Working on the Nursery

Have I told you our plans for the nursery yet? Well, let me enlighten you! I'm so excited because we finally got started on it yesterday.

Our spare room is/was green. Very bright green. The color is called Honeydew and let me tell you it definitely brightens up a room! While I like the color, it was a bit much for me. I really want to do something to detract from the bright green, but wasn't sure what to do. Originally I thought about striping the room with another, darker green. Then I thought about painting the bottom half of the walls darker green. Then I had my best idea yet and thought maybe I could find a nice border with that bright green and some other color in it so I could bring another color onto the walls. After a little research, I found the perfect border here. Went to the actual store (which was an adventure in itself thanks to part of the highway being closed) and luckily they had it! It's a discontinued item so I was worried.

So, after finding the border, I got a zillion paint samples and we matched up the blue that's on the border. Yesterday we painted the top 1/3 or so of the wall blue. Now we just have to get the border up (it's going to divide the two colors). If we can do it (never done a border before) I think it'll turn out really cute! I'm super excited to get it done and terrified to get started because I'm afraid we're going to screw up the border. Wish us lots of luck please!

Oh, yes. Lots of luck on the border, indeed. We've never attempted wallpaper, but I'll bet it will work out great. It's very cute.
