It's hard to believe it is even the same room. Peeling paneling, bent up metal blinds, and big drafts did not make for an ideal baby room. With lots of help from friends and family it has completely transformed. We couldn't have done it without everyone's help - THANK YOU!!
That old paneling doesn't even compare to the new tongue and groove panels that replaced it. To say it's solid is an understatement. The windows got alot of hand sanding and detail work, along with refinished hardware that now makes us want to refinish the rest of the windows in the house. SOMEDAY. Travis' handy work on the trim makes the room look complete. And when we tore down that old wood paneling we found a nook to the left of the door that now creates incredibly functional shelving. While it was a bit of a puzzle making it look square when it's not even close, Travis did an incredible job. It even fits the baskets we already had perfectly.
And while I say the room is complete, there really is one more detail left to finish. Above the Ikea dresser that we stained and painted will be his name banner - waiting to be hung upon his arrival. One week and counting until that due date!
