Nursery Update #3

You can see Update #1 here and Update #2 here

Jason has been painting like crazy - we wanted a Forest Friend theme. Originally we were going to paint the entire wall green with a blue ceiling for the sky and the exposed beams brown. Then Jason got creative and came up with the idea for a tree line where the green and the blue meet. I have to admit I was a little hesitant but let him do what he wanted to do. I am SO SO glad I did - I came home and it took my breath away. I LOVE IT. We still have more finishing to do, the trim needs to be stained and put up, the ceiling fan needs to be installed and of course the carpet needs to be ordered.

This is where our walls and ceiling meet - you can see the tree line here and an exposed beam. Also the wiring for the ceiling fan.

This is the inside of the closet - also built by Jason. We're keeping the inside white to keep it bright once the doors are on.

This view is from the door facing the window wall. You can't see it too well but the top window has a window cling that looks like stained glass. There will be trim around the windows as well. Plus more of the tree line.

This is a better view of the closet. The cubby hole above the closet will have a door installed on it and it will be painted green as well. The doors all still need to be stained and none of the trim is up yet either.

Just another view of the tree line that Jason has been working on. The exposed beams will also be trimmed to get rid of that white line you see.

We are also buying a few wall decals - these are the ones we have decided on so far:

We're thinking this will go above the doorway.

This will probably be below the windows

These will hang on the branches of the trees

And these will find a home somewhere
