all posts now coming to you from here...

My husband is interviewing hopeful new attorneys this morning, so he is spending the morning and the early part of the afternoon at the law school. I was able to partially catch up on my sleep this morning and do some "nesting." We have a four bedroom house, so we had two guest bedrooms, a study, and our master bedroom. We initially decided to turn the study into the nursery because it was the brightest, cheeriest room in the house. We moved all of our study furniture out and then realized we didn't have anywhere to put all of our stuff! We realized that it seemed ridiculous to have two guest bedrooms that may only be used twice a year and then try to cram our own stuff into nooks and crannies in the house. 

We decided a couple of weeks ago to turn one of the guest bedrooms into our new home office and get a "family computer." We both spend so much time together on our laptops and when the baby comes we don't want to be doing that anymore. Not that it will be as much of an option, right? We also realized that needed to have somewhere for a third guest to sleep in case my parents and brother visit at the same time. A chair and a half was our solution! We ordered an oversized chair and ottoman and the chair is a hide-a-bed with a twin bed inside. Perfect solution!

Here is the new study. We painted it Silver Sage (a Restoration Hardware color that Benjamin Moore kindly matched for us) two nights ago. We haven't hung anything on the walls yet because we're still deciding on some organization pieces. 

My next post will have pictures of the downstairs bathroom updates and pictures of the furniture we just had reupholstered. No nursery pictures yet!
