Baby Lucia's Room Before and After by Jessica Miller

We decided to turn the smaller bedroom that was once my office into the nursery.  When I brought the house in September of 2015, I discovered not one but two layers of wallpaper! One that you see here and the one beneath literally just plain white textured paper.  My mom rented a deluxe steamer and bought a laundry detergent because this wallpaper would not come off.  So much so that we were losing piece of the wall.  After a couple days, the wallpaper was officially gone, dry wall needed to be replaced and my whole house smelled like Tide.  

The next steps were to paint the walls, ceiling (it was literally brown) and trim.  The first color I chose for my office was Iced Apricot SW 6352. We thought we could keep this color for the nursery but decided it was a little too dark once everything was placed. We ended up landing on Nearly Peach SW 6336. I'm a big rug fan so I found the rug I loved first then started shopping for supporting items based on rug.

Home Sweet Home by Jessica Miller

Well the last seven months around the Miller/Lemmo home has been eventful to say the very least. Last Fall, when we found out I was pregnant we dove head first into home renovations.  Luckily for me, Tony (my partner) is hybrid between Martha Stewart and Bob Villa.  And luckily for him, I am really talented general contractor i.e. - picking out interior finishes, furniture and decor.  Here's an overall view of everything that has been completed thus far in our 66 year old Waveland Woods home. Stay tuned for room by room details with progress photos and details of what was used and where we found it.
