It would NOT be "The Speediest Home Improvers Ever!"
We are so. Ungodly. Slow. I hate it.
It took probably 6 months to get Dahlia's tiny room 'finished' (although we are still needing to hang one piece of art...).
It took months upon months for me to strip the wallpaper in our bedroom (it was the EVIL kind of wallpaper)...and we're still living in what looks like ruins from post-war Europe. Lovely. Relaxing. Soothing. Sheesh.
We have lived here for a year & a half & have ONE piece of artwork hung. WTH?
The baby's room is in process - we have a time limit on this - obviously. That wallpaper wasn't as hard to strip -but was a pain in my rear. My Dad painted it - YAHOOOOOO - when they were up watching Dahlia while we went up the shore in January. Thank God. I primed the nasty closet last Friday (well, most of it - I can't reach the upper parts) and Steve has started priming all the trim...but it is slow going. He is a perfectionist.
I primed the baby's dresser yesterday & hope to get it painted this weekend (my nesting instincts are really kicking in & it's TIME to get out the newborn clothes & fold them neatly in said dresser...for my piece of mind!). The crib is up, the dust ruffle is in place, we have a new rug, but there is still so much to do. Our dream is to have it DONE before Baby B #2 arrives...but I'm worried! I KNOW it will take twice as long to finish up after he/she arrives. I've done this before....
I need to find some artwork; we're debating (!) getting another glider because damn they are comfy & we're not sure what we'd use in Dahlia's room if we move the glider into the baby's room & we'd still like to have a snuggle spot in her room....
I should stop thinking - I get worked up.
I didn't mention the valance, the shelves in the closet, etc, etc, etc.....
