I have to feel for my poor Hubby, I think I am driving him up the wall with my nesting demands. I have so many things I want to get done before bubba arrives and I am constantly on about the to-do list. Of course the majority of the things I have on my list are things that Hubby ends up doing. Being seven months pregnant makes it harder to climb ladders to spring clean or to dig holes in the garden for new plants.
One of the major tasks I want to accomplish before bubba arrives is repainting the kid’s room. So after nagging about it for months we finally started on it this weekend. Halfway through prepping the room and I wish we had more days left of the weekend. We’ve created a monster, the entire contents of Mister E’s room is currently in our dining and lounge rooms, (which means Mister E is sleeping in our room until it is all done). That wouldn’t be too problematic except my poor little man has gastro and is miserable and won’t sleep or eat or leave mummy’s side. We’ve started now so we have no choice but to slog away until it’s done!
I want to paint over three walls with dulux whisper white and the other wall make into a huge chalkboard to draw on. I found this website where you can get good quality paint for much cheaper than regular retail prices. We got all our white and chalkboard paint for less than half the price of the hardware store. If you need paint check them out at paint recyclers.
I found this gorgeous nursery with a chalkboard wall at Hanna Mac’s website. I’m so excited to go out and get a stack of bright coloured chalks and scribble drawings on Mister E’s new wall when it’s all done.
I also really want to have a bookcase that displays his lovely books like this one I saw at country living. So he can see all the cover artworks and choose his books for storytime. Storytime is a big part of our evenings, we sit for half an hour before bed on a little makeshift sofa and read oodles of books before bedtime.
Here are our efforts so far, I hope that this time next week I can post photos of the finished room!if you liked this post, you may also like:/span>
