It’s been way too long since I’ve posted anything on the blog. Sorry. Somehow I worked up the motivation to take some pictures of Josie’s nursery this morning. We still have a few projects to finish in here, but, I must say, I’m thrilled with how everything has turned out.
Sal did a wonderful job painting in here (he even painted the ceiling and the closet we converted into a changing station). I actually sent him home from the hospital to work on it the night before we brought her home so it would be finished in time. He also installed a new ceiling fan with a light (there was no light before). Unfortunately, the bulb just went out and it’s not a standard size so these pics are a little dark and blurry. My apologies.
Josephine Lucile was born July 19. She’s an angel baby. Seriously. She sleeps through the night. She started out sleeping five-hour stints and increased it to 10-plus by about two-and-a-half months. We are truly blessed to have such wonderful children.
My friend Jen did an amazing job sewing the ruffled curtains. I absolutely love them. She really outdid herself. There’s a half-inch difference in the floor-to-ceiling height between the two windows that she compensated for without making it look too obvious. We also had to be a little sneaky hanging them to make up for the fact that one window butts up against a wall.
Future projects include painting Josie’s mantel letters, mounting her artwork, and hanging some tissue pompoms above the crib. We’d also like to hide the baby monitor cord and possibly add quarter-round moulding to hide the funky spaces between the floor and the wainscoat. And, at some point, I’d like to build an upholstered cushion seat over the brick hearth and possibly a bookshelf within the firebox.
