Pre-Baby House Stuff

Two weekends ago my mom came for a visit and we did an amazing amount of house rearranging for the coming baby.

We put up shelves in the laundry room to hold all the stuff from the guest room closet.
Beautifully installed 8 foot shelves. Stephen rocks the handyman chores.

Here are the same shelves, mostly full.

Same room, opposite wall. 3 foot shelves. Yes, our laundry room would be considered bedroom size in some states. I thought it was odd when we moved in and now I’m grateful for the storage room!

See my beautifully labeled bins? I am so OCD.

We moved this shelf from our bedroom to the front hall.
It works much better here as it fits to scale under the picture better than it did in our room.

We moved this bookshelf from the guest room to our room.
Also fits the scale of the room better. I got to hang that weird piece of art that hasn’t hung anywhere since we moved to this house. Check out my groovy new bedspread. Our room is much cooler now than it was before.

Today I went and purchased the paint for the baby’s room and some of the guys are coming over on Saturday to paint. More photos to follow…

    Love the new look. Be sure and save some work for us while we are there week after next.

    Never fear! Pop gets the next round of shelves and possibly the play set in the backyard. There’s more than enough work to go around!

    Nice rearranging! I completely dig the new bedspread. Excellent choice. 🙂
