Baby Room - The Wall - Stage 1 Of a 346 Stage Makeover

I finished the stripes!

Let's let that sink in.

They actually weren't as hard as I thought they would be, but I did run out of tape and instead of buying more, I waited till some stripes were dry and then reused that tape. Whatever.

No I can't show you the room yet cause I have many more steps to take.
I'll list them for you:
1. Redo vintage stool
2. Paint stripes on walls
3. Redo collage wall
4. Paint other mirror
5. Paint crib
6. Paint small hutch
7. Make new crib bedding
8. Add a few pillows to the full size bed
9. Paint dresser to go in closet
10. Organize closet

I think that's it. I'll let you know if I go insane and add more stuff.

So here is my wall as it was a few weeks ago.

And here it is today.

I'll show you more about these letters in an upcoming post. I love them though!!

So one more step to completing the room bites the dust. That one was easy though. Spray painting a baby bed in 30 degree weather? Not so much. Think I'll wait on that one.

It looks great! I can't wait to see it all together! I hear you on the spray painting, I have at least 4 projects that need spray painting, but last night it was 16 degrees, and today it is not even supposed to get above freezing. Guess it will wait 2 more months for warm weather.

The stripes look fantastic! I don't think I'd have the courage or patience to even attempt.

I'm with you on the painting in this cold weather. I've got a millions (no exageration there) projects lined up waiting to be painted. Can't get motivated to freeze my toosh off. Warm fire...cold garage. You guess which one wins out!

It's looking great! You're making me feel so far behind in our nursery preparation!!!! WE bought our bedding from Pottery Barn b/c I was at a loss for what else to do! Can't wait to read more about those letters "BABY." Did you make them?
