This week was all about the paint and a little about decor. When we moved into the house in August, the wood floors were painted light blue and the walls were white. This 10'x10' room will be used as the nursery for any future babes so the M.O. has been to keep the paint and big pieces neutral. And have fun with the floors. I mean, how many times in life do you get to paint wood floors and not feel bad about it? So naturally we went with stripes.
They're amazing. I wish I could paint the floors in every room. I do get to have fun with the guest bedroom because it too has painted floors... maybe polka dots and stars? Ha. Our painter would love me.
The other thing that happened this week?
The Navy Fleur Chinoise crib skirt arrived.
I had the seamstress sew it in panels so that I can move it up as the mattress drops, ensuring that it will always be the perfect length.
Not going to lie, major second thoughts surrounded this fabric. I'm really happy that I went with it in the end–I actually love the colors and that it isn't too girly.
Also, this happened this week.
He should make his first appearance in the next two weeks.
Now on to the fun stuff... art. See you next week!
