The nursery

Sunday afternoon we put the finishing touches on little miss’ nursery.  A couple weeks ago we finished assembling all the furniture, then I was able to put up her books, toys, stuffed animals, blankets, clothes etc.  I had been putting off hanging pictures and her name because I was being lazy.  But I finally convinced myself it wouldn’t be too difficult so sucked it up and did it with a helping hand from C.  The room turned out better than I could have hoped!  Considering I have a fairly lame sense of style and design, I’m pretty proud of it. C made the comment the other night that it’s the best looking room in our house, and I’d have to agree with him.  Here are some pictures throughout the process and the finished product.

Only partly primered - painting was definitely the worst part of the entire process
