Two weekends ago, my parents came in town to visit and to help us with this seemingly easy task of painting the nursery. Long story short, we originally painted the room a "hue" that was slightly too bright and could have caused some serious sleep issues with Anniston :). After a few other mishaps in between and with our emotions a nice mix of frustration and delirium, we decided to mix our own paint with some colors we already had at the house. The result was this light taupey green (is taupey a word?), and let's keep it between us that it is ironically similar to the original paint color. My resident nursery painter might not exactly be thrilled with that fact, ha. Why does everything have to be difficult? I do, however, think the color turned out perfectly and exactly how I envisioned it...thank you mom, dad, and Stan for doing such a great job!
My most recent little project. This is the before pic of a desk that we got at TJ Maxx at a very good price because the nice manager took $30 off due to scrapes and dings. We decided to make it into a changing table, and we will add storage underneath (i.e. baskets) to make the most use of this space.
I realize that this after pic looks like all I did was change the knobs, but it actually now has two slightly different tones that are hopefully more noticeable in person :).
Maybe you can kind of see the somewhat darker cream in this pic behind the drawer? Oh well, it's been fun to play around with the room, and since we just got the crib in yesterday, there will be more excitement to come as we attempt to put it together!
