Nursery Renovation

Our family took on a major nursery renovation at church recently. I actually finished the last touch up of paint this morning. I had a blast seeing the vision become reality.

My daughter and I were sitting in the nursery one Sunday morning, playing with the babies discussing what we would do to update the room. It had an awesome Noah's Ark mural theme, that had been painted about 9 years ago. It was getting pretty beat up and change sounded fun. We started taking notes...

A couple of weeks later, the children's ministry director mentioned to us that she was thinking of updating the nursery and wondered if we could come up with some ideas. I handed her the list. :)

After the week long project turning into are the results. I think my favorite change is the odd little room as it became a cottage, especially the window box!

Sunday School Song Theme
Chain on vinyl chandelier says "This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine."
New sink, counter and faucet with painted cabinets.
Buffalo check valance and acrylic mirror.
Painted the shelf and added French memo board.

We changed the fluorescent lights out for can lights. Added one on a dimmer in the cottage.

So fresh and clean looking!
