Nursery Project - Day 1

We officially started the nursery yesterday, and these projects ALWAYS take a LOT longer than I expect. You say to me that you want to put up a shelf in the room... and I'm thinking - no big deal, right? Wrong.

I should have known better when the ladders, levels, 3 different saws, hammers, screws, and nails a-plenty came out...

In the end though - we're happy with the progress so far... here is what it looked like as of last night.

This is the before... even before we put up the shelves on the wall behind the chair.

The room after clearing out all of the craft room items.... except that the closet needs to be cleaned out too.

This is how Maggie helps... she's our lookout.

This is how Missy helps... by holding down the couch.

John securing the shelf to the supports.

Me putting wood filler into the cracks and holes... so that we can paint it.

The shelf spanning the entire back wall of the room - sorry for the blurry photos... apparently I need my big camera at all times.

 A close up view of the shelf... there is detailing around the front and on the braces. It's going to be very pretty when it is all painted white.

The chair railing will go up one evening this week, and then we'll get started painting those items. The bedding will arrive on Wednesday, and from there the big painting party for the walls will happen this weekend. Is it sick that I'm so excited about painting the walls? I absolutely LOVE to do the cut-in painting around the edges... so if anyone ever needs me... you know where I am.
