Last night, our lovely neighbor came over with paintbrush in hand and got started on the nursery. My husband got home from work and helped with the rolling.
It's about 90% finished right now. Did I mention that this neighbor has a three month old daughter? So, yeah, she had to go breastfeed her and put her to bed. She is coming back tonight to finish the trimwork.
At first, I was a bit nervous about the blue. It was a bit darker than I thought it would be. Now that the walls are mostly painted, however, I am really liking it. Also, with our painting phobia, all of the rooms in our house are white, so this color thing takes a bit of getting used to.
Of course, I'll be updating with progress pictures. There's really not much to see right now, but as soon as the paint dries, the crib is going up, the rest of the furniture will be put in place, and then I can start putting things away and doing the "fun" decorating, like hanging pictures, curtains, and putting the bedding in place. Our plan is to have the nursery pretty much "done" by the end of the weekend. I know I will still putter around and make changes, but we want it to be baby-ready soon so that I can stop obsessing about it.
