Tonight: Nashville Nursery Makeover

Tonight (9pm ET/8pm CT) on an all-new episode of Bringing Up Bates, a handful of Bates travel to Nashville to help Tori Smith decorate Kade's nursery.

They stop at a local thrift store to buy a few items, but they come out with multiple carts of decorations, clothing, and toys.

Everyone plays a part in decorating the nursery, even the little kids. The Bates are very confident in Erin's ability to transform the empty bedroom into a baby room, although they admit that they are a little uncertain about her idea for an accent wall. Tune in to see the finished product!

Also on tonight's show, we see a glimpse of Katie at cosmetology school. What happened to her goal of studying nursing? You might be surprised at what her plan is...

  1. Nursing is such a good way to help others and do good. And there is such a shortage of nurses! To me, it seems a shame she switched to cutting hair and applying makeup.

    1. MO- Katie should do what she feels is best for her. There is room in every field to lend a helping hand to people. General nurses -RN- don't get paid much, a big factor in the shortage. (much shorter program) My roommate in college was in the nursing program to get a Bachelors of Science in Nursing and last I knew, she was the head nurse of a hospital floor. Much better pay but it takes 4 years. RN does not mean you have a 4 year college degree. That's a misconception. :o)

    2. Here in CA RNs are almost exclusively Bachelor Degrees and higher,now. Licensed Vocational Nurses- LVNs- are 2 years and CNAs are much less time intensive. They’re called nurses aides here. RNs make a great salary out here.Specialty RNs like neo-natal, icu etc can be even higher.

  2. Bradley and Carson look so much alike! If we didn't know they were cousins, I would think they were brothers. All growing up so much

  3. It was nice to see Lawson being so protective of Tori’s condition. He seems like a great older brother. I love how this family helps one another out and pitches in to lighten the load no matter what.

  4. I love the way the room turned out, however, it wouldn’t be my choice for a baby’s room, but that’s just my opinion. Erin definately has a flare for incorporating her creative ideas into a decorating scheme and her talent in this area is so evident. I hope we get to see some more of her ideas in action. It was fun trying to figure out what the finished product would look like. Great job!
