Nursery Progress Photos



Chris has been working hard.

He's got all the wainscoting and crown molding up, with the first coat of white paint on them. (They will get a second coat soon.)

He's painted the crib white and also re-painted the changing table. Now we need to decide on a wall color....

I'm thinking something similar to what it is now, or maybe a darker brown? I'm torn. Here's a REALLY jenky photo of what brown would potentially look like:



or maybe something like this?



Any opinions are much appreciated!

I love the green...but I've been into yellow a lot this year. It's not an option but I'll throw it out there any way. :)

I love the white furniture. And I'm diggin' the green. Green is very soothing...nice for a nursery. I like the taupe too. Love the wainscoting! Have fun decorating:)

like the lighter color, it makes the room seem cheerier, more open. the green is also nice. have you considered maybe a light gray or periwinkle?

I would recommend green to go with your overall owl theme.

i love the brown...and also, i saw some cute new owl things at target the other day (towels, night light, etc.) and thought of you...which makes me a total creep because you don't know me. haha.

Wow, just beautiful!! I LOVE the green. I always love green, and I think it looks great in a house. You can't go wrong with any of these though. :)

I'm not sure if you look at Pottery Barn Kids stuff, but I saw this in their catalog the other day, and thought it was so cute. I'm sure you can make it, because really who wants to pay $80 for a bean bag cover, especially one that is so adorable and simple.

I definitely love the green, it really would look good with the owls. But whatever you pick will be perfect, just follow your heart.

I'm feeling the brown. The tan is just so....tan. It's great, but it's tan, ya know? But the green totally works too. =) And does your husband fly to california for paint jobs????=)

anna joy said...

chocolate brown is the best! maybe cause it is my favorite color though- i am a little biased. the green is second and i'm not too into the tan for the little man.

Green!...or brown. Or green! Or brown!

I'm torn and would need to flip a coin or something...they're both outstanding choices.

Jiff said...

Green looks best. But ours is a brown in between the two you have up. The green would probably be a nice contrast with all the browns from the owl things.

I think the green will be great with the owls; plus it's much lighter and better for a baby's room. Maybe paint a dark brown silhouette of a tree on the wall, or use dark brown for accent.

I'm pretty partial to the dark brown but the softer color is nice too.
