Baby Bowl Blue & The Real Thing...

You already know what inspired the color for the nursery, so now you can see the fruits of our labor (and my obsessive hunting for just the right paint color...) We're beyond pleased with the "Appleton" color by California Paints, and were actually pleasantly surprised by the finish as well. It has an interesting, slightly chalky quality that is rather nice-- John even said he "sort of likes how it goes on" which is a big compliment coming from an ardent Benjamin Moore supporter.

Believe it or not, I woke up this morning and primed our bedroom before I had to leave for work, so hopefully, we're going to tackle that room tonight. Sadly, we can't move back into our bedroom (and out of the dining room!) until we paint the floors in the bedroom, nursery, and hallway; but at least painting the walls will bring us one step closer to completion. 

Ooooohhhh--weeeee.... Our patience is being tested here. The to-be-completed-before-the-baby-arrives list is a long one, which seems to be getting longer, not shorter almost everyday. Good thing we have such a strong motivation to stay on task.... 


Check back soon for updates on our progress... Hopefully we'll have lots to report. : )
