Well, at least I've started
Saturday, July 22, 2006
Okay, so I haven't done too much on Operation Pooh. However, we did find a Pali crib on Craigslist for $90! Man I love Craigslist, did I mention posting an ad was free? ?

And yes, that's it leaning up against the wall in one of the shots. Anyway, as you can see from the photos I've moved most of the stuff out of the "soon to be" nursery to one of our other bedrooms. Unfortunately that other bedroom was being used as sort of a junk room and therefore is now both a guest room and a junk room. Fortunatley my office which is yet another bedroom in the house (to answer the question that probably popped in your head, we have...five) is actually pretty empty so I think I'll eventually get some of the junk moved into it's closet so that we can return that room into a real guest room.

And as a longer term project we have another bedroom/den downstairs that Stef currently uses as her home office that we want to get a day bed into and convert to a second guest room/office. Nothing like having projects to keep me busy in retirement.

Anyway, so with all the big stuff out of the Pooh room I'm going to start masking off the walls and trim with the hope that the following week I'll start painting. I took a close up of the border that will separate the "earthy" color (the color sample sticking out on the bottom of the border) which will be the lower walls and the sky and clouds (the sample on the top) that will be both the upper walls and the ceiling.

Thankfully next week is the week our biweekly cleaning lady and crew comes (on Tuesday), so having the room empty like this is great since they'll really be able to vacuum it completely and clean off all the trim and everything else. So on Wednesday I'll start masking things up and will buy the paint on Thursday and start painting on Friday.

    Cute.... I love it. Are you getting the bedding from target? they have a really cute nightlight & nesting baskets & lightswitch cover to match that border. The mobile is a must... even at 20 months old our daughter loves it.

    cant wait to see it all done..
