We started painting the nursery yesterday! It was Tyler’s day off, and I had decided that I really wanted to paint the room, since it was painted a bright blue, and all of the bedding and everything we got for our little girl had a real ‘classic girly’ feel to it. So, we went to Lowe’s, got our paint mixed (finally found a use for that Color-Aid paper left over from college), came home, primered the entire room (including the trim), and painted the first color.

We’re actually going to do a lot of work on the painting in the room. We’re using 4 colors, and I think it will take us until Monday before we’re done with the painting. I already kind of miss the blue, but I think our little girl’s room will end up looking absolutely beautiful!

So, here are the ‘before’ pictures:





And here are the pictures I took today after ‘Step 1′ in the painting process had dried:





Yes, that green is pretty close to what it looks like in real life (depending on the color settings on your monitor…it looks about right on my machine). It came out a little darker/brighter than I wanted, but its just about a light, mint green. Cross your fingers that it turns out looking awesome! I’ll add more pictures once we get the next step done.
