Nursery Paint Complete

I am so excited!!!

We have finally made a lot of progress on the nursery. It started with the last post where I had picked out some curtains from a bedding set I liked (Bananafish Joshua). Once we saw the curtains in person and decided to keep them as the foundation of the room we were set!

First was Easter weekend when my parents and sister came to visit. In preparation, J pulled up the baseboards and gave the walls a 2 good coats of paint. We selected Valsapar Firmament (5003-8C) in an eggshell. I wish we had done a flat paint because the texture of the walls makes it seem a bit shiny, but hopefully this will hold up well. At first it seemed very dark and very turquoise. The Saturday that my parents were here, they all helped to paint the baseboards, crown molding, and the closet doors. By Saturday night we had made huge progress and got it all hung.

This week J has been busy doing the touch up work on the paint. Finally last night when I got home he had hung the curtains again finally! They looked great against the teal walls!

BananaFish Joshua Curtains are up!

Last week we ordered the BananaFish Joshua curtains to see what they would look like in our nursery. We wanted to see the actual fabric and the colors before picking a paint color. Online, I wasn’t too sure if these would be too "boyish" but the top green is a very cute polka dot pattern that I think makes it a bit feminine. I can’t wait to start actually adding items to the nursery now that we have a starting point!


I am still thinking we are going to go with the teal/turquoise walls. I think it will make the curtains show up a little bit better. We also are hoping to paint the trim white and add new baseboards and crown molding. For bedding, we are going to try to find a white crib and use either green or white bedding to make it simple. I am hoping to be able to copy the animal shapes in the curtains and maybe make some wall decor too!
