So we hyped it up all week by asking if they wanted to help paint their new room. They couldn't wait for the big day to arrive. They kept calling it their office since it used to be Daddy's office. I decided to paint most of it myself and leave some white space for them to paint on and then quick roller over it for the final finish. It worked perfectly!
A little bit about the paint - I got the idea to use a fun green for the upper wall in their room from this post by Jenn of takeabowcreations. It's Sherwin Williams Melange Green SW 6710. The pink I chose is called Partytime SW 6849. Did you know that Home Depot will match those colors too? They even had the color codes already in their system! Did you also know that if you wrap your brush in plastic wrap and put it in the fridge you can use it the next day? I love that trick, because I hate having to wash out my brush when I'm going to need it for the same color a little later.
Not the best shot, but the lighting was bad that time of day,
I promise I'll show more when the room is all done.
Their room is teeny tiny at just 10'x10' so not much else will fit besides two twin beds, which are already on their way. Oh and we have a lovely fuse box to hide on the wall that I painted green. I've decided to hang 3-4 rectangular canvases, vertically, so one can cover it fully. I'll either paint or applique something to stretch over the frame to match their bedding. The lower portion of that wall will be covered in white beadboard.
Here's how I will be decorating their room.
