.

          Awww. Thanks, Heather. To tell the truth, we had that same window seat installed in our room. It’s pretty cozy!
