Why am I boring you with business mumbo jumbo? Because it best describes the process we are facing in order to get ready for baby #2. It it will help explain why we are finishing tasks in a very specific order– hopefully saving money, time and space.
As you know, we are tackling three rooms:
- the guest room will now double as our office (from here on out referred to as the “goffice”)
- the old office becomes Noodle’s new room
- Noodle’s old nursery becomes Baby Boy’s new nursery
We need to get everything from the old office into the guest room before embarking on making the old office into Noodle’s new home. Once she’s in the new room, THEN we can fix up her old room to become the new nursery. AND ALL THIS NEEDS TO BE DONE BY EARLY MAY. Holy cow, could someone pass me a drink? Wait, scratch that… make it a cupcake. Chocolate, please. A pregnant woman’s best friend.
Anywho, that’s our critical path. I’ll be at you soon with some “before” photos so you can see the actual space, but here’s an inspiration board you get you started. It looks very beige– but the room itself if painted “Chive” so I can’t go too crazy with more color. Our budget for the entire room is $600– basically, the cost of the Alve corner desk armoire (from IKEA), an area rug, and one or two small things such as baskets for the Expedit bookcase that we are moving from the old office into that room.
Without further ado, here’s the inspiration board for the Goffice. As I mentioned before, I’ll be back with tons of details to fill you in on how it will all work once I take some “before” photos so you can visualize it all! Ohhhhhhhh, maybe by then my HGTV software will be here and I can REALLY show you what’s what!
