First order of business was scratching the itch that Robert has had for months--getting the room ready! Our first step was to paint.
I am terrible at remembering to take before pictures, but picture if you will white walls and one gold textured wall. And now this...
It's not a great picture and I'll ask you again to use a bit of imagination with me. The color picked up a bit off when being taken from an iPod at 11:00 at night, but the closest comparison of color that I've been able to come up with for the walls is a sticky note! It's a very pale yellow.
Robert loves it, I love it, but best of all, Lily LOVES it! For over an hour, she ran in and out of the room saying "It's yellow now!" and "New room! I love it!". She was pretty thrilled with the whole transformation.
Painting was fun, but now I get to move onto the part I like even more--accessories! Time to pick out wall decor, curtains, and all that fun stuff that turns it from a room to her room! When Lily was born, I went all out with painting picture frames to match her bright walls--15 frames in all. This time around, I have got a thing for birds and trees and owls, with bedding that has all of those on it so we'll see where it takes me! :)
