The nursery- part one

Before we could even think about setting up the nursery, we had to paint over a terrible paint job. The blue wasn't so bad, but you could see the previous colors through the paint. Here's what it looked like before:And here's the after:

It took 1 coat of primer and 2 coats of paint for the base color. Then, Brandon measured the 6 inch stripe and we had to tape it off. It took 2 coats for the stripe to look right- but that didn't take long at all!
Brandon and my dad hung new wood-like blinds, which has made a big difference in the room as well.
Now, we just need to assemble the crib, shelving and put everything up! My mom is recovering a rocking chair that we bought from one of Brandon's co-workers, so that'll need to be completed as well.
I feel like we're on the right track though- it feels great to have all the painting done!
(ps- we used the Olympic, no VOC paint from Lowes; it rocks! There weren't any fumes!)

Love the color! Next time we paint we are going to use no VOC too!
