Well...that was beginning of October.
Between both of us working full time, as well as Nate being broken from manual labor all day, and me being broken from the slight frontal obstruction I have, we are on day 5,323 of painting. ...or something like that.
So far, we have 3 coats of primer up to mask the mud/tape from drywalling, as well as un-knotting the bead board. We also have three coats of color, two coats of white and a coat of ceiling paint up.
...and we haven't even thought about getting to the playroom yet.
This process has been so. slow.
Let's remember what it looked like when we started...
And then when we got it looking like a...relative blank slate...
I don't know why my photos turned out so weird...probably has something to do with the fact that it's been storming here for over a week. But here is where we are at. We had a green color matched from the piece of fabric I have (my mom took a whole bolt of it back to Chicago to work on textiles for me)
To get a "more true" version of the color (since light can get through fabric) we put a very light green paint chip behind the fabric before we scanned. It's almost like a key lime color? Here is the lid from Home Depot.
And here is how it looks in the space. It's actually a little bit more...mellow than this. I think the storm outside messed with some pictures. Hopefully we'll get some better ones soon.
The three bead board walls are staying solid white, so the green is just a splash of color that you can see from the hallway. We're going to bring the green around in other ways (like some awesome drawer pulls you may have seen on IG yesterday)
The one thing I am really considering doing is some kind of paint treatment on the ceiling since the rest of the room is so tame- though I don't know if I want to start something when we both are having a hard time being up on a ladder right now.
It's very interesting to me that when we first started this room, I thought it was going to be like blue guy from Wild Things.
Hopefully we'll be done painting the nursery this week- I have baby showers coming up in about 3 weeks and I would love to have everything in place so we can just put things away right after the shower.
How is everyone doing?
