Well, we've made even more progress. I'm so excited. I can't tell you how many times I started crying while we were working on the room. I would just look at the room, get an overwhelming feeling of warmth, and then cry out "oooooh, Hunk!" Every time. Ok, I admit, maybe not everytime. There was one time that we were a little snappy at eachother while trying to get the curtain rod level. But every other time it was, "ooooh, Hunk!" and he would just look at me, smile and laugh, and hug me.
So, to my friends and family... consider this your warning. The pictures that you are about to see will evoke intense feelings of pleasure. Go get your Kleenex!
would make the room feel smaller, but It doesnt feel that way at all. I think that they actually make the room feel a little larger, especially since the curtains almost touch the ground. As you can see below, the room looks adorable with the curatains closed too! It lets in the perfect amount of light during the day!
So, I love the curtains opened, and I love them closed! We really lucked out, they are having a sale at Linens 'N' Things, and the curtains were all on sale. We've got 4
panels on each window, so I don't think we could have gotten them if it weren't for the sale. We were going to put a rod over the closet too, but unfortuantely I think the closet is too close to the window for it to look right. So, since we have another set of holdback, we're going to put them on top of the closet frame and go back to Linens 'N' Things for a long scarf to drape around the frame. Adorable!
So, the To Do list now consists of:
Sand and paint trim
Put up shelves
Buy changing table
Buy new outlet covers Buy new light switch
Buy 2 small tables
Mattress (crib and co-sleeper)
Put in over head light
Pick up glider

I've started another little sweater with some more RYC Cashsoft DK in Sweet. I love how this stuff knits up!
Of course the color is really off in this picture, but I don't feel like fiddling with it.
So, I'll keep you updated as the room progresses, the knitting progresses, and the baby progresses!
