The Great Green Room
We decided to paint the nursery green. Since we had to go gender neutral, it was really either yellow or green to match our bedding. I read some about color therapy and everything said that yellow makes fussy babies....so we went with green. But not just any green, REALLY green. It took a few tester cans to get it right, but I am pleased with the bright, cheery finished product. I am usually afraid of color and tend to stick with neutrals.....but I like it. :)
The Book Shelf
We found this cute little book shelf at the same resale shop as the dresser for 10 big ones. It is solid wood and sturdy and I knew we could fix it up real cute like. Since Scott has been laboring over the crib for the last few months (more on THAT later), I decided to take on this little project myself. He sanded it, I primed and painted. We then popped the back part off to get rid of the lovely yellow. I really wanted to cover it with a cute fabric, but was having a hard time finding one to match the decor. Enter supermom. She found a random extra bed skirt on Ebay that is the same as my bedding so we decided to use that.
