Painting the Nursery - Part 2

Yesterday we left off where Tom had primed all the trim, then he was able to get a fresh coat of white paint on the trim to match the rest of the house (finally!).

I always love me some fresh white trim - don't you?

Here's a quick before and after of the closet trim:

After the trim had some time to dry, it was time to paint the ceiling and inside of the closet a fun light blue color...

On Labor Day (hah!), Tom's Mom also came over to help out with the painting party, and the final coat of light gray went up on the walls. Hallelujah!

And here's the room with all new fresh paint:

Looking pretty good, am I right? We're both absolutely loving the ceiling and the closet - those touches of blue really add a little whimsy and interest to the space. And of course we still have a few small things to do in here, like replacing outlets and covers, installing some new air vents, and scraping off the window paint using this method.

But really? We're totally digging the new room.

  1. Looks great!!! The white trim makes a huge difference and the blue ceiling is too cute for words. I can already picture the finished result, but can't wait for more updates!

  2. Hooray paint! :)


  3. Paint color is great! We did a blue ceiling in our first baby's room too!
