Our nursery will be featured on one of my favorite nursery decorating blogs—Chic Cheap Nursery next Monday. Before we reveal the nursery on Monday, I wanted to share with you how the room looked before we found out about our little guy. It was dark, crowded and served as a guest room.

Notice the dark paint color, bad lighting and wood baseboards.
The dark wood closet doors were one of the first things to go.

Please ignore the swiffer and paper towels above. :)

Besides being a guest room (with not enough space for even one suitcase to fit), this room also housed my closet.

OK, I think you get the picture. It was dark, dingy, boring and nothing popped (other than the former guest bedding).

So, now that you’ve seen what we started with, check out my inspiration board and post for our nursery as a hint before I reveal the finished nursery.
