Although it isn't completed, it is partially decorated. All that is missing are some pictures/art on the walls. I just need to paint some frames white and finish a canvas (hopefully with a quote). I have all the tools, just not the time. Oh only two weeks until I'm done with school for the Summer, then three months of QT with Jack and some serious house projects. Anywhoo...here are some pictures of his semi-finished nursery.
|The bench my mom fixed up is so cute beside the tree.|
|You can totally see the palace guard in this picture. My fav part of the tree is the floating leaves.|
|He loves it...|
|Gotta love the little heart detail Lindsay drew, it says "K + T = J."|
Realistically the mural may be a pain in the butt later, depending on how long we take up residence on Smith St., to repaint (and very sad too). Hopefully the whimsical tree can be worked into whatever other theme Jack decides, for at least a few years. I was thinking some England-ish accessories to big-boy it up...I already have a double decker bus and a black cab little cars on display, a stuffed bear version of a Buckingham palace guard and an English tea tin with some flowers in it (from the his baby shower)...not to mention the other English/British stuff I have around from my study abroad adventure. I'm glad I went with this "theme," it's totally workable.
And once again, THANKS Lindsay. That tree is just amazing.
