So, here is a few before pic.'s- This is one side of the room, the walls are kind of funny as you can tell, which will make it interesting for crib placement, but we will figure it out=)!! In this shot there was plastic table that i used for scrapbooking and it was against the right wall. But i already took that down, and it is hiding under the sofa-- i also at this point had just about finished my paper scrapbooking and already given some of my supplies away...
Here is our desk, i know it is HUGE, i wish we had something slimmer. But it functions for now.... You can see i have tons of decor up and then a shelf thing to the side. Not sure where i was going to put all this stuff???
Well, our neighbor came over and helped us move the desk to the bedroom... which actually fits decently well... and the shelf thing on the left is from
Ikea and i moved IT to the closet.
I have been collecting baby stuff since we found out about these two... and so this shelf in the closet has become storage for all the clothes and diapers i have stocked up on... So it definitely needs to be cleaned out, so i can see what i have!
So, after i got back from Utah, the closet was the first thing i reorganized... it was driving me baddy!! I used the weird shelf thing to put storage boxes on, to store the babies clothes, because the bedroom has NO room for a dresser. And it has actually worked out perfect... so here is the closet now. A little better don't ya think??
So this was our living room for the month of February... and part of march!! I ordered the cribs when they went on sale, so they sat in our living room for a while, til we had room and time to put them together.
I think we were starting to get sick of them in the living room, because Rhett convinced his friend to help us put them together one day when they came home for lunch. Poor Andy didn't know that we was going to spend his lunch break building things!!
Luckily Andy has done this before so it made Rhett's job A LOT easier... they got one crib set up in half hour!! Sweet!! And luckily Rhett did the other by himself quite quickly the next day...
So here is the room with the cribs, and the futon, which is staying in the room btw. Having the cribs up made us realize we are going to be parents VERY soon!!!
As you can see things are a little tight with TWO cribs, but they make great storage for now!!
Another room before pic., well before the nursery makeover...
So after we came home from Utah and Lake Havasu my mom came to visit for a week!! It was so great to have her here and have her help get ready for these littles!! So here we are putting the bedding together, after we had taken everything off the walls.
Here is mom and I with a few of our fabulous finds!! I think we hit up every Ross, T.J. Maxx and Hobby Lobby in the North and West Valley's... in fact most of them we hit twice.. okay maybe three times. Every time Rhett would call, it seems would always be Hobby Lobby!!
So here is one wall that is right by the closet... when they start walking we are probably going to have to move this dresser. But for now we need the storage. We stuck with the pinks, greens and purple from the fabric and went with a New York to Paris theme. Mom is quite creative when it comes to decorating. Mom gave me that pink lamp months ago, and I LOVE it... it is so girlie!!
Here is a close up of one of the walls by the curtains.
Here is one wall, with one crib, sorry the lighting is really bad. You can see the lamp to the left, and the futon still fits!! Oh and I am loving the chandeliers!!
Here are the curtains... this is our proudest moment i think. The curtain rods are paper towel holders, half off from hobby lobby, but they added height to the elevated ceiling. And the curtains were a steal at target for $4!!! This is one of my favorite parts... and Rhett's too.
And the bathroom... like i said i wasn't going to the change bathroom much. But i let mom have a free for all and it turned out so cute!! It is our guest bathroom, so it is a little pink for guests... but I think it is great and bright and happy, and we used a lot of stuff from the decor at my showers in Utah.

Here are the finished crib bumpers for Baby A. The bumpers on the long sides of the cribs are the same for both cribs. But for the short side i used pink for this crib...
And baby B has green bumpers on the ends. Each quilt also has the same fabric as each of the end bumpers. One is green and white and one is pink and green on the back.
A LONG, LONG time ago i came across this memory game that someone made on their blog. They used pictures of their family, but i thought why not make a Book of Mormon memory game. So, i have had the supplies FORever, so i finally finished it. I am quite happy with how it turned out!!
My mom came a couple weeks ago and helped me finish the nursery(pics to come) and we decided to refinish this lamp that i had. We saw a lamp at T.J. Maxx for $60 with the same idea and thought we can make that...
So we used left over flowers from the baby quilts and made it. I think it turned out pretty good. My mom LOVES it, but maybe i am too critical of myself. Either way it is cute and i love that we incorporated the fabric into the lamp.
I knew eventually i would need a hair bow holder... in fact this hair bow holder is already full, i just took a pic before i put all their bows and flowers on there!! I found this cute, cute cork board frame at Hob Lob for 50% off, of course!! I love it, and i know i can reuse it even 10 years from now. So, that makes me love it even more. So i covered it in fabric and ribbon and Viola!
