My friends and family truly spoiled us this weekend with the sweetest baby sprinkle (no registry, just diapers and girlie things since this is our second), and I'm all choked up over the adorable, tiny baby girl things we brought home. You could tell everyone choose everything with love and we really felt it. I'll do a recap post of the party as soon as I get my pictures in order, I'd love to get to share it with you since you couldn't be there in person.
It's funny how with your second you don't buy nearly as much, partly because you still have things you can use and also because you know that you don't really need that much anyway. Before this sprinkle, our baby only had a handful of clothes that I bought her. How crazy is that?! Even I thought I'd be snatching those up like only a first-time girl mom can! Maybe in due time.
But now that baby girl (still no name yet!) has acquired some super adorable clothes, blankets, bibs, swaddlers, bath towels and such, I'm turning my attention to the bathroom that's attached to her nursery so I can get it ready to organize and house lots of those things.
NURSERY BATHROOM BEFORE
I finished clearing everything out of the bathroom this weekend so that we can redecorate it and make it into a bathroom fit for a baby girl. When it was our son's bathroom, it was decorated in aqua and lime green, but I'm thinking we'll continue the lavender theme from her nursery into this room.
When we were having the nursery painted, I went ahead and asked the painters to paint the walls and cabinets here too. The walls were more creamy beige and now they are Sherwin-Williams Agreeable Gray, the same soft grey that's in the nursery. The cabinets are Sherwin-Williams Divine White. They just needed a fresh coat of paint from all the use over the last five years and especially from where our son's blue step stool kept kept hitting the doors by the sink, leaving lots of scuff marks I couldn't remove.
Although I'm not planning any major renovations to this room, I would love to switch out this light fixture. I remember six years ago choosing all the light fixtures for our entire house in one afternoon with a two-month old baby in tow and I had no real idea of what I was doing. Since then, I've seen so many other light fixtures that would look better than what we currently have. I'm sure I can find something more feminine.
Hello, baby bump!
I'm also thinking we could add some shelving above the toilet. We've got a decent sized wall space there that we could be utilizing for additional storage and as a pretty spot to decorate.
A few images of bathroom shelving caught my eye:
All of the bathrooms above are neutral gorgeousness, but since this bathroom is for a baby girl, I plan to add in that purple I mentioned above. I already ordered this fun gingham shower curtain with ruffles!
This bathroom was designed specifically with a baby in mind and the large countertop is where I used to lay our our son after a bath and dry him and get him dressed. I'll need to get another infant bath pad like I had with our son. A friend gave us hers when she was done with it, and it was one of our most used baby items, but unfortunately I didn't hold onto it.
Those two large drawers are really deep and perfect for keeping most of the baby clothes, but I want to make pretty drawer liners before I put her things in there.
I'm excited to get started on this new project! If she arrives on her due date, we have 7 weeks to complete this bathroom, but of course I'd like to have it ready in the next month. I better get to scheming!
keep in touch!
