Today I finally went and bought the wallpaper glue I needed, dug out the Wallies cut-outs, and set to finishing the wall décor in the baby’s room. I’m so happy to have some color in there! The green wall now sports a Beatrix Potter “border” mid-way up the wall. I have rearranged the room, pulled out the baby gear, and cleaned everything. Now Baby Hamilton can arrive anytime! (Well…after June 6th would be best so that I can attend Kenny & Becky’s wedding!)
Just a glimpse of the rest of the room. For those of you who don’t know, Ben made the crib. It is definitely a unique, heirloom type piece. I helped with the sanding (which me grateful that I am not a wood-worker by trade!)
While it is nothing special, and certainly not professional, I feel a little surge of pride in the completion of this project. I painted for the first time. I measured the wall and marked off my border with only minor “assistance” from Elaine. Never having done wallpaper or any wall décor, I finished it “all by myself.” I still want to stitch a basic valance for the window, but Mom is bringing the fabric to the wedding, so I can’t work on it yet.
