Sweet Baby Boy Room

This weekend was spent at son’s house where we got started on the baby’s room.     When Jennifer (DIL) found out she was having a boy, we started putting together ideas on what she wanted to do in the baby’s room.     I’m lucky that she and I have a lot of the same taste so I suggested we incorporate the ever-popular beadboard wallpaper in our design.     So we decided we’d paint the upper 1/3rd a pretty blue and use the beadboard wallpaper on the bottom part.     We didn’t get started until around 10:00 a.m. Saturday morning but we (son) knocked out the painting pretty quickly and I “helped” with the cutting in!       After a quick lunch we starting measuring, cutting and hanging the wallpaper.      Now, I’m of the belief that if something ain’t broke don’t fix it but the fine folks that are manufacturing the beadboard wallpaper have decided (for whatever reason) to discontinue making it pre-pasted so we had to put the paste ON THE WALL as opposed to the paper….trust me, we put the glue on the first strip of wallpaper but it worked much better when we rolled it onto the wall.

Of course, we ran out of paper needing only a couple more pieces.    Luckily I have a small amount at home (that is pre-pasted) so we’re hoping there is enough on that roll to finish up the room.      Then we’ll put a small shoe-mold type trim on the top of the existing baseboard and add a nice chair rail strip all around the room where the paint and wallpaper meet….like this….



Here’s the room prior to painting and wallpapering.    It used to be my granddaughter’s bedroom but we moved her across the hall to another room this past summer.     DIL had it decorated in a ladybug theme….thus the bright yellow walls.

Here’s my favorite (and only) son measuring a level line for the wallpaper so we’d have a guide for how far down to paint

I did a lot of the cutting in but this was the last wall and he wanted to done (he says I’m too slow!)

I got this lamp at Kirkland’s last summer….it is perfect for this room.     You can also see a little bit of the bedding as well as a frame my daughter had made for the baby

I just had to include this sweet pic of my baby holding his baby (he’s grown quite a bit since this picture….I think he’s about a week old here and now he’s 10 weeks)

Hubby and I will have to go back up to cut the trim for the room.    I really encouraged them to find a trim man in Birmingham cause neither one of us a good at carpentry!   Does anyone know a good (cheap) trim man in Birmingham?


And I can’t close without giving a shout out to my Auburn Tigers and my hero…..Cam Newton!     War Eagle Baby!!!!!
