The week before the big day, he gave me a present to open and told me it was an early Mother's Day Present. The bag had all of our paint supplies in it. He told me that our bedroom was going to be off-limits for the next few days. The only thing I had to do was pick out the paint that I wanted. I had already had the paint swatch picked out for months, so that was easy!
Mike literally spent every hour for the next two days (we're talking OVER 20 hours here) stripping wallpaper, moving furniture, taping, and painting. Talk about LOVE! Our bedroom is so big and has so much woodwork that I was SHOCKED he got it all done in two days! Once the whole thing was complete, he walked me in for the big reveal.
I almost started crying. I married such a gem. He is the most kind, thoughtful, giving, and loving person that I know. He does SO much for me, and this is just a small example of the way that he treats me every day. I truly do not deserve him.
Here are the before and after photos.
Here is the little annex to our room that goes out to the balcony. The vintage bassinet is handed around from cousin to cousin- the baby will sleep in here until we move him to his nursery.

I love how the dark paint makes the fire place pop!
So pretty! I LOVE how it turned out!
And here is the view from our balcony.
Thanks Mike, you're the BEST HUSBAND EVER.
