I know, here is another new project started. Don’t worry, I have about three more on my list I may begin before I finish any of them. This one is a big one.
Now that we are well past the half way point of the pregnancy, Jess and I are ready to begin work on Wally’s room. Up to this point, this room has been designated “The Guest Room.” It was a pretty simple design of white (sort of) ceiling and light green walls. Here are a few pictures of the room before we started.
Jess started us off by putting plastic down over the hardwood floors and taping off the base boards. Since we are pretty much going to paint every part of this room, it was just easier to cover the whole floor. If you look close (or click for a bigger image) you can see Abby on the left helping flatten out the plastic.
Abby supervises while Jess finishes the last of the baseboards.
After writing both Abby and Wally’s names in white paint, we put Abby in her painting outfit and let her have at it. The solid wall and the wall with the closet are going to be a nice white. The ceiling will eventually have stripes so for now we are painting the whole ceiling white.
All that is left is the window wall. This will be the most fun as we are going to use chalkboard paint. Stay tuned as this project is a priority so I should have it updated soon.
