So, I'm sure you've noticed that I haven't been posting lately... (Hey- don't burst my bubble! I'm pregnant and very hormonal- just ask Greg...)
Well, I've been super-duper busy with work, etsy and turning THIS-
into the nursery of my dreams.
It's still a work in progress of course, but here's how it's going:
First, we had the "simple" job of rewiring. Ha! Don't ya just love old houses? Once that was finished (finally!) we had to paint the ceiling and prime (ugh, way stinky!) and then we could get to the fun stuff- COLORS!
The top is a light shade of teal (even though in the pics it looks like seafoam green, trust me, it dried darker)
The bottom is a light shade of green.
(Thanks for your help, Trish and please don't kill me for posting this! =)
The two colors are separated with a chocolate brown stripe (my favorite part, but this took lots of effort with a few hiccups...)
I bought a cheapo light fixture and turned it cute with some brown and white paint. I also bought brown switches/outlets/plates and painted white polka dots on them as well.
Finally, today I added the piece de resistance- polka dots to the chocolate stripe. I think they look just darling!
I've also been working on all of the bedding coordinates for the room. The comforter turned out awesome (if I do say so myself)
and the peekaboo window valance also pleased my critical self! (props to my Grams for teaching me how to sew!)
Still to come- a bedskirt to match the valance, bumper, roman shades, diaper stacker, etc. Oh yeah, and we've got to get all of the door and crown moulding back on (right after we clean up all of the paint left there by the previous owner- that'll be a fun project!)
SOOOOO.... Whaddya think?
(don't forget I'm hormonal and everything! =)
