Bad Idea #1: I didn't take any before pictures so I’m stuck with the pictures from listing when we bought the house. Awesome right?
In my defense, everything in this room is pretty much done other than a new shower curtain, new towels and new paint.
Bad Idea #2: I thought it was going to be a easy project. NEVER EVER SAY THAT. It always leads to bad things.
So far, this has been a pain. I had to sand down all the walls because those diamonds had some serious ridges and would be pretty obvious. Then 2 coats of Kilz and 1 coat of white paint later, I still need another coat of white paint before I start in on the stripes.
Plus, the beadboard and all the cabinets look nice and painted in the picture but in reality they were only primed and very streaky, so I've done a coat of white on those.
So now the plan is to get the painting done this weekend, skip the towels and shower curtain (because I have to make the curtain) and move on to the nursery. My goal is to get the bathroom done and the nursery painted by next week.
Bad Idea #3: Trying to get two rooms painted in a week while you’re 5 months pregnant. Ha!
But here’s the thing, my husband’s sweet family is giving me a really nice glider which he is going to pick up next week and I’d really like to be able to move it into a painted room so that I don’t have to move it back out.
Meanwhile, thanks so much for all the helpful comments on Facebook and on the blog last week about my Baby Registry Dilemma. You are all wonderful!
