Working on Ryan's Nursery

My parents spent the holiday weekend with us and we worked on Ryan's nursery! It was so great to have their help because I know Kevin and I would have been lost without their help.  On Saturday we did a little dividing and conquering - my mom started out by painting Ryan's walls blue while Kevin tackled painting the new bookcases white (they were an antique white) and my dad and I headed to Home Depot to get chair railing for the room.  In the afternoon it was time to tackle the bead boarding - what a task! My dad started it and he wanted to give up after the first strip was placed. I think wall papering brings back horrible memories for everyone - haha. Anyhow, we stuck with it and it actually turned out pretty darn good looking! We made a few minor mistakes, but I think overall it looks great! Here are some pics of us in action!

Here we go!

Our first wall completed (wall #3)

We added the bookcases that Kevin painted and built (assembled)! We unpacked lots of Ryan's goodies since we finally had a place to put some of them, but it won't be their final placement. We just need to rest of the furniture!

Next wall completed (wall #4)

So we still have two more walls to complete - we had to stop because we ran out of the bead boarding. Kevin and I will finish it up in the next week or so. We had such a great time working on the room this weekend that we decided our next project would be to repaint the dresser and nightstand instead of hiring someone to do it. I am so excited for the crib and glider to come in and can't wait to put it all together!
