Oh hi. Remember this room?
Well, now it looks like this!
We spent pretty much the entire weekend painting. Torsten and I painted the top half together, which took all day Saturday and part of Sunday morning. Then Torsten did some work for his company while I did the bottom part, which took Sunday afternoon and evening.
What can I say? I know that it took us an entire weekend to paint a tiny room, but we aren't exactly professionals. In fact, this was the first time I had ever painted a room, and the first time Torsten had done so in the past 15 years or so.
So, you know. The paint job isn't perfect. There are a few little spots of blue on the baseboards, and a couple little hints of the beige paint that was there before along the edge of the ceiling. But these things aren't visible at all unless you're looking for them, and overall it turned out much better than either of us expected.
In fact, I was a little nervous about the concept and about the colors we chose. I loved the suggestion you all had of the two-tone concept, but I was afraid that we would pick the wrong colors and it would wind up looking jarring and tacky instead of tranquil and appealing.
But, I didn't need to worry! Because I LOVE IT. It was worth the paint in the hair and the blister on my thumb and the backaches and the use of my entire weekend. Because it is PERFECT. I still can't even believe how well it turned out. And Torsten loves it too.
Now, just to be patient until we have reason to furnish it as a nursery! Until then, it will stand empty and I will peek at it every day and bask in its loveliness.
I really cannot get enough of it. In fact, I know I already showed you a picture, but let's see another one, shall we? You can never have enough photos, right? Because LOOK:
