We are all still alive!!

What a busy, busy weekend! Since the guy at Home Depot said we had to wait 8 hours for the paint to dry before doing the next coat, it took us FOREVER to paint. We did coat 1 of the pink on Thursday, coat 2 of the pink and coat 1 of the purple on Friday and then finished up the purple on Saturday morning!

However, Friday afternoon after we finished purple coat #1, we also noticed that the ceiling was glistening in a huge spot over the cradle. So, Pat got up on a chair to investigate and the ceiling was SQUISHY! We decided to finish the second coat of the purple on Saturday and not go any further with decorating as we were not sure what was going to happen!

The super arrived Monday morning to investigate and cut into the ceiling to discover a pipe that was not insulated and was dripping. The plumber arrived Monday afternoon but according to him, the store where he would have to go to get the materials he needed was closed (Who knows!) so he returned this morning to fix the pipe. The ceiling contractor will be coming on Friday to patch the holes and to repair the ceiling. So, without further ado…here is a picture showing the new paint colors and the two lovely holes in our ceiling!!

So far, the walls have remained unscathed. When the hole was first cut, some of the pipe water splashed on the wall but the super wiped it up right away.

So, we should have the crib in and the room fully decorated by Saturday!

I don’t have any other pictures to post because I just managed to snap off the room picture before my last 2 batteries died. We are going to invest in some rechargable ones because in the long run, it will be so worth it!



  1. Pretty!!!! Can’t wait to see what it will look like with everything put back in its place!

    • Thanks. I should have some updated pics by Monday!!

  2. I like the colours (from what I can see in the picture – haha). Can’t wait to see the entire room all finished 🙂

    How’s Syd doing?


    • Syd is doing well!! She is a much happier baby these days!!!

  3. It looks great Sue! I can’t wait to see it with the crib in place. 🙂

    • Me too!! I am so looking forward to getting the crib and all of the “fixin’s” in!
