Weekend Project

Thanks to my wonderful parents and sister, we were finally able to begin working on the baby room!  This is great as we have just under 10 weeks until my due date...2 more months!!!  We finally got to the point where the room was cleared out and there was a free weekend for all of us and the need became great enough to get stuff done.  

Since I had to work Saturday and the painting would start while I was at work, Pat and I taped the room in preparation so that it would be easy for them to just get started.

Here is our blank canvous...
 And when I got home from work the room was painted!  All that was needed was a short trip to pick up some more paint and touch up some missed spots.  The lighting makes the color look a little different, you will have to wait to see the final product in natural light at the end.
 The following day, my wonderful artistic mom started painting the tree in the corner of the room.  You can go here to see the inspiration for this tree and the idea for what the rest of it will have.  This will be the next project I will need to complete for the room.
 Now with a little shading
 The finished product!
 Plus a little personal touch I wanted to sister and I had the idea at the same time and it turned out great!
 Sunday evening, my family had to drive back home, so Pat and I got to assemble the crib and put it in place!  Finally, we have had this crib sitting in its box in the living room for almost 2 months now!

I love the crib and can't wait to see the bedding my mom is making for it.
 This morning I took some pictures in natural light to show the finished product and the best look at the color we chose.  Plus a nice little extra piece that my sister painted for us before she left.

I found this quote when I was looking for ideas on a Winnie the Pooh themed room.  I didn't want to go overboard and have stuff everywhere, I just wanted little touches like the tree and small things here and there.  This quote caught my eye and made me a little teary eyed when I first found it.  What is great about it is she had found the same quote when she was looking for ideas as well.

So now we just need to finish the leaves project, hang a little something my mom and sister made, and a few other little surprises my Grandma is making and the room will be complete!  At least complete craft project wise.  I hope you like it!
