Just A Small Sneek Peek

This past 3 weeks we have been working on the baby's room to get it complete so we can move furniture in there. The last owners did some remodeling that was not very complete so knowing Jon he wanted it complete and done right before we did anything. They had a closet in there and when they got rid of it they covered it up with sheet rock and did not tape or mud the cracks so you could see right where it was. Jon got it to the point where he could mud and tape the cracks and then sanded it. But because there where no other coats on it, it took a long time to do: like weeks! You have to put 3-4 coats on drywall and the previous coat has to be all dry or else it will not turn out and you have wasted your time. So now that is all done and he sanded the other day and then decided to texture the walls so they look good as new and man do they ever!! So last night I put one coat of primer on and tonight my soon to be sister-in-law helped me paint the room. Yes I will tell you what the color is but I bet most of you will be disappointed!

Since the bedding Jon and I picked out is either all really pink or blue I decided that painting the walls that color too would be too much so we went with this:

Bet you are wondering why the heck green?? Well you will see when I am finished and also why we only painted half the wall, that is another suprise in itself! I am just excited that we are almost done!!
