The Nursery

We have spent an enjoyable few days putting together the nursery. It is so much to pick out paint, and put up beadboard, and to put together furniture. Our friend Cliff, who literally built his house with his own two hands, has put up beadboard in 2 other houses, so he came over to help Greg put it up in our nursery. Well, really, Cliff put up the beadboard and Greg helped him. I was in charge of the paint.

Here is what the room looked like before we started:

1 precious baby

2 ecstatic parents-to-be
3 colors of paint, with 2 coats each (and touch-ups)
111 square feet of beadboard
228 nails pounded, set, filled, and sanded

The result:

Here is a video clip of Greg & Cliff putting up the ceiling fan in the dark. It was humorous to watch their concentration - but they got it all done effectively!

That is such a cute nursery -- I might need to come see it in 3D. Can't wait for that baby to get here!
