Beware of the Befores

With E's big boy room almost complete {reveal soon, I promise! It's just those dang details like wall decor that slow me down!}, we are ready to start another 'big' project! I think our master will just have to wait and may take a longer 'work in progress' timeline as baby Boy's arrival gets nearer and nearer. {Can you sense the panic yet?!}

There are two areas that are on our TOP PRIORITY list before his entrance into our little world: the pantry and the nursery/office. Does that make it a nurs-office or a offic-ery? Anyway, both places are in horrid status whatever you call it which is why we should probably get them in order asap. Brace yourself, please.

Current Status of Nurs-Office:
W used it mostly when he was finishing up school and we've basically turned it into a "Throw Whatever In and Shut the Door" space since. That includes "Throw Crib and Dresser" in too. The theme already in here is a ol' Western which I may just play into for baby Boy's area. And I'm totally cool with keeping the olive green wall color. Time is short here, people.

Current Status of Pantry:
Absolutely horrible, right? Please tell me we're not the only ones with these dark secret spaces! And it's such a sad, poor use of space! It's a coat closet but is right outside our kitchen area. I'd really love to turn it into a pantry/storage area. Most likely for my craft supplies since most of that gets done at the kitchen table while E plays in the family room.

Check back tomorrow for some positive inspiration boards that are more appealing to the eye!

we definitely don't, but remember, we move pretty much once a year ;-)
Plus, you're doing so many projects and such!
Looking forward to the "after" pictures :)

I love your blog! You have so many cute ideas. :0) Ha ha and I also have several places in my house that look the same way!
