Lol! @Xath i didn't really really think about that... I'm quite short (5.3) so maybe it didn't occur to me for that reason. Maybe I should just look for a flatter light that stays close to the ceiling! I do like the look of that chandelier I posted though it would look great with an indoor hammock I plan to buy and my gold crib.
Xath said:When we moved into this house there were chandeliers in almost every room. My husband repeatedly smacked his head on all of them. Bend down to pick up the kid? Stand up smack his head. Run in the middle of the night because one had a nightmare? Smacked his head.
So due to my crazy hip pain last week, DH has decided that we NEED to get going on the baby's room before I'm really useless. So I'm reviving this thread!We wants to paint next weekend, but realistically it will probably be 3 weeks from now at the earliest (I'll be 25 weeks). I've painted every room in this house and planned to do the same now. Is that unrealistic? Is it safe? Someone mentioned paint fumes to me today, and I kind of think that's outdated and I'm clearly not moving out whether I'm the one painting or not...
@GlitterFish we did a good bit of painting over the last year and tried a bunch of different paint brands. I highly recommend the Behr Marquee paint. Out of everything we used it gave the best coverage (didn't need to prime) and had the least noticeable fumes of any other brand. We ventilated the room while painting but you couldn't even smell it. I am pretty sensitive to smells pregnant or not and it never bothered me.
So, 2 house/ baby ?s--1) We're in final stages for what I hope will be our new house! I am trying to think through all I want to do. Would you paint the walls again if the color is ok? I mean we won't know to be able to match it or if like kids colors on it....but it's a lot to do. 2) Does anyone have a baby monitor they like? The one we liked the dm 222-2 (audio only vtech) seems to be no longer for sale-- and I am a first time mommy! Buy buy baby sent me 20% anything so trying to use coupons!
