The 5 Cent Tour

The room isn’t done, which is why this tour is only 5 cents. Yet, I couldn’t wait to show off all that has been accomplished.

And now?

Well, this is what the backside of the panel doors look like now.

The front of the doors have been stenciled with Elly’s name on them. (Elizabeth wouldn’t fit.)

The shortest of the walls features a home plate. (The rest of the walls are awaiting more stenciling and a pair of baseball bats).

I couldn’t resist buying this switch plate for her room.

Part of the reason I am so excited that the painting is done (outside of the few stenciling projects) is because this belly o’ mine was starting to get in the way of crouching and climbing.  Do you believe there are only 9 more weeks to go? I fluctuate between excitement and utter disbelief.

Now Dan has to start tackling all the tasks on his Honey-Do list. The biggest item on it is to rip up that lovely green carpet that now sports splotches of white and red paint. With a little luck, the hardwood underneath won’t need any work outside of a good dusting and mopping.

  1. Your still looking great. The room is shaping up to be really cute. I notice there is only one thing hanging in the closet, that won’t be for long. That little girl is going to be a baseball nut.
