We have finally begun to paint! Tammy, Kim, Gina, Tiffany, David and I all painted on the nursery to get it started! (great friends!) Gina and Kim knocked out the first coat on the ceiling one night on their own, and the rest of us came in and took turns painting until everything had at least one coat!
I cannot tell you what a HUGE difference it made painting the
ceiling in that room! You see, it has wooden beams up there to hide where it used to be cut into different rooms, and they were two different colors. It really cut the room up visually…now the room just flows into one nice space with no separation!
In this picture, you can see we also came in and tore up the carpet. A great group of guys from the church came in and had it out in 30 minutes flat, then we pried up all the staples that were left from the padding, and started painting again! We are making progress!! (this is David giving the ceiling it’s 2nd coat)
Since the carpet was torn up we went on a shopping trip to find some flooring. We found this piece at Lowes, it’s called Fireside Oak and we bought it to match the existing trim in the room.
I found these cute little baskets at Walmart while grocery shopping….I picked up 9 of them to put the kiddos items in when they check into the nursery. :0)
I also found these cute bins at Garden Ridge…I’ll show you what we’ll do we these later!
I also found these soap dispensers at Walmart for $6.00 each. Right now we have the disposable hand soap dispensers and they aren’t that cute…..I love little details like this in a room. :0)
OH…I ordered two beds and a changing table from Walmart!
I can’t wait to see this whole nursery come together! :0)
Next time I hope we’ll have more of the painting done….there’s some serious pops of color going to be going on in this room soon!
