The Painting of a Baby's Room

I finally finished painting the baby's room. If I do say so myself I think it turned out excellent!
Here is how the project went:

1. Take down wall paper trim, tape the middle line and prime the upper half.

2. Paint the upper half green.

3. Re-tape the middle line on the green half.

4. Paint the bottom half brown.

5. Find circles in 3 sizes, a large kitchen lid, a hula-hoop, and a garbage can lid traced on the floor at Target

5. Trace circles on the walls with templates

6. Tediously touch up the middle line

7. Paint the circles in contrasting colors. Decide the first circle is to fat, decide to paint circles thinner.

9. Final product

What do you think? I love it. I am so happy with the way it turned out. I can't wait for all the furniture, baby stuff, and of course the baby!


  1. Callie - It looks amazingly adorable. Love the colors and the circles. You did a painstaking great job. Kudos and pat on your back.

  2. WOW, you rock!!! How fun fun fun! Glad you only work 3 days a week, so you have more time to do stuff at your house as you are so darn good at it.
