From Office to Nursery - The List

I am on a list kick, so here is the long list of things that still need to be done to make the office a nursery. To see a before of the office go HERE. I'm sorry so many of my blog posts have been about this project, but I'm sure it won't be the last. It has been a large project and hasn't left much time for anything else.

A lot of this will be done by my super sweet husband as he has the time.

Items in blue will be done by the husband.
Items in purple will be done by me.
Items in green will be done together.

There are also several other things that need to be done in other places around the house.

Cade's Room
-get Cade a twin size bed (we will need his mattress for the crib)
-headboard project
-re-organize Cade's closet minus all of the baby gear - DONE

Living Room
-make slipcovers for ottomans
-make new pillows for couch (I've got to make that red chair work)

As you can see, my husband has a lot of work to do too. We are getting there. I'll update this list as we get things marked off or find new things that need to be added to the list.


  1. Lots to do...I like the idea of color coordinating what you have to do, he has to do and both of you! I think I'll do this, as well, so I can differentiate between the different things we have to do.

  2. OH sister you are gonna be busy!

  3. so much to do=)! but it's so fun to see everything get checked off! good luck! and congrats on the little one on the way, soooo exciting!!!

  4. Yikes! So much work to do, BUT, I just have to tell you I love the new website banner :)

  5. Isn't crossing an item off the "to do" list the best feeling ever?!!
