The nursery - a sneak peak

White walls, robin's egg blue ceiling, paper ruffle lantern

Thanks Mike!

Close-up of our do-it-yourself ceiling colour. 
This is what happens when you have several leftover cans of Farrow and Ball paint and cheap Dutch blood. 

The mirror which the change table will be placed under. 
Once an oldish bronze colour, now a fresh yellow. 

 The curtains! One of my many sewing projects :)

We spent Friday date night doing what every normal family does - crafting!

This week's craft, constructing a bird mobile for the rocking chair corner of the nursery. 

Luke and Judah worked late into the night (7 pm). 
I have pictures to prove it...

The birds before Judah starting beating them with the sticks...

One bird getting whacked with a stick- the others looking on in terror. 

Judah's "innocent" look- notice the unconscious bird in the background.

Luke "working hard" to balance the sticks. 
This sort of advanced physics requires a manly pose and a beer. 

et voila!

It's all starting to come together. Now I just need the term to end so I can relegate Luke's desk to the basement and get the baby furniture moved in! 

Sorry honey.
