It's Finished

2 1/2 years ago we planned a nursery for our coming baby. Two babies later it's finally (well, mostly) finished. We added wainscoting and put up all new trim (in green). The walls and ceiling are blue with clouds, dragonflies, and bees. We have butterflies and dragonflies hanging from the ceiling. We also replaced the light fixture and blinds.

We do still have to putty/paint the finish nail holes and hang curtains that my mom made for the room when she came for Sandy's birth. It won't take long to finish, but we started another project....

And have to get the garage roof finished before the weather turns.

Wonder what our kids have been doing during all of these projects? Well, the other night while Bill was on the roof and I was cleaning up shingles, Sandy painted in the driveway...


And then tried to move indoors before being quickly whisked into the bathtub...


She did create a masterpiece that we mailed to Grandma & Grandpa Bair and is now on their fridge. But she actually spent most of the night arranging her painting space. She would line up her paint pots all in a row on the back porch while I filled the wheelbarrow with shingles. Then I would take the wheelbarrow to the front of the house and Sandy would follow, line up all her painting pots and start painting just as I headed back to the backyard and the process would start all over.


Abby just slept.

It looks great! Did you stencil the bugs, plants and clouds on or are they decals?

The room looks great. I'm impressed with anyone who uses the word "wainscoting" and actually knows what it is. I had to google it. Thus why my kids' rooms have no more than ikea curtains and a crib to make it a "nursery."

Also, so sorry about Sage. May her treatments go well.
