Started work on the nursery today


Here's a "before" picture of the study. Usually things are not in boxes, they are spread all over the desk! But anyway, this is sort of what it looks like now, with yellow walls and and orange/red/yellow/rust curtain.

None of the nursery designs would go well with the wall color except MAYBE the second one, Glenna. But I'm not even sure about that. So I figured while I have my handyman here disassembling my desk and relocating it to the basement, I might as well also paint the walls. I chose a simple creamy off white color, which will go with anything. I love having color on the walls in my house, and several walls have a bright accent color on them. But there are so many accessories and wall hangings for the nurseries available that simple white will allow me to go with any design. I'll show pictures as we move ahead in the process.

Another corner of the room:





This is after the desk has been removed:



Ahh yes, there is that covered vent that was under the desk, freezing me out of the room all winter long!

Now, I don't know about you guys, but when my handyman is here, I feel the need to work every minute he is here. I let him do his thing, but I don't want him thinking I'm some rich, lazy person. So while he works, I get done a bunch. So far I have: picked up all the dog poo in the back yard, done two loads of laundry, done a load of dishes, finally put away some Christmas decorations (!!), and now I'm about to put all the paperwork back into the reassembled desk in the basement. Do you guys feel the same when you have help over?

Yes, I clean during the whole time help is over. I don't want them to think I'm lazy either. LOL!

Michelle,

When someone is working at my house, I just sit back and let them work. After all, I'm paying them and I don't feel guilty. No, not one bit guilty....LOL!
