Today I was off work for the 4th of July, and Luke and I painted the baby's room! We used Benjamin Moore Palladian Blue, and I can now safely say that nearly my entire house is blue...just the way I like it!
Thursday night we moved all the guest room furniture out and the baby things in. I tested out the paint on our butter-yellow wall... it was a perfect pale blue-green.
This morning, we went on a walk and then we got to work. Luke did the cutting in and I did the rolling.
And voila! Our beautiful new baby's room! You can see the mismatched chair and ottoman I picked up at the Jr. League garage sale and had recovered. I painted that little desk a glossy white and got milk glass handles for it.
This painting is by my mom--it is of my playhouse that Dad built it for me when I was little. The playhouse used to be pink. Funny enough, it's now Palladian blue.
(Here's the playhouse today! Back in action!)
Here I am cooking dinner at the party kitchen:
We put together the Ikea dresser a few weeks ago, and hung the shelf over it...baby girl's "wardrobe"!
