Decorating Kate's Room

With 11 more weeks to go before Kate arrives, my big upcoming to-do item is painting her room. We selected the color "Hopeful" from Behr for her walls. A trip to Home Depot is planned for this weekend to pick up the necessary paint and supplies and then I'll be off to work.

In the meantime, Jean-Marie has come up with a creative solution for decorating Kate's room. We did not want to paint directly on the wall and wanted something we could easily change as Kate grows. The solution was something we could personalize and have fun doing -- hand-painted framed canvases of Kate's name with with butterflies and flowers (it all matches her bedding and we hope the large letters will help her recognize her name). I snuck in a little painting on the letter "K", but Jean-Marie gets all the credit for the hard work -- she has done an excellent job painting!
