The Pink Project

Now that we know Peanut belongs to Team Blue, I’m all geared up to begin work on the nursery.
The pink walls have got to go. All of our house guests have attempted to describe the intensity of the current color. It’s been refered to as “hot pink”, “Barbie pink”, and “80s pink”to name a few. It’s easiest just to show the pictures and to note that it’s so bright, there’s no need for lights.

I had my heart set on a Serena and Lily bedding ensemble. After seeing the $600 price tag Riz vetoed it immediately. I know it’s completely unreasonable and Peanut wouldn’t know the difference… I do love it though. The problem with seeing the expensive bedding, is that everything that follows pales in comparison. Everything except the walls.

My issue with forgoing boutique shopping is not that I don’t like saving money, but that I’m strictly opposed to themed rooms. I find rooms decked out in Looney Tunes, Winnie the Pooh , and the like completely repulsive. The light switch cover matches valance which matches the lampshade and the sheets and the mobile. Of course, most of the the big retailers boast shelves upon shelves of this crap.

After searching through countless of bad choices, I’ve decided to recreate the Serena and Lily bedding on a budget. A much much smaller budget. The challenge starts tomorrow. Wish me luck!
