Nursery Trunk

Jason found this trunk at a garage sale before Reese was born, and we love it! It was already pink, so it went perfectly in her room.

Now for Colson...not so much. Jason has been sanding it down, but we can't decide what color to paint it. I am so proud of my hubs for tackling this project. ; )

We're thinking either cream or red? Cream is the safe color, and red would be bold. The red would match the stripe in Colson's bedding, but I just don't know if I can go red (for furniture). ; )

Drawers are on this side.

Guess you'll have to wait and see!


Thank you always for your sweet words. I feel like I have been big for months as I roll off the couch each night and out of bed in the mornings. Jason and I just laugh at my belly. Let's just say his grandfather (who is the NICEST most GENTLE man) compared me to a walrus. It was hilarious.


Then be glad and rejoice forever in what I am creating.

Lauren said...

When you have gained 70 lbs., we'll talk "walrus"! =)

Karen said...

I vote red! Your belly is so cute, and boy does Westin resemble Jason. Both handsome, of course! Have a blessed weekend.

I think you should go for red! I'm thinking about painting a bookshelf red in my son's room.
It is a cute trunk!!!

I get teased that I get kids the easy way......family services calls and I pick them up at the hospital.....maybe easy to get but you don't get to keep them forever very often.

You look beautiful and I envy your time being pregnant and preparing, I've never had that.

Shannon said...

Walrus??!?!?! Missed that one!! Who?

Brandi said...

What a cool trunk. You can do red!! We had Ty's furniture painted Pottery Barn red and it turned out WWWAAAAAYYYYYY cool! Cream would be pretty too. Can't wait to see what color you choose!

Linds said...

You could do an antiqued red so it wouldn't be so bold... just a thought! it's precious though!

Mandy said...

Go red!!!!

Bananas and Damask Interiors said...

I think red too. I agree that if you antique it, it won't be so bold and it will last through more of his stages. All you would have to do is paint it red, sand the edges a bit, and then apply a espresso gel stain or glaze...it would be so striking!!

We're continuing to pray for your precious family!

Love, Anna

Way to go, Jason!!! Kyle has about 2 pages of projects to complete before Baby Johnson gets here! You look amazing, and if Grandad compares you to a walrus, I'd love to show him what a real baby bump looks like! I'm sure he'd compare me to an elephant!!! Hope you guys are doing great!

Nicole said...

THe trunk is AWESOME!!! Maybe a distressed red?!!!

Alison said...

Ok-that is the best garage sale find EVER! If you decide to put it back in a garage sale then I want dibs on it. :)

Brittany said...

That trunk is AWESOME! I say go Razorback Red!

Lena Medina said...

Go RED!!! I love it!

Sara said...

What a great find! We have a red bookshelf in Bryce's room and I love it, so I say go red!

Amanda said...

I think red would be fun! I love going bold in a baby's room (although I didn't! Ha!).

Robyn Beele said...

Love that trunk! I think you should go for bold red!

Rachelle H said...

I say dark red, too :) we have a dark red toy bin in the playroom, and I love it :)

but either choice sounds good :)

yes--I understand being pregnant 2 years in a row--I just got rid of a bunch of clothes, because it had been so long since I'd worn them and knew it would be awhile until I wear them again with nursing and extra belly :) (I'm 17 weeks pregnant, again!) but it will be fun to get new clothes after that if I get a break :)

you are so tiny and pretty--don't even worry about it!

Fabiola said...

This trunk is really great!!!
I would go red all the way. I am so tired of my plain (white, brown and black furniture).

Donna said...

You look great, Katie! Your belly is adorable! I wish it was me again. ;)

I, too, think you ought to go with red for the trunk...but I know whatever color you guys make it, the trunk will be fabulous!

Blessings to you, sweet bloggy friend, and I'm praying for you!

Melissa said...

I vote for red, but totally get some tinted primer first (ask me how I know!). BTW, your baby bump in the post below is so cute!!!!

The Van Ordens said...

I vote red! I painted my son's bookshelf in his room red and also his chest of drawers is red! Added just a pop of color and I love it!
