Update!

Standard

The contractors are finished and we’re nearing the end. Here’s what’s left on the to do list:

Put down the rug (it’s a very bright pink and will leave about a foot of floor exposed along the perimeter of the room)
Cover the outlets
Hang curtain rods/curtains
Assemble her bed
Hang her alphabet wall over the bed

That’ll be it for now because we’re not bringing toys or books or other distractions in until she’s settled into her new room and bed.

They just have to put one more coat of clear polyurethane on the floor. The dark spot in the corner is where it was white before. We’ll be putting curtains up, the rug in, and assembling her bed this weekend. Then I’ll just have to hang her alphabet wall and artwork.
