Room in Progress

This weekend has been absolutely exhausting, but so rewarding! Baby P's room is done, at least the hard labor part!

Here is what the room looked like before:


Not sure why the closet doors were blue, especially when I noticed while painting that they used to be white like everything else in the room.

Here are a couple of pics taken after sanding and painting the horrible drywall (you can see the tape, and the drywall sags on the ceiling because they installed it wrong and then covered it with a super heavy texture - uggh!). Someday we will replace the drywall, but for now, this works. We tried to cover up the tape lines on the walls as best we could with the cottage-y slats we installed and painted.


And of course a couple of pics of the baby's furniture:



Picture the room with a splash of pink, the bedding posted earlier, and voila! I am going to paint some wall hangings with the art set Josh got me for Christmas a couple of years ago (or maybe it was my birthday??). The ideas are endless!

EDIT - - some pics with a bit of the pink in there :)
