Starting the Nursery

Well, we've finally started working on the nursery!  Over Christmas break, Rudy and I finally ordered the crib, dresser/changing table to put in the nursery.  Rudy got started on building everything as soon as the items arrived.

My brother, Jason, and my sister-in-law, Elizabeth, came over this past weekend to help start decorating the nursery.  They took over the painting of the nursery - they did an amazing job!  I am so thankful to have my family around to help out with preparing for Kosta's arrival.

Here are some pictures of the nursery so far...(I know I still have a long way to go before it's done.)

Jason taping up the room.

Elizabeth starting on the first wall.

Hard at work.

 Green walls - one light and the other a little darker.

I don't think the pictures do the room justice because they don't capture the true color of the room.

Here are some more pictures with the furniture back in the room.

 Yes, I know the knobs on the drawers are different...I will be getting matching ones soon.

Now, I just have to finish getting the wall decorations, drapes, and some other things to finish up the nursery!  Thanks to my family for all of the help - I love you all!!
