It has been a bit quiet around the blog for the past few months as I’ve been busy locked in baby preparation mode. T-Minus 4 weeks. Most of that was evenings and weekends spent transforming my old office into the new nursery…and what a transformation it has been:
One of the most notable parts of the new Nursery (notable for us photographers) was my effort to bring back the picture rail. You typically see picture rails in Victorian era houses, sometimes right beneath the crown molding, sometimes a foot or more down from a tall ceiling.
So, what are they for? Just as the name implies, hanging pictures from. No more nails in wall, or being locked into one picture or another hanging in the room for a long time. Picture rails allow you to change up your photos or art work regularly and without breaking out the touch up paint. The nursery was the second room in our house that I installed picture rails in. The thin line you see toward the bottom of the crown molding is the small gap between the crown molding and the picture rail.
Now that everything else in the nursery is done (just waiting for the last pieces of furniture to arrive) I finally have time to get some photos up on the walls…and more up here on the blog. The mad dash to delivery will be filled with photo processing…
