Well, I know it has been sometime since I have posted here. Since my last post, we added a new addition to our family! Our baby girl, Beckett Vivian Bryant made her debut March 16th and we are all adjusting to our new normal around here. I have yet to decide if I will share her birth story here, but boy-oh-boy is it a good story. 🙂 For now, I wanted to share her nursery that was finished before she arrived, I just never blogged about it here on my piece of the web.
If you know me, I do not like tons of pink but I wanted her nursery to still be simple and a touch of girly. For her paint color, we painted two walls a Dusty Rose which is exactly just the color I was going for in her room. I really love the color in person. Two other key factors I kept in mind, keeping it simple and budget friendly.
Before Beckett was born, this room was my all white office with old carpet. It was very boring. We had decided to put laminate flooring in our whole upstairs so this was the perfect time. My husband worked his tail off to get it all done before she arrived. Once the flooring was finished and the walls were painted, we assembled her crib, dresser and chair. I only added a few decor items for now. I did one DIY project, the greenery loop above her crib. It was a very easy DIY anyone can do.
Of course, big sister Lilly had to make an appearance. 🙂 She loves sitting in that chair and looking out the window. Even though Beckett does not get much use of her room now, here soon she will be in there full time and we cannot wait to watch her grow in her own space. She also has a crate of books ready to be read to her while rocking in her chair. Can you tell I am excited?

Thanks for stopping by to check out baby Beckett’s nursery. Now that we have a schedule around here, I plan to get more posts up before my maternity leave ends in 7 weeks.
The summer is always a great time to finish up those home projects you have kind of put off for sometime. I know we all do it. Today, I will share with you our DIY farmhouse table that, yes we started last year and it got put aside with all the busy schedules of work and opening a boutique. Please excuse my lack of other decor and table scape at the moment.
I will say, I am in love and you are going to need to build one asap if you have not already. If you are like me, you have fallen in love with the restoration hardware table but not the price tag. I just do not have thousands to spend on a dining room table so I went with the build it option. I love DIY’s so it was a no brainer that we could make this table for around $100 and we did! After purchasing all the materials, my handy builder, my husband got to work with the building of the table. Keep in mind all of the tools and major things we already had on hand. Halfway through the project, we took months, yes months off and came back to it this month. He was the builder, I was the supervisor and I stained the table. We did not use an exact template as we changed somethings about the look but I would recommend going to DIYer Ana White for a great step-by-step tutorial. You can paint it or stain it whichever you prefer. We made it a seating for six but you can make it for four or you could make the table longer to accommodate more than six guests. Our dining area is only so big so we went with around a six foot table. My dining area is so transformed with this table and chairs. The chairs are from Target, I bought them online late last year. I also did not want things to be match, so I am okay with my chairs not being the same exact stain color as the table. I think they work well together and the overall look of the set up went beyond what I had expected. I am so happy how everything turned out and now we can have more guests for dinner.
