Audrey's Nursery

Audrey's nursery is definitely a work in progress. Evan has worked so hard painting, adding new light fixtures, new doors, crown molding, baseboards, and new outlets. Thanks to Sandra's decorating expertise and Evan's remolding abilities Audrey is going to have a darling nursery.

Saturday morning began with a quick run to home depot and lots of painting. The walls and ceiling were painted a creamy white with the one wall painted pink.


Sandra suggested to paint the one wall pink. We matched the light pink dot on the polka dot pattern on her bedding. Soon, this wall will have 3 large full print damask prints going down the wall off centered. I am anxious to see how it looks.


All the crown molding and baseboards

Sandra also suggested having one painted piece in the nursery. Just after our meeting I found this display table at a children's clothing store that was going out of business. I'm not sure how we will paint it, but I loved the distressed look and style of this table.

On to the crown....


Our friends Eric and Chris and his dad Dennis came over on Sunday to help with the crown. Crown is such a hard thing to do. Your cuts have to be so precise, but when you have two builders on hand the job can get done!


This picture was taken right after it was put up. After Evan finished caulking and painting over the nail holes we were a little disappointed how the crown looked against the white walls. It just blended in. Chris suggested painting the crown in a high gloss. Evan finished that Thursday night and that did the trick! (I'll have to post a picture of that soon)

Notice the new ceiling fan.....
