I had to break the update into two parts. (Too many pictures for one post.) This one focuses on the upstairs guest room to nursery conversion. In order to get to this point there was the wet bar to computer desk conversion, but that is another story...
I was sent to get paint as my dad started to remove fixtures and outlet covers. As he did so the paint started peeling off the walls. Our townhouse is a year older than I am. It was a LOT of paint. If you look close in the pictures it looks like wallpaper peeling off the walls but it is all just layers and layers of paint. (I mentioned the unique colors we found in a previous post.) This discovery set back the painting process by about a day and a half. And oh, the DUST!!!
After we vacuumed and dusted the nursery, the Irishman decided to temporarily come out of DIY retirement and put together the crib. All it is missing is the mattress and the lovely bedding my mom is going to make for us. (Oh, and I guess the baby!)
It is all a work in progress, but we are getting there!
