Construction Day

Today we are working on the baby room!

First we had to pick out our three colors of paint.  I thought this would be a daunting task, however I actually walked over to the wall of paint chips and got paint for the very first card I pulled out.  🙂 At least this step was easy.

Paint Colors

Then we had to fill all the holes (we previously had a headboard hanging on this wall), sand down the putty, and paint the room with our base color- Cumberland Fog.

Look at that boy work 🙂

Next, Ian sketched all the letters on the wall BY HAND! (And I thought we needed an overhead projector! I guess I underestimated my hubby the artist!)

🙂

Now, we are painting all of the lightest color letters- using the “Little Dipper” paint.

I’m sure this will take us a little while, but when the paint dries, we will go back and add in all of our dark colored letters.

HOURS LATER…

Almost finished with the walls… we’ll have to save the decorating part for next weekend. 🙂
