Nursery Work Day

Blog Confession: I claim no responsibility for the creativity you are about to witness. I totally stole it from someone else's blog. I changed the colors and I changed the measurements to accommodate this particular room, but everything else was ripped off from Amie Way. We blog stalk each other and we're both cool with that.
She used to be best friends with a friend of mine in Middle School, so I think that MAYBE we might have met once in the early 90's, but I can't recall. Currently, she is friends with my friend Kendra and works with my other friend Melanie. So, there you have it. My blog confession. I am a blog stalker and idea thief. Thanks, Amie for the great idea!

Like I mentioned in an earlier post, this past weekend was work weekend on the nursery. My in-laws came and graciously helped - a lot. Thank you!
We go two major things accomplished:
1. the walls are painted
2. The crown molding is UP!
I would like to send a very special Thank You out to my sweet husband who HATES to paint and hated the idea of installing crown molding more than he hates to paint. Can you imagine what he will do for this little girl when she actually gets here?! He's in a mess of trouble!
Here is the room Before

We finally had to bring a pillow in to the room for Lola. It served as a bed so that she wasn't directly in any one's way. She loved all of the excitement.

This is the room After. Stripes on one wall and lavender paint on all of the others. The wall of stripes is larger than shown in this picture (about 7 or so stripes), but I wanted you to see the stripes AND the lavender walls together.

And since the tools were already out...Freddy and his dad made me shoe shelves!

Kuddos1 I LOVE LOVE LOVE the room. Can't wait to see it in person, you all did a fantastic job! I also love to shoe shelf... Charlie might curse you for this later because I am SO going to have him make me one!

Love you... PS- I bought Carly/Mallory a few things this weekend... one Christmas gift and 2 ADORABLE dresses for $1.00 at the Salvation Army. Don't hate - they are in great shape, still had the tags, and are sooo cute!

I'm not sure what I like more, the pretty baby room on the shoe shelves! I would love shelves like those!

The room looks great! I love that you and Amie stalk each other! So funny! Can I re-introduce you to each other soon? :)

Andy and Sarah Curtis said...

This is adorable! I can't wait to see the completed room! I'm going to need some details on how to do those stripes, they look GREAT!

MELANIE said...

Room looks great! Hey--"imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!" Since we're confessing here--I totally stole that adorable idea for the camo birthday invitation...

Courtney said...

Oh my gosh!!! SUCH a cute room! Little girls have such the cutest stuff!

And when you're done with them, if you could go ahead and send your husband and in-laws over here, I have a few projects I could use some help with.
