Although there are still more than a couple of months to go before Grandson No. 2 is due to arrive, his parents are very organised and wanted to sort out the nursery asap....presumably before the football season starts again as the dad is an avid Liverpool fan and season ticket holder!!! Say no more...
So when it was suggested that I went up to Liverpool last weekend and help decorate the nursery, how could I refuse. I say decorate, well actually the room had already been painted a pretty blue and a brand new carpet laid. It was just a simple task of fixing transfers that the baby's mum had bought online (from "Not On The High Street") and stick them on the wall where she wanted them to go.
Easy peasy and great fun!
We started off with the tree trunk and then created the branches.
It was far simpler than I thought it would be, the transfers are self adhesive and relatively quick to put up. Although it is definitely a two person job for some of the larger sections as they have a habit of sticking to anything in sight!
Gradually two of the monkeys were added, and then the leaves on the branches.
Then another branch coming from the side of the wall with another monkey and a bird up on the corner branch.
Next was a smiley sun and some colourful transfer bunting along the top and hey presto....one very cheery and lovely nursery.
However, putting the cot and chest of drawers together were another matter and not quite so easy, it all took one heck of a long time (the completely illustrated instructions were a little vague in places)...but after much head scratching and pondering, we got there in the end.
Now all the nursery needs is a baby:)
