I have never really considered myself as a “crafty” person. Yet, somehow I ended up repainting preeeeeeeeety much everything in this room.
A little background…….we bought our house a little over 11 years ago ( Yes, we were babies at the time, clearly) and over time, the room has gone through a couple of different uses before ending up as Siennas transition to big girl room.
Before Lyla, age 6, was born I went into full on nesting mode and bought all of the necessary furniture to transform Wayne’s then office into a nursery. We didn’t find out the sex of the baby so I painted everything a VERY bright and sunny yellow, gender neutral all the way, and that is how it stayed until last week. I figured that it was about time that we modernize the nursery a bit.I chose to go with a black and white color scheme on the walls because the nursery is directly across from our bedroom which has white walls and a black ceiling. I wanted to echo what was happening in our room because our house is small, really small and we usually leave all of our interior doors open. So I figured that It would make everything seem a bit calmer to have a cohesive overall color scheme.
I spotted this chair in our alley one morning on our way to school. I am a sucker for anything with caning and thought It had great bones so I threw in in the back of the car. The coat hook was another thrift find…..$2 at a rummage sale.While I painted the nursery over a weekend the girls were able to have a “sister sleep over” in Lyla’s room so they didn’t really get to see a lot while it was being painted. Once I did the big reveal Lyla asked if I could paint her room next…..So, be on the lookout for that, but right now mama is going to hang up the paint brush for the time being.
