The next change to the nursery was a pretty big one. The walls are green now. And I love them. I was able to take my fabric to the paint store to find something that coordinates. Thanks to a freak occurrence with our paint going bad during the home=building process, I was owed a free can of paint. Woohoo! That's a price I can afford.
I chose a green color that wouldn't be overwhelming. I avoided yellow like the plague. Several years ago I attended a teaching conference, including a class on color and how it affects people. The presenter said that babies in yellow rooms tend to cry more. Yeah, sign me up for that. Sure.

I am really happy with the finished product. The color is both vibrant and inviting. I'm super proud of the job I did, even if I do have touch ups to do on the ceiling. There are tons of painting tips and tutorials to be found online. If you want to tackle painting a room it's good to watch a lot of them...and actually use the tips.
The color I used was Lemon Thyme from Kwal. It's a bit warmer color than I would usually choose but it goes with the nursery fabric. Turns out that a gallon of paint was exactly how much I needed to get two coats of paint. I have just enough left to do touch-ups.
This wall and the dresser need more work to make the space more visually appealing. I'm trying to figure out what I can do with some art of pictures. We'll see. I do have one favorite addition to the nursery. With this little guy in there how can anyone notice anything else?
