Baby Room Update

I did it - I painted the baby room! I can now cross one more thing off my list of things left to do in the room...

I always forget how much work it is to paint until I actually start the process. After taking basically a whole day to tape and get the room ready - I was finally able to put some paint on the walls. After one coat of primer and two coats of orange paint - the room was done.

In the end, I am really happy with the color. It is a little "oranger" than I had originally wanted, but I think it is a really nice color. It is a very cheerful and happy color, not girly at all and not too overwhelming. I especially think that once all the dark wood furniture and the wall art is up - it will look amazing.

Before

and after...

At this point in time, we are still using the room as an extra guest room - hence the bed and sewing table that are still in the room. The other furniture (the white bookcases, high chair & kid rocking chair) are staying in the room and once the crib & dresser arrive, we can finally set up the room as I have it pictured in my head! I am so excited for that day!
