Baby’s Room Transformation

So we are getting pretty close to being ready (as we can be!) for baby.  Part of this process was getting baby’s room together.  We had a room that would work but we weren’t big fans of the colour and the carpet was over 15 years old (and looked that way).  So it was my job to transform the ‘meh’ room into the ‘Awwwe!  That is soooo cute!’ room.  Here is that process.

This is the first coat of primer.  The original colour was a deep blue so it was hard to cover over.  In the end I did three coats of primer and two of the paint.  Also notice I have removed all the electrical face plates.  In the end I put in all new plugs and switches with the newer ‘square look’ sockets and switches.  The original ones had paint on them from a previous paint job.

I had also removed all the old carpet and baseboards before painting.  Trash from the spikey carpet things is in the closet.

After two more coats of primer the blue was almost gone.

First coat of green looked nice.  Our bulldogge Ivy was a great help.  She played foreman at the door.

Little shelves were grabbed at Zellers and fit just perfect under the window.

The project is pretty much at an end.  We just need to hang a few things on the wall and it is done.  Once again a big thanks to those who helped out.  I couldn’t have done it without you.
