The Nursery: First Draft

Remember the day off I took on Friday? The one during which I wasn't going to do anything but kick back and relax? Surprise! I didn't really take it as easy as I'd intended. Or the weekend for that matter. I give you, The Nursery: The Rough Mix.

Its nowhere close to being done but at least you'll have an idea of the colors we used. The furniture should be on its way and I have some stenciling to do. So, more pictures soon. And seriously, what's with me and the decorating lately?

Ooh- ahh! It's all Caribbean color theme. Hey, maan, I like it. The bebe, she will, too! What you need in there is a duck!

It's beautiful...refreshing..yet calm...all at once..but then again, I expected no less from you and Beth.

Fr: the pot that called the kettle black
(I am still working...out of town mind you... but working and will be doing so for the next several hours)

cheers to the three of you

The green isn't really that green, swear.

Ooooh. Aaaahh. That's really nice.

So, can we call you Christopher Lowell now? Wait. Your name IS Chris. Hmmm. We never see you and Christopher Lowell together. It's all very suspicious!

I love blue and green together. Pretty room!

Good job daddy! I should email you a pic of mine, it's robin's egg blue and sage green with a white chair rail. I still love it after four years of spending much time in that room.

So did you end up painting while it was raining outside, or were you smart and wait for a nice day so the room had ventilation? ;)

Posted by: Snidget at May 4, 2005 09:39 PM

Very a good way :)

I likes it! I likes it!

Chris, it sounds like you're nesting.

Posted by: jen at May 4, 2005 10:14 PM

Looks good - love the idea of a step by step series to keep me tuning in. Can't wait to see what's next!

ooooh pretty!

we did Cam's room with a smurf blue ceiling and obnoxious sun yellow walls... it screams kids room. not that you asked.

Posted by: monique at May 4, 2005 11:08 PM

wow, that's really cool :)

Posted by: Emily at May 4, 2005 11:32 PM

Welcome to and relaxation is a thing of the past. But, on the bright side...that is one awesome looking nursery! I love those colors!

Wow, that looks great. Personally I am not a fan of traditional animated character themed nurseries in pink and blue. So I doubly admire your sense of style.

LOVE the ceiling color. :-)

Posted by: Fraulein N at May 5, 2005 10:33 AM

Vicki is right, it's a Caribbean theme! Add a couple of palm trees, a beach and Bob Marley and the Beanette is totally ready rock this world.

But seriousely, I love the colors. Can't wait to see more pics WITH furniture :)

I'm so jealous of the molding. Nicely done! And, if you're still interested in being crafty, I've got some work for you.

Posted by: bmh at May 5, 2005 12:16 PM

Awwwwwww, he's sympathy nesting!

Seriously, those are some gorgeous colors. Beanette is going to have a kick diaper nursery :) (Have to start watching the naughty words...apparently she can hear *G*)

Posted by: Pixie at May 6, 2005 12:15 PM

Ohhhhh I LOVE those colors!! Lucky baby ;o)

Posted by: Leslie at May 6, 2005 04:13 PM

I LOVE it! It is going to be awesome with Pooh stuff! And it is called NESTING! It happens when you are expecting a Bebe! And you want her to be so happy, welcome, and belong in your home. Her own little space! I love it!
