Room Pics

Ok, here are the long awaited pics of the rooms. Like I said before, keep in mind, we're trying to spiffy up an old house on public safety salaries. Don't expect anything too dramatic. Just a fresh coat of paint and some rearranging.
Here's 1 corner BEFORE and AFTER

A door shot BEFORE and AFTER

Another corner shot BEFORE and AFTER (see the FREE crib?! M surprised me yesterday by putting it together(all by herself) while I was at work)

Here's a couple other angles.

Looking in.

I didn't get any before pics of our room but the walls and stuff looked like above before pics only with black curtains and a dark comforter. Much different now. (And yeah I know, the blue comforter doesn't exactly match the green walls.....we're working on that :o) )

We did it! We told M's mom last night about the flower. We invited her over to check out the newly painted rooms. Showed her ours first and then gave her a little warning that the next room might be a little shocking. We opened the door and said "SURPRISE"! She looked a little shocked but it went over very well. No drama. Thankfully! We all talked for about an hour and that was that. Whew! That's over. Now I just gotta tell my folks and we'll be all set!

The rooms look great.
I'm so glad that your MIL took it well.
Crossing fingers your family is as receptive.

Whew! Glad it went well with your MIL.
The rooms look great, and I can't believe you got a free crib. Awesome! We're moving next spring, so we're not going to bother getting a nursery ready in our apartment. I'll just live vicariously through you! :)
