Well, the past week brought a little nursery progress. No thanks to me. My motivation seems to have left the building. While I had a list of projects to work on over the weekend, I accomplished none of them. Although I did catch up on Downton Abbey and read a book.
But, that’s a whole other story for another day.
In progress news, we decided on the Jenny Lind crib in white for Baby Dub. We ordered the crib and mattress on Amazon on Monday, and the items were on our doorstep on Wednesday and Thursday. (Since we have a Prime membership, shipping was free.)
I was so darn excited, I convinced Ryan to get it all set up in the nursery.
Franco and Lola helped. They are quite the little worker bees.
It went together really quickly and the puggies approve.
Then over the weekend, while I twiddled my thumbs, my fairy godpeople (aka my mother-in-law and father-in-law) painted the baby’s room.
You can tell from the above pictures that the new color is quite a bit lighter than the old color, which I painted last January. I thought it was too dark from the beginning, but I tried to talk myself out of it. In the end, it was never quite right and made the room cave-like. When my in-laws offered to paint the room, I jumped at the chance before they could change their minds.
And I’m glad I did! The new color is a lot lighter and brighter, which makes the room look enormous.
I decided to go with Martha Stewart’s Sharkey Grey – color matched to Behr Ultra Premium Plus.
The color pops well with all the white, but it’s plenty manly for our little guy.
So, that’s the nursery progress. I purchased all the curtain fabric online and it should be here this week. Let’s hope I can get my rear in gear and get going in this room. I don’t think I can count on other people to do it all for me. (No matter how much I hope.)
