3rd Time's the Charm

Woo hoo!  I actually got something done this weekend.  The picture above is a little sneak peak of my nursery change-up.   I painted the nursery on Saturday for the third time.    I think I finally got it right.

The first time I painted I had different bedding and the walls were bright green.  Kind of like this:
The paint I just covered up was perfect in dim light, but the blue was way too saturated in the daylight.  I usually ended up toning it down in pictures, but this is what it really looked like with no tweaking. 

Now the nursery looks fresh and clean and bright!  Painting took quite a bit of time, but it did not take much money.  I only paid $20 for the white paint and I mixed the blue from paint we already had.  The white paint is actually Glidden ceiling paint.  It's only $10 a gallon at Wal-Mart.  I got it to use as a primer because it was cheaper than primer, but once I got it the walls I liked how it looked so I just did two coats of that and I was done.

I decided to add the stripe because there is so much wall space in this room which only has one window.  The walls needed to be a little bit interesting on their own so I wouldn't have to fill every inch of them up with a frame or shelf or some little accessory that would end up making the room look cluttered.

I'll keep y'all posted on what I'm going to put on the walls as I get things hung and I'll probably have the whole nursery done soon.


Happy Monday!
