Baby Nursery paint project

We had a great weekend with Tiffany and Ryan.
The nursery is painted and the furniture is assembled in anticipation of Grandbaby number one in April.
Although we still have some decorating to do, The painting is done!!
What a project that was. TIffany wanted to do a tone on tone stripe sort of thing. This sounded great in theroy but to actually do it caused a lot of laughs and a few late nights. Not to mention a bit of frustration for these two perfectionist women. The stipes of course had to be even all around the room, so measuring to precision was of the utmost importance ugh!!
I must say it turned out beautifully. Would I stripe a room again hmm... maybe after a lot of time goes by.

Linking up to:
