The Nursery, Unveiled

I've been waiting til the nursery was "all done" before sharing pics, but we've finally got it all ready with the exception of the chair, which should be delivered any day now.

All four of the grandparents-to-be participated in the preparation of Kate's room, which makes it extra-special. The grandmothers painted, Matt's dad (and Matt) put together the crib and moved the dresser in. My dad did repairs like sanding down the closet door so it would open and close without immense effort. I painted the various decorative elements, like the name letters, bulletin board, picture frames, and the safari-scene canvas. Matt has moved furniture, assembled the stroller, swing, etc., and always having the level, hammer, and drill handy. It's been a family effort as we all await Kate's arrival (any day now!)







And finally, the wide view, from the door. The chair will go just to the left of the window.
