My mother-in-law painted our nursery and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out! We used SW Gleeful and it is just perfect! It looks like such a fresh new room now with new carpeting and a fresh coat of cheery paint.
It looks a bit brighter in the room than this swatch looks on my monitor, but you get the idea. Chartreuse is my favorite color and I knew it would be easy to accesorize with blue or pink, although we are not very gender specific anyway… The crib and dresser/changing table will be white. The crib has been a bit of a fiasco, but that is for another post. For now, though, I will show you the other pieces in my plan.
We will use this dresser with a pad on top for changing. I think it will be a bit handier and more useful later than a traditional dedicated changing table.
For a nursing chair, I had originally purchased a glider from Craigslist with the intention of recovering it. The more I think about it, though, the more I think that I could just as easily repurpose a chair from the living room – with a new cushion of course. I only paid $20 for the glider, so I am certain I can easily re-sell it for at least what I paid if not a little more.
I think the navy will be a nice crisp compliment to the bright green walls and the other white furniture.
I am also eying this side table so that I will have somewhere to put a lamp.
I would like to keep it simple in the room without a lot of clutter so that there is plenty of free floor space to set up a play mat or to pull out books and toys once the baby is older.
For decoration, I like the idea of these floating shelves for a dynamic display of pictures, stuffed animals, and trinkets.
That is all I have for now – more on the crib later. Fingers crossed!
