Baby’s room makeover

Well, it’s taken longer than I had ever expected, but the baby’s room is now ready.  The carpets have been steam cleaned, the ceiling, walls, skirting board, door, windows and door trim have all been treated to a new lick of paint.  An additional power-point and dimmer switch installed, curtains hung, and a new light fitting in place.

IMG_9856Not knowing if it is a boy or a girl has meant we weren’t influenced to paint it blue or pink and so we’ve opted for neutral tones.  The curtains were rescued from certain death after Mel’s parents decided to remodel their house, and my mother, being clever on the sewing machine was able to modify them for use in the baby’s room.    Total cost would be at about $100 for paint, and another $100 for electrical parts.  I wish I had a “before” photo to compare it with, but in reality I don’t think I’d share it anyway – it was horrendous, easily the worst room in our house.  Mel is thrilled with the result and can’t wait to get things all set up.  Now to get cracking on the last bits of furniture!

    Wow, what a lovely calm feeling to this room, it looks great. you sure did a good job with it, I am sure you will both have fun decorating and fitting it out.
    The curtains look like they are blockout, if they aren’t, it is a good idea to get some blockout lining and sew or velcro it to line the curtains, it wll help keep the cold out in the Winter and the heat and early sunlight out in the Summer.
