painting the nursery

While we have lived in our home for almost two years, we have not taken a paint brush to a single wall. The house was almost new when we settled in and the builder’s cream colored walls have been “fine” for us until this point. I suppose part of our hesitation around painting has been deciding which colors to commit to. We are not in love with our current living room furniture, so can we really paint the walls now not knowing what our future couch will be like? This has been our typical rationale. Then we found out we were having a baby and everything changed. As soon as we heard the news, I turned to David and said “We should really paint the nursery don’t you think?”  Surprisingly he agreed right away. We waited until we knew if we were having a boy or a girl and then decided to tackle the color game.

Staring at shades of gray and blue is not an easy task. The nuance of color left us a bit confused as to what to select. Every time we were convinced we had selected our paint, we would look “one last time” and find another four paints that might be better selections. Too confused, I left the decision to David since in the end he would be the one actually painting the room. He selected three colors for the room that followed the concept of sea, sand, and sky. Early Saturday morning, David and Laura got to work on the baby room while I napped and ran errands. They worked efficiently and fast and just after lunch the room was complete!  Even though it is the only room with color on the walls in our home, I am totally in love the with space. Clearly, we need to add more color to the rest of the house now, but I am so excited to have the nursery painted so far.  Time to  just  sit tight until the little man arrives!
