Here's the little nook in the nursery where the dormer window bumps out. Don't mind the various tools scattered throughout the room, please.
The wall color is Martha Stewart's Sea Anemone, which seems to photograph somewhat toothpaste-y but is actually soothing but bright in person. We decided to go with it on a whim instead of the light blues we'd been considering and I think it's perfect.
Here's our delightfully flat, non-popcorn ceiling, just waiting for its new fan (arriving tomorrow, right, Amazon?):
The closet still needs a lot of work (we're trying to find a "system" that will work for us) and I don't want to put the bifold doors back on there... I'm thinking about a canvas curtain of some sort. The bifold doors that are ALL over this house don't seem to work well - they're always askew and off track and I hate to start off in this room with closet doors that are doomed for failure.
Jesse and our neighbor Rob (THANK YOU, ROB!) installed the floors themselves over the past two weekends. They're bamboo and I am OBSESSED.
Once the ceiling fan and lights are installed, we are ready to finally start decorating. With less than 3 weeks until my due date, we're kind of down to the wire here. I'm also hoping that the "nesting instinct" that I keep reading about will kick in at some point (My sister on nesting: "Suddenly you just clean and you like it? That seems like fiction"). And so far, for me, it is. I'd much rather nap than nest (or even slog through my yes-I'm-still-working inbox).
Stick with us until the next update and stay homey!
