Baby's room progress

Just in case you're wondering what on earth is going on with baby's room stuff over here, I can assure you that things are finally happening. 
I always thought I'd be the type to have the whole room designed and styled within a month of finding I'm pregnant, but chronic illness kind of put a damper on that! I have to say I wasn't remotely interested in baby clothes or nursery designs until the third trimester when the nausea got under control. Lately tho, I've been all on a baby spree and painted our dingy little spare room. Here's a bit of a progress update....

The befores:

I don't think I have to point out all the things wrong with this room.

After painting the walls, changing the lampshade, and installing new blackout curtains, it's now a blank slate for me to continue working on.
Here's the current progress...

There is still a bit to do (like adding colour, art, more furniture, etc etc) and yes, I certainly do fantastise about violently ripping out the wardrobe doors which are still the same. Thanks for asking! Also, I wouldn't be mad about replacing or disguising the carpet.

We've already got a wee collection of baby items from kind friends, even some sent all the way from the States. It blows you away how people want to help and be involved when there is a baby on the way!

As for the rest of the decor, and the gender of this wee tot.... I guess you'll just have to wait and see.

[P.S Anyone else using Blogger who has found it's changing the contrast and colour in your photos? It's getting frustrating!]
