Preparing for Baby Meagher

Kelly asked me to start making preparations for the baby coming soon. One thing that we have decided together is that we dont necessarily want to buy all the toys and things that corporate America says that babies need to have. Asking our friends who have recently had babies for their opinions on what worked and what didnt, as well as seeing what colors we like rather than what Babies R Us offers (pink, pink, and, well, pink).  That brings me to my point of this post. 
My parents gave us this cabinet when we got married last year. It has served us well, as more storage for games, DVDs and other random things, and now that we are going to have a baby, it shall work as a baby changing station.

This is what it looked like when I took off the doors and drawer and primed it. Sometimes the drastic change from something dark (like wood) to something light, even though it is just primer, looks good in my mind.

Kelly picked out this color yellow. I knew what look she is going for, but I didnt think it was going o be this bright yellow. Hopefully another coat darkens it a bit. Either way, it is fun and different. What do you think?
