Well, I went online to order the set I had decided on and the dresser was indefinitely back ordered! (I then sent a text to Nathan telling him "crib gone :(" to which he replied "what crib? - see my frustration here? What crib? Seriously? I am 8 months pregnant!). I decided to call and see if they could tell me what my options were since the one I wanted was not available in the set I wanted (which I had actually decided on because it was the July specially priced set and the crib was free!). Well, they were very nice and offered to give me a discount on a different set since the one I wanted was no longer available and it was on sale! So, I ended up with the set I really wanted for not much more than the one I was originally going to order!
A week later and me guiding a delivery man by phone on every turn to our house and my furniture was here! I immediately opened it and started putting it together! I was hoping maybe the dressers were assembled and just needed a few things added - wrong! Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, was pre-assembled. I had to put drawer glides on, put drawers together, make shelves, everything! It really went by fast though. I put the changing table together all by myself, and Nathan helped me some with the dresser and bed. I figured the changer would be the easiest and the bed hardest, but I was wrong! The bed only took 30 minutes where the changer took me about 2 hours! I was so excited to get it all put together and arranged (which of course took some negotiating between Nathan and I - God is funny like that) :)
We painted the room orange when we moved in and I still love the color. It goes really good with the rug! My mom bought me this rug when I moved into my first apartment to cover up the green shag carpet! Who would have guessed it would make such a cute nursery rug later! I think the furniture color goes so good with the rug and the walls! I love how it turned out! Now, all that is left is to get the newborn tub of clothes out and in the drawers and we will be ready for baby!
