The Nursery or as I prefer to think of it – my own personal Everest
I also decided to try some faux painting techniques that I had seen in a magazine. But not content with just one faux painting technique, I decided to combine three. Faux sponge swirling stuff on the top, stripes on the bottom and free hand painted flowers randomly placed on the wall.
May I remind you again it was 3:00 am?
In the 48 hours of the weekend, I think I slept about 3 hours. Dogs were fed but just barely. I can’t remember if I ate.
Halfway through I stepped back and only then realized that the room looked as though someone had puked Pepto Bismal on the walls. I was horrified. I quickly called my friend Lisa who is supposed to pre-approve any color decisions I make – precisely to avoid this kind of debacle. (Do you get the sense this has happened before?) She sighed, asked me why I hadn’t consulted her first and came over. She hid her shock well.
She suggested lightening up the Pepto Bismal Explosion with mixing it with a little white. That was a really good idea. Unfortunately, I was halfway through and wasn’t going to redo the first part… I just couldn’t. I was exhausted.
So you may notice that the side of the room with the crib – is much more Pepto Bismal-ly than the side of the room with the glider.
Many thanks to my friends Lana and Rachel for essentially furnishing this room for me with their donations. Saved me a bundle and looks great. Thanks ladies!
I just hope my child isn’t scarred for life looking at such hideous color and hopefully she won’t be as color challenged as her mother or she’s in for a life of interior decorating pain.
