guess who?

Guess who decided to surprise me by fixing the paint in the nursery and completing the painting of all the trim, built in bookcases and doors?!?




I'll give you a hint, he is related to the baby-to-be!




A couple of weeks ago, we were here- picking yellow after yellow after yellow. After some paint expert consultations at our neighborhood paint store, we finally settled on "Lightning Bolt", the perfect yellow for the bedding.



Then we were here: exactly what I wanted! Pale, creamy yellow, just barely into the yellow category, but matching the bedding and standing out against the white furniture.







All we have left to do is a very brief touch-up of those spots where the trim got onto the wall, and then we're done! I've been promised that rugs will be unrolled, and cribs will be built, and curtains will be hung this weekend!





Now we're here! Freshly painted ceiling, walls, trim, bookcases, doors and everything else! I can hardly believe it! Maybe this weekend I'll even have some actually-looking-like-a-nursery pictures!

Oh my goodness, I can't wait to see the crib and the rug and the curtains! Hurray for Josh!

I do not have a nursery, and so I just go around looking at other peoples' lovely nurseries and coveting them quietly. Yours is very nice, and I will be back to live vicariously through you via pictures this weekend... that is, assuming I'm not in labour.
