Old Nursery

I, or should I say, my pregnancy brain went back and forth trying to decide wether to make the smallest bedroom in the house into the nursery or to move our 2-year old and create a boy's bedroom for him instead, leaving his old nursery in place for the new baby.  We finally decided to make the little bedroom the nursery.  So before dismantling the old nursery, I wanted to preserve it in pictures.

  8. I love your nursery! I went to get the paint color today and they gave me one of each color (not mixed.) I said that I think you had mixed the 2 together and they said it wouldn't change the color that much?????? Did you have them mix the 2? Thanks so much!

  9. Kristy,

    I actually only bought one of the two colors initially (I can't remember which one -I think the one that's more blue) and it was too blue when I put it on the walls only because of the way it looked in the actual room and the lighting. So then I went back and got the second color that I think is a little bit more green and I mixed them together at home.

    I don't think it makes a huge difference, but I had such a specific hue in mind when I painted it that after mixing these two together I got exactly what I wanted.

    Good luck!

  10. Thanks so much! One is MUCH too blue, the one that is more green is better...I may just go with that! THanks so much for your response! Also, did you make your crib sheet set yourself? Do you make/sell custom sets? If so, let me know, I am very interested! :)

  11. Kristy,

    I did make the crib sheet and the duvet cover for the crib. I also made a new set for the new baby's nursery (I haven't posted pictures yet).

    Leave me your e-mail or send me a direct e-mail and I'll reply to you personally. Thanks.

  17. Hi there -

    I love love love the color of this nursery and wanted to paint my son's room this color. For the Behr paint, are those 2 colors mixed together since there are 2 sets of numbers? If you could email me at CCSimmons79@aol.com I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks for the great post. The room is spectacular.
