Adeline's Room

Anyone who knows me well knows I'm a planner. I like to have things ready in advance. Therefore, Adeline's room is almost completely ready for her!

Before any paint was applied

It all started Thursday night when Jon and I painted the base coat on all the walls. Then Friday after work, Jon painted a 2nd coat. My parents got here Friday evening to help.

Saturday morning my dad and Jon started marking and taping off where the chair rail and stripes would go.
While Jon painted the stripes, my dad cut the chair rail to fit the room. During this time my mom and I went shopping for a crib mattress and changing table pad.

When we got back, my mom and I repainted a bookcase that my dad built for me when I was little.
After the stripes were dry, the chair rail was nailed into place.

Then furniture assembly began! We got the crib and changing table put together Saturday night, but the dresser was out of the question for our tired bodies and short tempers.

We got up bright and early Sunday morning and my dad and Jon put together the dresser while my mom and I sorted through all my childhood books. I kept the really special ones, but am donating the rest since I know Adeline will collect many of her own. Finally, the chair rail was painted and the furniture was arranged.

We even put the bedding on the crib. Everything looks so perfect.

Now all she needs is to have her books put on the shelves and curtains hung, and decorations here and there.

I cannot thank my wonderful husband and parents enough. I don't know what I would do without any of them. I love y'all!


  1. It looks great! I love the bedding and the furniture!

  2. We're so happy we were able to come help! It turned out so pretty. I know Adeline will love it! :)
    We love y'all!

  3. Thanks! I'm due the beginning of 2010. Being the second and sooo close to Lucy, the baby will probably come early, maybe even December! Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy!

  4. So cute! I love the stripes! We are totaly opposites! Owen is almost 6 months old and I still do not have his room completely finished! Ha!

  5. Adeline is one loved little girl! You all have done such a wonderful job with the decorating!I absolutely adore the use of chair rail to define the wall with a solid color on top and something fun and funky like stripes on the bottom. Scrolling through, I was expecting to see another color in the stripes, but I love how you kept the wall color on top as well as bottom and used a darker pink to contrast. The furniture is beautiful too! Congratulations and thank you for sharing your room design!

  6. Such a cute nursery!! I wish I was creative about painting...this turned out great!
