Almost therePosted: February 11, 2009 Filed under: Dangerous Book for Boys 7 Comments
Since we now have less than 2 weeks until my merciful doctor is going to induce me, the Romgi and I are trying to get our house as ready as we can for the Bwun – and for not having time to do anything else. So yesterday we (mostly the Romgi) painted the nursery.
We saw an episode of some cool show on HGTV a while ago where this masterful painter/decorator/designer guy transformed a basement room into an underwater playroom. It was amazingly awesome; he painted the walls several colors of blue, with the darkest at the bottom, and blended the colors as they progressed up so that it looked like being underwater. Super-ultra-great. Our room was based on that idea – only, instead of water, it’s outer space, or the sky…whichever…the ceiling and top of the walls are the darkest blue, and it goes down to a sky-ish blue. The Romgi did an expert job of blending the colors together. I think it looks fabulous.
What do you think?
There’s still some touchup work to be done, and then the rest of the furniture (on the other side of the room) needs to be moved back, and there’s no mattress in that crib…but for the most part, we now have an awesome nursery to bring the Bwun home to.
Hooray! Now if I can just have the Bwun!
The nursery is turning out beautifully, Mika! I love the space theme, it’s so unique and fun. I would totally enjoy that theme for either gender, it makes me think of Space Mountain :)
pretty much awesome.
I saw these super cool vinyl shapes of rockets and robots at Roberts that would look great in the room. I like the painting it looks great.
That’s a really nice job! My compliments to the Romgi. Hope you can get through this and have your beautiful little boy. I’m counting the days til I can come visit!
I add my bravo.
The room is fabulous! I love it! I wish I could paint my boys room…the military housing people frown on residents painting.
