Nursery Colors

The past few weeks have been a mad dash to finish our nursery renovation.  As of right now, the baby is due in six weeks and we have had no break.  OK, so what I really want to say is I have had no break.  I'm so hoping that in the next week or two we wrap everything up and can just relax until the arrival of our little bundle.

Just as we did the first time, we're not finding out the sex of the baby until the birth.... which leaves us to do what with the nursery.  With Grady's nursery, we went neutral and had fun with murals on the walls.  But this time I really wanted to make the nursery whatever the baby was... but we're making that difficult, aren't we?  We are torn as to leaving the nursery just primed until the baby is born.... and then paint later.... or find a color that can go either way for the walls.... and paint the ceiling a gender color.

So, I have been looking online and have seen some photos of colors I really like....

I love this gray.  And it looks so crisp with the white!

I also really like the gray and yellow together.  Possibly for a boy?  Gray walls with a yellow ceiling?  And I even found a polka dot stencil online.... to do an accent wall maybe?

And here is another example of gray and yellow... although with a newborn I'm pretty sure I will not have the energy to paint stripes!!  We'll stick with a solid ceiling color... but isn't this awesome anyway?

For a girl?  Gray and pink.  This is such a perfect combo to me... it looks so soft and classic!

And on a side note... look at this painted ceiling.  Isn't it great?  I've been hesitant to get creative with our ceilings... afraid that I will make the room look smaller or make it feel like the ceiling is closing down on us.  But this is so pretty...

This is such a great boy's nursery!!  I wish I was this creative!!

So there you have it.  Some of our nursery ideas.  To paint.  Or not to paint.  And what colors?  I mean.... I look and start seeing so many things... I even start thinking... should we just go gender neutral and even choose a pretty green or something??  No idea..... I go back and forth!!

Either way, I hope the room with be finished soon and we can kick back and relax for a few weeks.  During that time, maybe we'll decide!  :)

Ten on Ten: February 2012

It's not fun when someone has already filed taxes under your SSN!!! 

Gearing up for Baby.  Starting to buy diapers, etc with coupons and sales. 

 Back pain is no fun during pregnancy...

We were playing outside, but where on earth did the rain come from?

My little boy's cars all lined up for the Lego car wash...

Hey!  Look what I found today!  My toes!  
I cannot begin to explain what great lengths it took to paint those bad boys.....

Time to read during Nap Time.  :)

Grocery list.... 

Should I be this tired this early?

Time for a Tylenol if I'm going to sleep tonight...
