baby room revealed!

Oh boy oh boy oh boy oh boy!!!  Dave and I have been so excited to share pictures of the baby room but wanted to wait until it was complete.  As of last night, it’s finished!  Well, as finished as it’s going to be  for now – we have some ideas for wall art, we might get the foot stool for the chair, and we want to swap out a lampshade.  But it’s pretty much finished.

First, the before: bright green with a chalkboard wall painted on one side of the room.

That sucker was a bit of a bugger since it was texturized differently than the rest of the wall.  Luckily, our brother-in-law Bruce had the solution and he mudded a thin layer over the chalkboard.  Then Dave sanded it before we painted.

After!

Thankfully, the chalkboard wall disappeared – you can’t even tell where it was.

And all complete!

The bookshelf with our owl friend (we’re hoping to find a gray lampshade for him):

And a close-up of the little stuffed guys.  These are actually bowling pins for babies from Restoration Hardware – it was Dave’s father’s day present (you can see the bowling ball in the basket on the bottom shelf).  How super cute are they?

And the two baskets in the room – one by the owl lamp and one on the changing table.  My mom made these!

It feels so good to have the room finished.  I just want to sit in that chair by the window and read.  Can’t wait until our little man joins us!
