Well…the nursery makeover is complete! And let me just say I could not be happier with the results. We went from a nondescript yellow…to a bright, bold green…all with the help of the Sherwin-Williams ColorSnap® app! Take a look at the before and after!
It’s amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do for a room, isn’t it? Especially when you choose the right color! And, since choosing the right color is not something that comes naturally to me, I was grateful to have a little help. There’s nothing worse than putting paint on one or two walls, only to discover you don’t actually love the color or the color doesn’t actually match the rest of the room. Since I was matching it to a bedding set, it was especially important to get the color “just right”…and we nailed it!
Painting day felt like a breeze without needing to make extra trips to the paint store, and according to the painters (Jorden and my dad) the HGTV HOME™ by Sherwin-Williams paint was awesome! It went on smoothly and evenly, and they were able to easily finish the entire room with just one can of paint. I don’t know about you, but around here that is almost unheard of.
Of course, as exciting as it was for them, the real excitement for me came in the decorating! I had a blast picking out all the accessories and finishing touches for the room, everything from curtains to a rug to coordinating fabric bins to wall decor. For all the same reasons that it’s important to me to give each new baby her own special nursery, it’s important to me to get the details just right.
I had a lot to work with (owls, birds AND elephants on the bedding?!) and a lot of colors to coordinate. With the bright green walls, I was able to focus on the other colors in the bedding set for the accessories. I went with mostly pinks and purples, with a few other colors thrown in…just to keep things interesting.
My favorite finds?? This fabulous purple and white rug…and the “Dream Big Little One” wall art. But I love it all, and I love the way it all came together with the help of Sherwin-Williams. I am so excited to welcome our new little one into the world…and so happy that her nursery is ready and waiting for her!
