Finally! Finally this weekend Mike and I finished painting the nursery. By finished painting, I mean we literally painted the walls, paneled accent wall, crown molding, baseboards and closet in a matter of a day. So I guess you can consider this post a paint reveal, a finished accent wall reveal and a completed crown molding reveal. Weeeee!
I guess I’ll let the pictures do the talking?
Wait, quick interruption already. We ordered a silver tipped light bulb to see if that reduces the glare of our diffuser-less light fixture. When we switch the bulbs out, we’ll be sure to rotate the shade so that the seam is not smack in your face when you walk in the door. Okay back to the pictures!
No post is complete without a photobombing cat. That’s Mowie, you don’t see her often and she thinks she’s finally getting a room away from her two brothers. Oh another note, the floors still need to be cleaned from all of the construction in here…
You probably noticed that we took the closet doors off. We’re planning on hanging curtains and installing a closet organization system.
Kitten tested, kitten approved! They’re loving the 75 degree weather we had today
Here’s a quick recap for anyone interested…
Paint Colors (all Olympic paints):
Ceiling- Comes the Dawn D52-2
Walls- Gray Ghost D17-2
Closet- Lettuce Alone B68-3
Trim- Crumb Cookie C20-1
Overall, we are very happy with how everything turned out. It took us a little longer than usual to settle on the perfect gray for the walls, but we’re very happy with our final choice (which is one of the colors from our office stripes!) Mike loves the green closet and I’m still adjusting to the bold color, but I know once it has a white wood closet system on top of it and some curtains it will be less of a solid green mass. Plus I am likely going to stencil it, once I do a trial run to confirm. Now it’s on to buying furniture and adding details! Fingers are crossed for smooth sailing from here on out…
