Our daughter and SIL are feverishly trying to get the nursery ready for their firstborn (Benjamin)...due anyday now. They painted the room, bought garage sale furniture to refinish along with a crib, chair/ottoman, and reading lamp from IKEA. They have done practically everything themselves from designing to all the sewing, refinishing, etc. Why so late in getting finished up? Because since January, they have also totally remodeled one bathroom and laid all new hardwood flooring THEMSELVES. These kids are not afraid of hard work. We can't wait for our Benjamin to make his appearance. Oooo....this grandma is soooo excited! (Pics of the nursery below)

Lady50, such a sweet nursery. Your children are very creative and HARDWORKING Keep us posted. Being a grandmother is definitely
G R A N D !!!
What a wonderful nursery. Obviously, you are a talented family!
Congrats grandma. As a DIYer who's helped her DH install hardwood flooring, I commend them. This nursery shows their talents very well. I too love that tree lamp. Benjamin will be one happy baby.
What a clever couple and what a lucky little boy!
Your excitement is palpable grandma, and so understandable! These young ones are a true gift to grandparents.
How proud you must be that they have so wonderfully fixed a special room for his very own first space. But that will be nothing compared to the pride you will take in him!
Congratulations to you all.
Oh Lady, the nursery is awesome. Your family has done a great job in decorating it. I know you will be over the moon when you welcome Benjamin to the world. Being a grandmother is the most amazing feeling in the world. Congrats to your family. Enjoy this time in life. Blessings!
Beautiful and creative nursery. Love it! Have fun rocking Grandma!
Congratulations! They have done a great job on the nursery!
It's just so cute. I'm loving it. And you will just love being a grandparent too. It's wonderful : )
Thank you, everyone, for the kind words and well wishes and for allowing me to share my excitement. I've dreamed of this stage of our lives, and 2 years ago we made a big move in preparation for it after living out of state for the last 36 years. We can hardly wait to see Benjamin and let him know how much he is loved!
The room is so cute! They've done a great job with it, and they're lucky that they're so handy.
I really love the tree and the birds.
Congratulations on becoming a grandmother. It really is the best feeling in the world.
What a great room for little Ben. Please make sure the toy box has the proper safety hinges so the lid can't slam down on the little ones head- cant remember the exact name of such hardware .
You will love being a grandparent- Enjoy!!
Thanks Wanda and Mamaspoon. Everyone says being a grandparent is one of the greatest of life experiences.
Mamaspoon, thanks for the reminder about the toybox. They had already decided to install a piano hinge or other type that wouldn't allow his little fingers to get smashed.
Have a terrific weekend all!
