We have progress in the baby’s room. After weeks of checking out the paint chips on our walls, we decided on By the Sea. It doesn’t look too bright in the room, since our bedrooms are pretty dark (so much shade from the ginormous oak trees in our house!)
We went with the Olympic paint sold at Lowes. It’s no-VOC (though I’ve read that the percentage of VOC jumps 25% as soon as you add color to the paint.) It’ll at least be safer for me to be around, though I’m still not going to paint the room myself. I’m leaving that to Kenny, my mom and/or any friends who want to come over and do the (smallish) job.
And the bedding has been ordered. We went with something I found online, but it had great reviews (and for the price – under $100 for everything – I couldn’t pass it up.) It should be here next Monday. Probably well before the crib is in place, so no worries.
Of course, as soon as looked at the bedding next to the paint chip (online so the colors are always different), the blue in the bedding is definitely not as bright as the wall color. I’m hoping it ends up NOT an issue. We shall see.
Progress. I love it.
Totally unrelated, but have you seen this video?
I love it. It makes me even more sad that Adele had to cancel her tour (though, it saves me quite a bit of money. We hadn’t bought tickets yet, but I was very close to purchasing them.)
