Baby Room Update

 Yes, we're having a girl and yes, we're painting the room blue. At this point (day of the posting), we've finished painting and we've got more furniture together but I still wanted to share some in-progress photos.
 Let me just say this: I HATE PAINTING WINDOWS. I accidentally forgot to keep one open so Bimmer Man had to use an exacto knife to cut it loose. Oops. The windows are new enough that you just push in the sides and they flip into the house to clean - but I'm not strong enough to do that so I had to play the "window shuffle" and keep flip flopping them up and down to paint. Whatever... I did it. I still need to do some touch-ups and get the semi-gloss onto the windows but that can be done this Spring/Summer. It's getting too cold to keep the windows open.
 Bimmer Man picked out the paint color - it's Innocence by Benjamin Moore (but I got it color matched at Home Depot - they do the best job!).
And here's the AWESOME rug. Yup, you get just a peek!

Now onto picking out artwork and new curtains - I'm leaning towards a chevron pattern for the curtains - maybe in the red/rust color in the rug. I keep having to push "neutral" out of my mind - it's a girl and I just keep thinking "Holy crap, what if she comes out a he? WE'VE ALREADY GOT PINK CLOTHES!!!"

Happy Thursday!
