Painting the nursery

While I was up in Virginia, Tony was very busy getting the baby's room ready for painting. He got all the fixtures down, holes filled, and the entire surface primed with the stinky primer during the weekend while I was gone. Not sure how much of a help Logan was, but he was definitely interested in the plastic sheeting and all the painting gear!

Once I got back, we picked right up with a light blue base coat. I picked the perfect shirt for painting, it was like being a weatherman in front of the digital screen! We taped off some wide vertical stripes, and added a brighter, shiny finished, sky blue. It looks really great, we are quite proud of ourselves. We don't paint very much, in fact, this is the only room in this house we have painted so far! We managed to paint one room in VA and never did get around to any painting in AL! But, I figure we won't have many nurseries to paint in our lifetime, so we might as well do it up right.
