Home Improvement

We have LOVED having Paul home from school for the last few weeks. We've been able to get so much done around the house. Here are a few pictures of what we've done:

I got the itch to paint something, so we started small and did Hattie's bathroom. We love how it turned out. Now I want to paint the hall, the family room, and Hattie's room. We'll see when I make time for it.

We've finally turned Hattie's room into a proper nursery. She is 21 months old and we finally have a crib for her. She has been in a Pack and Play since she was born, so it's nice to finally have a cute room for her. It seems most parents do this before the baby is born, but I'm just glad we did it before baby #2 was born and we needed another bed!

Paul also built the kids' play table that you see. He spent quite a few days in the garage with his tools, scaring Hattie to death whenever he turned on his saw or drill. We love how it turned out and Hattie loves to play with it. And it makes her room look so much cleaner now that I can shove all her toys underneath.

Great work on the craftmanship of the table, Paul. It looks very professional. I am impressed. And the cute organization skills of the set up of toys! I can see Melanie's skills. Thanks for sharing. Cute bathroom and darling nursery/Hattie's room.

Very cute! I'm impressed with you painting the bathroom walls! I'm so scared to balance on anything with my big belly, ha ha!! Well, if I was allowed to...;)

Melanie, I am so impressed also ... I'd love it if you and Hattie plus baby bird came and coached me on painting our bedroom! :)
Hatties room looks adorable!
Great job Paul!
