Magnet Board

All of the projects that we had in mind for Jace's room have been put on hold. Not because we don't want to do them, but because ... a baby takes a lot of time! ... and I waste a lot of time ... :) Today, while Jace was asleep, I pulled out a magnet board that I got ages ago and started painting. I tried my best to match the colors with his wall hanging -- I thought I did a pretty good job. The colors are a bit darker than the original painting, but we are placing it far enough away that hopefully no one will really notice.
I also got the letters that we bought before Jace was born -- (YES ... We DID have his name picked out before he was born ... barely!) I painted those to match. I was going to put his name on one side of the window and the magnet board on the other ... but Joe placed the letters on the board and it looked so good that I HAVE to have these over sized letters as the magnets.

It felt VERY good to get a project out of the way. Hopefully this will be a summer full of projects :)

Looks awesome!What a very cute idea to paint it like the wall hanging and then I never would have thought to put the letters on the board (Go, Joe!!)!
