Most of the work has been done on the baby room for a while, by default. The walls were the color I wanted, we had almost all the furniture we wanted already. I do want to pull up the carpet at some point and have the hardwood underneath repaired/refurbished, but that may not happen until after baby is born. We'll see. (I'll gladly take recommendations if anyone knows someone good locally to hire for the job.)
But, there are a couple small projects still to be done. One of which was to cover up some discolorations on the modular furniture we are using in place of a dresser.
I've had this furniture since I was a kid. Dad painted and assembled it, and since it's particle board I well remember how he slaved over the immense quantity of paint it all soaked up. Ideally, we should repaint it. 20+ years of use, plus being moved 6 times has left some damage to the finish. But, there were really only a couple places that were discolored, and I thought of a quick fix to cover up the worst of it in a fun way.
Mod podge! Woo!
Here's the finished product. Just needed to cover up these two sides, and I used black and white scrapbook paper cut into random shapes and sizes. I think it works nicely! It's far from perfect, there are some bubbles/wrinkles in the paper, but as a temporary fix until we get around to repainting all of it, I think it will be just fine. (The flat, un-mod-podged bit under the window is where the changing pad will go.)
