Spring Cleaning & Huntley’s Nursery

Since our room addition should be complete within a month from now, I have spring cleaning on my mind and am ready to clear out that crazy garage of ours and all our closets! I am ready to start fresh while still keeping the theme(s) and style of our nautical home. The existing bedrooms will still be styled the same in Huntley’s room and our old room/soon to be guest room (with Penelope’s new room as an exception).

With the glider/swivel chair being moved into Penelope’s nursery from Huntley’s nursery, there are some empty spaces that need to be filled or at least made to look completed. Here are some of my finds and wish-list for Huntley’s room conversion from baby to toddler-hood!

I would like to move the play kitchen currently in our living room into Huntley’s room and would love to add this Pottery Barn Finley Play Table & Chairs or something similar. (How cute would this be?):

pb finleyI would also like to add a new furry rug in the room since our last one was ruined when Huntley spilled chocolate milk on it… this sheepskin rug would work perfectly to replace her old one (new rule: No eating & drinking in the bedrooms!):


With our house renovations and spring cleaning, we would really like to have our living spaces be more kid-clutter free (of course we’ll still have a few toy baskets in the rooms, but I ideally I would like to put away most of the toys or have them in the girls’ rooms. So it would only make sense to add a basket or two in Huntley’s room. These Wee Woodland Crochet Bins  from the Land of Nod would be perfect!


And for a growing girl with a  growing closet, I would love to have the Elfa Closet System installed in her closet as well as my own (because it’s been on my own wish-list for what seems like forever!):

Nursery Plans!

OK, if you know me, you know that I love to shop and I love to decorate! Half the excitement of finding out the gender for me was for these reasons! I know that’s terrible, but I’m being totally honest with you!

As I have mentioned. I was incredibly excited to find out that we were having a girl. I had already bought the crib and matching bedding for our little princess, even though we didn’t know the gender! But not to worry, I knew what I would do in case we found out we were having a boy, and don’t get me wrong, that nursery would’ve been badass! But, we’re having a girl and it isn’t going to be much different than Huntley’s nursery, other than it’s a tad bigger than hers and probably won’t get chandeliers since Tanner does not want to deal with those again (unless, I can’t help it and get an electrician…wink*). Instead of a Bratt Decor Casablanca crib like Huntley’s, this baby girl is getting a Simmons Monaco Antique Silver Crib. I know this crib might not be as high-quality as the Bratt Decor crib, but I got a great deal on it and just couldn’t pass it up! Also, I got a a beautiful crib bedding set. The maker is Cottontale Designs Lollipops & Roses (also, not as high-quality as Huntley’s Bebe Chic Angelica), but matches nonetheless – go figure!
