I got to apply the first paint to the wall, and I sent a little message to the baby!
Applying the Yellow top portion We had this handy dandy paint stick, which stored the paint in the handle so you didn’t have to keep bending down to a tray to dip the roller in! Mike climbed the stepladder with a small brush to fill in around frames I only used this for a minute to see how it went on.
Applying the Green bottom color, and filling in the Yellow Steve had the job of primary green painter While Mike filled in the yellow on top and Rachel continued to roll Yellow Rachel and Steve filling in the Green on the bottom A finished corner! The space in between is where the border will go.
You’ve heard of Bob the Builder? Here’s Mike the Painter! And wearing the appropriate shirt too!
Day 2 – the Border Our first little section of border up! The paint match at Home Depot was fantastic! A closeup
Rachel sponging smooth the border See how nicely we got it to match up? And how good it looks with the paint?
An easy small piece on the other side of the closet A tougher, longer piece on the other side of the door The completed “door” wall The crib will go along this wall
We actually ran out of border, and had to run to Babies R Us in Danbury to pick up another one before we did these strips on either side of the window. Here Rachel is erasing the light pencil markings we were using to try and hang the border straight.
Once done with the border, we put Pooh stickers on the closet doors, bedroom door, dresser, and window frame. The whole closet Close-up on each door
