My daughter Kennedy moved into our old room. And if you followed along with our master bedroom makeover, then you'll know I never really like our bedroom. It just never felt right.
When we moved Kennedy into her new room, I didn't love her stuff in this room either. Even though I liked this brown color, I guess I don't like living with this color. There's a difference of course.
So this was Kennedy's nursery before we painted.
That's her...busy playing.
Its a pretty big sized room. I still hate how everything is pressed up against the walls though. But I do think this open space in the middle is great for playing.
Like I said...busy busy busy
That HUGE castle thing was a gift that is about 3 feet wide, and was already built when they gave it to us. She doesn't use it much now to be honest, but I"m sure she will as she gets older.
I painted 3 coats of ultra white by behr. I also painted all the trim, the windows and the doors. I immediately liked the green furniture better. (ps I painted the furniture this color, I've just gotten sick of it, and it got a makeover too.)
Even the castle doesnt seem to be quite as loud with the white walls
And this is where my daughter slept for almost a week. Between painting the walls and the furniture I decided to take my time and do it over a weeks time. This way she wasn't sleeping in the fumes. Plus...I work while she naps or sleeps, doing a baby's room is surprisingly difficult when the baby is in your house.
Anyway...I know it may look a little sterile right now with the white walls, but there's lots coming up.
Tomorrow is painted furniture
Then Friday I'll show you the whole room. Including 2 gallery walls, bookshelves, new bedding and rugs and accessorizing. So don't worry it's all coming together, and you'll get to see it within the next couple days.
I'm sure you're all ready just to see it done!
