Sewing room no more!

Good bye sewing room! I will miss you! Even if I didn't use you to your full potential most of the time!

It feels like we left the nursery until quite late but lets be honest, shes not going to be sleeping in it for months yet is she?! Packing my hospital bags gave me the incentive to get on with it as more than anything, things felt so unorganised, I didn't know where to find anything!

The decorating itself wasn't too bad as the room has stayed the same colour so it just needed a fresh coat of paint to tidy it up. We also built more of a cupboard over the box in the corner and have put a clothes rail in and more usable storage. As it's quite a small room, rather than putting on full wardrobe doors, I made a roman blind to cover the space. I also made a roman blind for the window and matching curtains. We didn't want to spend a fortune on furniture so we went to Ikea and are really happy with what we got. We brought a changing table with nice big drawers which we intend to use as a chest of drawers later on. We got some simple storage for the box cupboard which just happened to be a perfect size and works really well. Our best buy was the cot itself though. We didn't get the one that I thought I wanted by looking on the website but actually seeing them, this one was much nicer... It just so happened that the Bristol store had £50 off if you signed up for their Ikea card. At the time they didn't have it in stock but we decided that it was the one we wanted even if we couldn't get the money off. Luckily a bit later on in the week they came back in stock so went back in and got it cheap!

Although we know were having a girl. I really didn't want a all pink nursery, particularly as if we do have more kids in this house, I don't really want to do all the sewing again. Mainly because I'm no longer going to have a big space to sew where I can just leave stuff out. I also still really love that colour so had no incentive to choose another one.

I think it's lovely!
