The first time I painted I had different bedding and the walls were bright green. Kind of like this:
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.
