The Beginning of the End

Today is the beginning of the Guest Room/Baby Room Remodel. It is not really a remodel, but really a redecoration. So far today I have pulled the sad ole decrepit sewing machine, desk, and rocking chair out of the soon to be nursery and they are currently residing in our tiny den. There is already a mattress in there (the nasty box springs are outside under the carport), but the nursery is basically empty.

We didn't really think ahead when we got the crib and we went ahead and put it together. Can you really blame us? We were just so excited and since we only had hand written directions from Laura's dad we were just so proud of ourselves for setting it up in about 30 minutes. We will just have to scoot it into the middle of the room, cover it with a tarp (it is holding most of the baby stuff we have gotten so far) and walk around it.

Now I am just sitting here working up the strength to head out into the beautiful day (it has been raining since last night) to buy myself some odorless/safe for pregnant mommy paint to start painting the trim, windows, doors, walls. Wish me luck and I will be back later with some updates on how the day is going.

Yay! I can't wait to see pics of the in progress/finished product. I am sure it will be adorable. We just started work on BB's nursery too. Last night I taped everything off so we can start priming the walls. Official painting will start next weekend! I'm soo excited!
