I certainly hope that everyone had a relaxing, productive, fun, whatever-you-wanted-it-to-be Memorial Day weekend. I definitely got what I wanted. Thursday night was the first night that I slept really well last week, and then again on Friday night. Needless to say, I DID NOT need multiple naps on Saturday and I was a little ball of energy. We went and picked up the furniture and my awesome sister-in-law Denise and I got to painting. I have to whore out Sherwin Williams' Duration paint. It goes on so smooth and I am spoiled because of it. I have used it on our living room and BL's room so far and I can promise you I will use it on any room I paint for the rest of my life.
So without further ado, I give you the almost-finished product that is Baby Luc's nursery:
This photo is dedicated to a wonderful friend, avid reader, and eventual guest poster, Colleen:
I apologize for the horrid lighting in this next photo. No, Paul did not take this one. I did. And I didn't realize how bad the lighting was until I went to Photoshop with it. I was too tired to take another one by that time, but I think you get it. Nightstand, window and part of the crib with a guest appearance by the piggy bank:
Next up is the GORGEOUS crib and bedding. The furniture is all the Munire Urban collection and the bedding is from Glenna Jean's Sweet Potato Collection (Mud Puddle). No mattress yet, but I had to see how the bedding looked:
Combo unit, which will eventually double as the changing station as well. Featuring a little light that gives off the perfect glow for middle-of-the-night changes and feedings without blinding both the baby and I. The glider will eventually go in the corner. When we get one, that is.
View from corner where glider will be, looking out:
So there you have it. Yes, it was a VERY productive weekend at the Luc household. Of course the nursery will be filled with all kinds of goodies after the showers, and I still have some work to do. I have a large shelf from Ikea, canvases with his name painted on them and vinyl wall art to hang among other things. I will keep updating as things get done. I love how the paint color (Bathe Blue, by the way) shows up in each photo. In natural night, it is very bright and vibrant, and in softer light and shadows it is calming and soft. For now, Paul and I can't stop peeking in the room as we walk by.
