Nursery (Progress Report)

Last weekend, I started on the DIY projects in the soon-to-be nursery. Here’s photo of the work in progress:

Nursery In Progress

I’ve now managed to get two coats of paint on the brown stripes. To make sure the coverage is even, I’ll be applying coat #3 and then re-masking for the pink stripe application. Once that’s completed, I’ll add the chair rail around the room (lumber already purchased).

    Are you having fun doing it? It’s so much work, and I always find I love projects like that the first few hours and then…not so much. The beauty of being the pregnant one is that I can’t paint so I’ll get to direct and not do. :)

    Can’t wait to see the final product!

    Honestly, it depends on the day.

    This evening I finished coat #3 of the brown paint. I was then able to pull off all of the tape and feel a sense of accomplishment. Overall, yes, I do enjoy this sort of thing. I’ve done numerous built-ins, additional trim work, and the like since we moved into the new house in late 06 (I designed the house too… I always think I would have enjoyed being an architect). But, I also have a tendency to have projects drag on and on… as I’m usually busy with other things.

    Of course, this time I have a countdown to remind me of a “due date” (literally). :-)
