Project #3 Hang chairrail in Isaac’s room. For the past 2 months the room has been half sage green and half denim blue with no chairrail. I was dying to get that hung. The chairrail just makes the room. Tim could totally do it but our mottos for projects differ. My motto, “Anything worth doing is worth doing right.” Tim’s motto is “Any project Beckie wants done is worth doing as quickly as possible.” Now please don’t take that as a dig on Tim. I love the man to pieces. But he hates projects and I love them. We often bicker in the midst of projects simply because he likes short cuts and I like to make sure everything is perfect, I am kind of anal like that. Therefore, Tim’s dad hanging the chairrail saved a fight. Yippee!
Didn’t it turn out wonderful!? I love his room. This used to be my favorite room in the house but I think my new playroom has taken that spot. Thanks to Jennifer P. But this room is a close second. I wanted to feature some things in the room that people who loves us got for Isaac.
First of all when I was pregnant and on vacation Eightcrazy came over with her hubby and set up this in his room.
It was her children’s crib. Before I became a mother I wasn’t a “kid person” but for some reason her kids stole a place in my heart. So the fact that Isaac got to sleep where they once did is sweet to me.
Then a friend named Chandra (my pregnancy coach – she was preggers at the same time but 8 weeks ahead of me) made these letters to perfectly match his bedroom ensemble. I still love them as much as I did when I first hung them.
Delores made this adorble little frame for my little man. And the colors are perfect.
Before Isaac was born Tim and I went to one of those paint your own pottery places. We each painted a car for his room. I was so bitter when Tim finished WAAAAAAY earlier than I did and then we get them back and his looks better than mine. Hey I’m the creative one here! GRRRR! But mine matched the room perfectly, that has got to count for something.
Then my Auntie Dee Dee made this cool frame that she hand wrote part of Psalm 139 in this Parrothead font. She also hand cut the mat and painted a swirly design on it.
Speaking of the ever-so-talented Michelle Allen here is painting she helped me do. I was so petrified to paint but she said if she showed me a few tips I could. So here is my first official acrylic painting that I am proud of.
And here is the dresser my father and mother-in-law bought to match Eightcrazy’s crib.
