Nesting Mode's In Full Effect

The nesting bug has hit harder than I EVER thought it would.  I've never been a neat freak...I've always liked to organize, but I hated general house cleaning.  My hubby has always been super sweet and took on the majority of the housework from loading the dish washer to doing laundry.  Well, recently the cleaning bug has hit me hard and not just cleaning, but I have this intense desire to make everything in the house as perfect as I can before baby arrives....

For the hubby and I that meant scheduling lots of home upgrades, upping our organization skills, cleaning out the clutter and amping up my cleaning schedule.  Today I want to share a little bit about how our

We started by picking out a new paint color for our master bedroom and bathroom.  It's the only room that had yet to be painted and I absolutely hated the ugly brown color we'd been living with.  We chose a light, navy blue color and I am LOVING it!!

Here's how it transformed the space from dull to bold.  Checkout our master bedroom:

And here's the master bathroom:

(Since this pic we've also replaced the light bulbs so they're all lit & even brighter. lol)

After the paint, we decided the tackle removing the carpet from all the bedrooms, but that quickly snowballed when our love for dark wood we ended up getting ALL the floors in the house (minus the tiled bathroom and tiled entryway) done in a darker color and new white quarter round as well. I think it's made a huge difference in the look of our home. 

The bedrooms went from horrible carpet that was original to the house to having a fresh new look....thank goodness!!  I don't know about you, but I HATE carpet...with pets and allergies it was nothing but trouble.

A peak at part of the living room:

And here's our dining area. We still want to replace the light fixture in here with a fun globe shaped chandelier and we're also having the kitchen cabinets painted white soon. 

While the wood floors were being done, we also upgraded our kitchen appliances (the dishwasher, stove and microwave).  Check out how much of a difference it's made in the look of the kitchen...and then just imagine how it will be when our cabinets are white...AHHH!!!

So that's where we're at now.  

Here are a list of projects still left to do:
-Replacing a portion of our fence
-Having the cabinets painted white
-Updating all the door knobs to an oil rubbed bronze color
-Saying goodbye to our mailbox on the wooden post and getting a brick mailbox
-Patch a few nail holes in the laundry room & kitchen
-Touch up a few paint spots in the baby room

Here are some extras we'd like to do if time allows:
-Add new light fixtures/fans in the living room and bedrooms
-Add a chandelier above the dining room table

Have you done any home upgrades lately?  If not, what's one of your dream projects you'd like to have done?  Or are you nesting like crazy too?  Let's chat about it in the comments!!
