Nursery progress

May 26th, 2012

Since so many of you live elsewhere, I’m going to try to post pictures of the nursery as we get it ready. Nursery. It still feels so weird to say.

I forgot to take a total “before” picture before we painted, but if I dig one up from who-knows-when I’ll post it. In the meantime, here’s what the room looked like after we Darek painted it and cleared out most of the years of “I don’t know what to do with this so I’ll throw it in the back room” stuff.

Then we spent half a day putting up tree decals (and by “we” I mean “Darek,” because at that point I was already too exhausted and sore to be much help; I think we had done some errands that morning or something). I knew they were going to look cool, but they turned out better than I thought. We’re pretty happy with these.

The next morning, Darek put the cribs together. I’d heard horror stories about cribs being a pain to assemble, but he had both of them together in about 45 minutes. We love these, too. This picture is also more accurate of the wall color, since our yucky yellow light was casting a tint on the previous two. (New light fixture going in soon!)

That was 2 weeks ago and we haven’t done much else to the room that’s picture-worthy yet. More soon (ish – maybe?)!
