Nesting with Tarra ? – 5 months postpartum 😆

LB has been at my mom and dads since Friday and I have been going crazy with organizing and cleaning random stuff while Viv naps. Idk if it’s the dopamine from finally being able to accomplish ANYTHING in peace or some kind of hormonal response but i love it 😂

So far:

– cleaned out and organized kitchen cabinets

– cleaned out fridge

– helped install our home security system (by help I mean hubby did it then I made him relocate the keypad 😂)

– sorted through a bunch of paperwork

– painted around thermostats and home security keypad

Pics for proof 😂

17/18 weeks – Nesting with Tarra

This past week in Nesting with Tarra I did a few things. First, I threw out all of our towels and got all new spa grade fluffy white towels.

It was a need.

Then we tackled the kids bathroom. This was another room that like our laundry room, was white. Like only primer from the time it was built in 2006. When we were visiting a friends new house about a month ago they had a blue bathroom and LB asked for one for his birthday. His wish is my Nesting command.

I also had Brian frame out the mirror and put up a new light fixture. I added some hardware to the vanity (leftover from another project) and added a towel organizer for his new blue towels he had. I also got a new rug from home goods.

Framing the mirror was hell. Only because we had an old fancy track light from our old house we tried to use, but it was missing the back plate and … listen it’s a long story but it just wasn’t worth the hassle lol. So we got a new one.

Other than that, Brian pried odd the mirror boarded around 3/4 of the mirror (glued onto the mirror by builders) and glued the boards directly to the mirror. The top board is nailed into the wall. That board actually somehowwww got cut short. Nothing that couldn’t be fixed by cutting a small piece and gluing/caulking into place. After painting you can’t tell.

16 weeks in “Nesting with Tarra”

My plans for laundry beautification were interrupted last week because it was fall break. No preschool so no alone time.

To watch this story instead of read – watch these snippets from my Instagram story (follow me @Tarra.Yvette)

Anywho – I decided to work on it over the weekend when Brian could entertain LB and I could have my sister help with paint.

First things first, I had to pick a paint color. Which was HARD. I wanted to go with a blue color but honestly we have so much blue in our house. And it’s a small space so I thought I could get a little wild and go with a purple tint.

I planned on painting a billion swatches before picking but I walked Into Lowe’s and this color called my name

This week in “Nesting with Tarra”

My nesting instinct is already strong af and I’m only 14 weeks. Like, since week 12 I have reorganized/cleaned out my closet, cleaned out all of LBs toy boxes, painted furniture, redecorated our bedroom, got all new scentsy waxes and candles… I’m just on it.

I wanted to share the final bedroom transformation because I just love how it turned out. You guys saw the furniture transformation here – but I couldn’t stop there. Soooo I knew what I needed. That blank wall – had to go. I needed a large mirror and curtains. And some other wall decor. I went out to homegoods with my friend Jessica on Saturday and bought the items. Yal, the urge to finish the room was SO GREAT that I couldn’t stop myself from spending money on it lol. THEN it wasn’t enough to just buy it. Brian had friends in town and he was going to be out late.

So why did my pregnant behind hang the mirror and curtains and wall art at like 10 PM?

Jesus be a fence.

THEN I had to dig out our nice comforter set and wash it that night to put on the bed the next day.

However – everything turned out beautiful. Take a look:

After (please note – I want and will add a bed skirt. Hubby hates them. He has won the battle not the war):
