Before we left for Europe I was hounding my poor husband to complete a couple 'Honey-do' things on my baby list. This included painting the nursery. The only problem was, I didn't have a paint color nailed down yet. I knew I wanted a neutral color, something that could be easily mixed with other fun pops-of-color for when our little bundle arrives, but something not too boring. And I wanted it to be calming and warm.
And since I couldn't nail down the color that I wanted before we left, he made me promise to stop bugging him till after we got back. Which gave me another month to think about what color I wanted to go with. So I took my time choosing and in the end a classic light grey won out. CIL's Barley Beige to be exact.
It's a soft, bluish-beige grey that will blend perfectly with the other pop colors that I am thinking about using once we know it's a boy or girl. I also love the clean and calm feeling it gives me the minute I enter the room. Very warm and inviting [although, the shade is slightly off in these photos].
And I have to give the man credit. He was true to his word and the week we got back he tackled the nursery. Painted the entire thing. Even put together our new dresser [above].
Next up for him...hanging baby's new light fixture, putting together the bookcase, swapping out the dresser's knobs and installing some shelves.
Next up for me...nailing down my color palette, painting some polka dots, organizing the closet, dresser, and bookcase and choosing fabrics for crib bedding and fun accessories [anyone out there know where I can order any cool modern fabrics?]
Geez, baby is really coming up fast!
