To begin with, I cleared out the room, covered the floor and light fixture in plastic, removed the outlet covers, removed the blinds and curtain rod, and taped around the windows, trim and doors. By the way, I dislike prepping a room to paint, it takes way too long. The walls and the ceiling were both beige, so I decided to use my paint sprayer to prime the rooms and then continued to use the paint sprayer to paint the ceiling white. Then I chose a bright blue to paint the walls, specifically Olympic paint in Blue Dart. The Olympic brand of paint, from Lowes, is awesome with low odor and zero VOC's, especially when you are painting during your pregnancy.
I really like the way it turned out and love the color with the white trim and doors.
Now, I just need to find a home for everything that was previously stored in the room, oh and finish decorating his room and getting everything cleaned and organized. Luckily, we have pretty much everything we need for this little guy, since he's coming almost exactly three years from when his big brother, Parker, was born. Stay tuned for more nursery projects and updates.
Happy Champagne Thursday!
