How fun is the latest project I’m working on?
A few months ago, a friend/client announced she was pregnant with her first baby.
She asked if I would be willing to help her tackle the nursery… to which I said, OBVIOUSLY.
But here’s the best part…
They want a gender-specific room for their newest addition, but are planning to keep the sex a surprise….
So – we have come up with an elaborate plan to help them execute this top-secret endeavor.
First, I would come up with 2 separate schemes:
One for a bouncing baby boy…
And one for a sweet baby girl…
Once we agree that everything looks good – they are allowing ME and only ME to read the contents of THIS:
That there is a sealed envelope that contains the gender results of their recent ultrasound.
And based on what’s written on that piece of paper….
I will either be giving them THIS:
Or I will be giving them THIS:
To be sure there are no tip-offs as to what furniture has been ordered,
We are waiting until they are on their way to the hospital before bringing any furnishings into the space…
But all parties agree that while we must tackle paint and lighting ahead of time,
The door will be PADLOCKED so no one goes peeking in a moment of weakness.
It’s an elaborate plan… one that will truly test my coordinating skills… but it’s SO FUN, and I love being part of it!
I was SO tempted to read the results after bringing home the envelope…
But since I’m having dinner with the mom-to-be tonight, I didn’t want there to be ANY chance she could get me to crack.
While I’m a great secret-keeper… I’ve been told I’m a terrible liar.
And the anticipation is KILLING me!
Till Tomorrow, Happy Decorating.
