I wanted to thank you all so very much for your thoughtful and kind comments on my last post. THANK YOU! We are still not 100% and now K is sick, too, but I wanted to stop by quick to share a little project going on in our home. I was going to wait until it was all done but I started this in January and I know that it will still be at least another month or two before completion, so I wanted to give a little sneak peek for now.
*Just a little warning - these are probably the worst pictures I have ever posted on here. I don't have a good wide angle lens so I had to use the lens that came with my camera body and to make it even more fun, the sun wouldn't come out at all so it was just a recipe for disaster. Yikes, maybe I should just not post when I am sick and can't think straight....*
The following are before pictures of the girls' room. When we moved in we just put in K's bed, C's changing table and a dresser any old way because we knew we would be re-doing the room soon. As you can see there is no trim around the base of the walls, that will be installed when we have new floors put in. Oy, I mentioned how much of a 'fixer uppper' this place is, before, right?
I will get try to get some pictures this week of the current state of their room. The furniture is temporarily out - the bed is in our bedroom and the changing table is in the living room. The walls and ceiling have been primed and painted with a matte white zero VOC paint and now we are now just awaiting our safe coat glaze to begin the fun part - LAZURING. I can't wait, but I admit I am also so afraid of it. I don't want to mess it up (think positive thoughts for me, please). I plan on painting their room the traditional peach blossom color of the Waldorf kindergarten classrooms. It is so warm, safe and inviting and that's exactly how I want the girls' room to feel for them.
Wow, looking at these pictures reminds me of how small their room is, I have no clue how we will fit two beds in there with that closet that takes up a whole wall. Any ideas?
I hope to be feeling better for my post on Wednesday and will respond to the last two posts either today or tomorrow. Thanks for bearing with me!!
Wishing you all a wonderful Monday!
