One of the great things about owning the house you grew up in is having the memories and history of the house. We chose my father's office for our daughters nursery. What a great place and a great vibe for her to grow up in... all the great thoughts and things my father drummed up in that office and now a new chapter gets to start.
We had some great help with the nursery along the way from my big sis, brother in law and mother. They got the ball rolling (to our surprise) one weekend when we were in Canada and my sis helped us paint once we were ready. So it made it feel like it was done in a flash. We basically stripped the whole room as it had the original shag carpet (house built in 1971) and the craziest wallpaper I have ever seen. It was actually pretty cool though and wish I could have saved it. We added some cool chair rails, 2 tone paint and some nice baseboards and molding and it came out better than we expected. Also added a nice chandelier for some bling factor. Tara has been spending most of her time in there organizing all her clothes which she seems to already have more then both of us and she hasn't even been born yet! crazy too me. Here are a couple pics but there are more on my facebook page if ya wanna see the whole thing. http://www.facebook.com/marcoaledia
So I can check that off the list and keep rolling on my the other projects.. looking forward to checking everything off this list, but non more than the the last one: The arrival of our Daughter.
