So we have (practically) finished the baby room. I think it looks great but I am still not loving the color...it's a bit much but I am not repainting as much as I would like to (if someone is feeling ambitious let me know). We'll call this lessons learned: just because you like the picture in the catalog:
doesn't mean you should copy it, stick to what you think. I would have done that we would have a mellower ballet slipper light pink up instead of some shade of cotton candy....I think it's the lighting because it is the exact same color as the picture above, weird.
I also don't think it doesn't look quite so bright in person but maybe that's me trying to make myself feel better. Oh, well. Everything else I think turned out just as I had imagined!
Andrew painted the crib white, thanks honey!
I craigs-listed a new arm chair, sewed curtains, bought bedding,
and my personal favorite, this chandelier that my Dad came over and put up for us and even added a dimmer which will come in handy late at night when you want light but not very much.
The only thing left to do is hang a couple pictures which I still to get white frames for, make a pillow for the arm chair and add her name to the walls.
Now if this baby isn't a girl, we're in BIG trouble
