Last night, I had a bit of a mini panic attack. There's only 2 weeks left before my baby shower (feted by my 3 besties & family) and we still have so much left to do to get the nursery completed! We're hoping to have it done by then since people will be coming over and will probably want to see it, so that has been our goal ever since we knew the date of the shower. But I'm starting to wonder if we'll get everything in order by then - the crib still needs to be built, the carpet needs to be steam cleaned, the ceiling light needs to be installed, and the list goes on my friends.
I did receive the wall stencil for the nursery closet last week, but because we had to pull out sinkers (there are 5 holes in the closet wall right now, eek!), the wall stenciling project has been a bit of a pain in the arse to say the least. I will be spackling today as well as letting it dry, and then hopefully tomorrow we can sand it down to paint it. Then after that, I can start wall stenciling the beautiful rose pattern I found on Etsy. Pain in the arse, right? But I know it'll be worth it so I'm just thinking of the outcome, not so much the process.
We did, however, make some progress this weekend, which was that we spruced up our deck. Why the deck and not the nursery you ask? Well, the weather was so amazing this past weekend that we were finally inspired to install flower boxes to the railing of our deck. Oh, it only took us almost 4 years since we moved in to do this, but we finally added some color (and privacy) to the deck with the flower boxes. We live in a townhouse and our deck is surrounded by our neighbors decks on both sides and across the way, so adding the flower boxes has really improved the deck experience.
