Around the Nest: Playroom- Paint's Going Up!

Welcome to the new playroom... errr well the in progress playroom! I have big plans for this room and we are hoping to get most of the to-do list crossed off before we move in. 

Here is what the playroom looked like before any changes or improvements were done: 
Here is the to-do list for the playroom: 
  • Dr. Seuss mural
    • Paint the background
    • Paint the characters 
  • Create a book nook out of the closet
    • Take the closet door off the hinges
    • Add "bookshelves" 
    • Add curtain and tie back
    • Add some sort of seating (bean bag chair, etc)
  • Move in all the "stuff"
    • Futon
    • Changing table
    • Organizing shelf
    • Toys
    • Rugs
Not a large to-do list but it will take some effort to get it all done before the move in date. Today while Everett was playing at a friends house (thanks again Jana) I painted the background of the playroom.  I can't wait to see all of the characters up on the wall, my good friend Lisa is coming over tomorrow to paint them! 

Here's what the playroom looks like with the background (note: I didn't cut in the ceiling or around the tops of the windows because I forgot to bring a ladder!) 

Stay tuned for more fun!
