There is nothing like a fresh coat of paint


Pretty soon this room is actually going to start looking like something.
I am excited.
And awfully grateful that Mr Renn was willing to paint for me.
3rd trimester + poorly ventilated rooms+ climbing ladders = bad combination for painting.
The paint for the walls was supposed to be matched to Martha Stewart's "Rainwater"

 but the paint matching machine at Mr Renn's alma mater Ace Hardware was broken, so I picked a new color right in the store, Pratt & Lambert's "Nevada Sky", and I'm pretty pleased with it.

With this done, (almost done) I have an awfully long to-do list for next week!  Lots to do, and this baby will come whether I finish it all or not!

Yay for pretty painted walls! I'm so excited to see all you're doing!

I can't wait to see more! And true, the baby will come, finished or not. I'm at the point that I just say "oh well, bring on the baby". Good luck!

Cute color. I really like your sense of aesthetics, so I can't wait to see the finished product.

I can tell it will be lovely! I have a very similar wall color picked out for Emma's room, plus some main line thrift store treasures to jazz up. LOVE the turquoise. It has always been my favorite color. Let's hope the soothing color is absorbed by your baby boy!
