At the end of the school year I decided that I would at least get the nursery painted this summer. I am VERY hopeful that THIS is our year. Sometime before this school year is over I am going to meet polar cub. If not then someone is going to have to take me to the 'funny farm'.
Now that the nieces and nephews have gone home and vacation is over, it is time to start this project. I started by cleaning out the closets, wiping down the baseboards and taping them. While I was taping I actually got a little emotional. I couldn't quite believe that I was really doing this job. It sort of seems surreal.
Here is a look at the room before:
I can't wait to be rid of this hideous ceiling fan!
The closets are now empty. They are two smaller closets. I wish it was one large closet, but we think there is some duct work between them.
You can see I don't have many clothes at all for Polar Cub. I have been so hesitant to purchase anything. Just incase we get a 'Jack' instead of a 'Jill'.
I have been starring at these paint chips for three months! I never realized there were so many different blues! I really like the second color on the bottom two chips. The only problem with them is they have quite a bit of purple. If we get a 'Jack' I don't think a purple room is a good choice. I'd be painting again before we left for China.
This is it! After many painstaking hours of starring at all of the different colors. I kept coming back to this one. I know the photo is lousy, and it really isn't the same as it looks in person, but I love this color. It's called Alaskan Range. Perfect!
Tomorrow I am going to paint the closets, just a fresh coat of white. Tuesday my friend is coming to help me make the window treatments, and hopefully by Friday we'll have the room painted. WOW!!! I am really starting to get a little excited. :o)
