Well, the baby’s room is officially painted and paneled. And we only lost a refrigerator full of food in the process!
I’m really proud of the room so far, but I can’t take credit for any of the work. All I did was pick the color and the finishes…and then I sat on my butt and caught up on DVRed shows while Chris slaved away. Those paint fumes will get you, you know.
Here’s a before picture from when we bought the house…
The first step was the paint testing. Remember when I made a huge deal about my favorite color in the whole wide world? Well, we didn’t use it. I don’t know if it was the lighting in the room or the way it looked with the trim, but I hated it in real life! Note to self: don’t make bold paint color statements on your blog until the room is completely finished.
With that being said, we ended up going with Restoration Hardware’s Bay Laurel instead, and I absolutely love it!
Here’s my personal handyman starting the paneling…
He’s quite meticulous…but I’m thankful for that.
He’s also a huge geek.
Last night I came home from running a few errands to this…
I can’t believe how perfectly it turned out.
With the walls complete and the plastic up off the floor, we were both anxious to start building the beautiful crib that’s been in a box in our den for two weeks. Torture!
I think someone is starting to understand what it going on here…
More pictures to come once we get the glider!
