Baby room – in progress
I’ve been very slack updating since Easter. There’s a lot going on here at present: I have three weeks to go with my pregnancy, have finished up work and are now anxious to get the house in order and some things made.
Over Easter we painted the baby’s room. It took more coats of paint than we thought and we still need to arrange the furniture and decorate, but here are progress pictures.
Before – a rather bold shade of yellow that made everything look..yellow!
During – a couple of coats of Dulux Shutterbug, but the yellow still pokes through.
After: No more yellow! Painting the trims, upper walls and ceiling white made a huge difference to the light in this room.
Curtains – the curtains were already in the room. They matched the yellow, but surprisingly they also work with the shutterbug as it picks up the softer colours and tones down the brighter ones. They wouldn’t be my first choice (or 100th) of curtains, but they’re good quality and insulated, so they stay.
I’m looking forward to getting the rest of the room in order now.
