Just another view of the room (into what will be the reading nook area). I have pictures of all the steps along the way, too. I'm getting them printed for a scrapbook. This room was a mess for a really long time before it started looking like a nursery!
Cheap, cheap labor! Even Jacob helped wax and buff a section of the hardwood floor! I LOVE the smell of Johnson's Paste Wax! It reminds me of my childhood and "ice skating" down our hallway in our socks after the floor had been buffed. We had a much larger (and noisier) buffer back then, and it covered alot of area much quicker than this little thing!
After: Here's proof that this IS Micalee's room! I painted wooden letters, then added little garden things to them. Can you see the bird in the nest on the "C"? Because we're choosing to name our little girl such a unique (we came up with it) name, we had to make sure she could still have something personalized.
Here are my favorite pictures (the group of four) that I got fromTarget! I waited and waited for them to go on sale (everything at Target eventually goes on sale), but they never did! So, I had to have them anyway. They were really the basis of the entire nursery. Girls can do bugs, too!
I know, you've seen the tree! But now you can see it with the rug down in front of the crib. It is such a thick, soft rug and with the two-toned green, looks (and feels) like grass!
