When I was pregnant, I never really put any effort into doing up his nursery. I didn’t feel like painting the room since the rest of the house wasn’t painted and didn’t really do much in the way of decorating. When I made the decision to take the side off his crib and turn it into a big boy bed, I figured I would give the whole room a makeover. The walls were full of holes from moving pictures all over the place, so figured some paint would be necessary. I’d never really painted before and am not the best at decorating but I knew that I wanted to be able to utilize the colours already existing (blue curtains, brown furniture). I also knew that I wanted to keep it modern, free of kiddie prints, and be something that transitions well as he gets older.
I forgot to take before photos, but the walls were white and it was pretty plain.
Sorry for the terrible quality iPhone pics, but you get the idea…
I’m really happy with how it all turned out. I had a hard time matching blues so there are a bunch of different shades but it seems to really work and I love it. My favourite parts are the pictures on the wall, I hung some photos of family since Liam really loves looking at the photos in the kitchen. I also framed some of his paintings and hope to continue to grow the gallery wall with more photos and paintings as time goes by. The wall colour turned out great too!
I’m pretty sure this is now my favourite room in the house. I can’t believe it all came together in one day. I kind of want to paint my own room now!
