The Bane of Dave

I asked Dave to paint the dresser in the nursery about 7 months ago, but he kept putting it off. "I'll have more time right before the baby comes," he said. You see, Dave hates painting anything besides walls. And so, with 6 days remaining before Lucy's due date, he finished the dresser! I am so thankful he was willing (though begrudgingly and with many sighs) to do this for me! He really did a wonderful job. I love how sparkly the knobs are that I bought from Anthropologie about 8 months ago.

Anyhow, here's the before:

And the after:



pretty :)

Way to go, David! As our Jewish family members would say, "What a mensch!"

That looks great! Especially with the two art projects above it! Love the decor!

Also, I think we have that same trash can/diaper pail. Are you planning on using cloth? I'd advise a pail liner/wet bag, but the plastic bucket inside is still pretty easy to clean if you need to use it without one.

Congratulations and wishing you a safe and happy birth!
