A Nursery That Will Grow With Baby Boy

We bought our house when I was almost 5 months pregnant and raced against the clock to totally gut and remodel it before our Baby Boy was due to arrive on Valentine’s Day. We tore out all of the baseboard, installed new trim, doors, painted the walls, and resanded/stained the floor before decorating the space to personalize it for our first baby! Spoiler alert… we finished the construction with one weekend to spare before baby’s arrival. It was a crazy few months but so rewarding to bring our little guy home to a house we put so much love into before he arrived!
