Connor's Room - In Progress

As I mentioned before, one of the things I was really excited about for getting our own home was properly decorating a room for Connor. A couple months ago, I stumbled across some adorable bedding for his room (so the baby can have his crib bedding) and that became the basis for the room.

This weekend we* painted the room. I use the term "we" loosely. My parents spent all day Saturday painting the room. All day, you ask? Well, apparently the room had been painted with oil based paint, so it was repelling the paint I bought. It was a headache. But after about 2300 coats of paint, it is done. And even though my parents spent all day Saturday painting, Ian had to spend a couple hours on Sunday painting as well. But its done. And I like it.

Connor wanted to preview his room to you...well, at least the paint color. I have been instructed not to hang anything on the walls for a few days until the paint is "good and dry", so you won't get to see the finished product for a few days. But here is what Connor was willing to show you this morning while hamming it up in his bed.

*I said "we" painted the room because both Saturday and Sunday I provided the entertainment for the painters. AND I was nice enough to point out all the spots that needed repainting!


  1. I love the green! So bright and vibrant, and perfect with his white crib. I can't wait to see the finished product.

    Connor is adorable, such a ham. And he has gorgeous hair!!

  2. That green is adorable, as is Connor's hair. I can't wait to see the finished product!

  3. Looking real spiffy! And don't underestimate the power of entertaining the painters! Especially with that many coats to do...

  4. I love the color!

    Connor has an insane amount of hair on his head - I am SOOO jealous. It's absolutely amazingly think and lovely.

  5. LOVE the color!! Connor is so adorable!!
