the nursery in its current state

So the furniture has been set up, the closets reorganized and No. 3 is now sleeping in the guest room so that I can take over his room and turn it into our new nursery.

Originally, I wanted to keep this room as No. 3s room. I spent A LOT of time on those stripes and it breaks my heart to paint over them.  However, taupe stripes are not in the plan for the baby’s room.

There is much to do in here:

- paint the walls {prime them first, I’m afraid}.

- buy & install a chandelier

- decide on bedding & purchase/make it {or, rather, have my mom make it}

- wallpaper the large window wall

- paint the bed

- make roman shades for the three little windows

- paint the baby’s scripture verse above the crib

- create a collage of frames on the wall above the dresser

- accessorize, accessorize, accessorize.

Lots of work to do, but I’m looking forward to it.

Unfortunately, I have a husband who cares about my well-being and the well-being of our baby, and he refuses to let me paint the walls. I am at his mercy for this step so we’ll see when I can convince him to do it.  Actually, I am thankful for his protective side because I can often overwork my poor little body and painting this room would surely not be the best for me.

I’ll keep posting photos as the room progresses.

  3. I can't wait to see it all done, I am sure it will be just darling...and I can't believe you hand painted all those stripes, what a labor of love! I did a few on one wall and it took me forever...it makes me sad for you to paint over them...What a nice husband to help you out and care for your well being! ;)

  4. Hi! Great post, must at least feel good to have a to do list ready!!! Too bad, those stripes are pretty awesome...but I'm excited about the wallpaper you mentioned:) So what exactly are the rules for painting while you're pregnant? Is it not all? Or it would be ok if you had good ventilation and a low or no/Voc paint? (Just wondering for later, I'm definitely the painter in the family!)
