The nursery: Before

Ahhhh...the before pictures of the nursery. This was the bedroom for one of the daughters of the previous owners. Lately we've been using it as a holding place for items damaged in the basement flood. But now it's time to turn it into Cheeto's nursery!

Before we can start doing the fun stuff, we have to get this room back in order. The walls are covered with yellow paint on the bottom, a wallpaper border in the middle and striped wallpaper at the top. Definitely not our style! And there's a little repair work to be done. Apparently, someone slammed the door into the wall, and the doorknob made a rather large hole. After we fix that, we'll need to install some sort of stopper so that doesn't happen again!

Chris has become obsessed with taking down the wallpaper, but it has come off pretty easily. All that's left is removing the glue, which is the hard part! Then we can paint and add our own wallpaper border from our nursery bedding. I can't believe after taking down all of this wallpaper, we're just going to add more! Even though a border will be minimal work.

Enjoy these before pictures. Hopefully we'll have something better to show in a few weeks!
