So the front downstairs bedroom was an extra room when we moved in. We knew it would be a nursery for our next child, but we weren’t sure that 10 months later we would already be in the adoption process. So I brilliantly thought that we would paint it a crazy color and let Owen have a playroom downstairs at least until he got a little brother or sister. Well I maybe picked a terrible color, a painter told me that neon is the best because it really makes the room pop. Well he was absolutely right, it really made the room pop. So I am biding my time until I can paint it a nice neutral (lets be honest, probably another gray) for the new baby when that time gets a little closer. But until then Owen has a very fun, cheery playroom downstairs.
The time has come! Since we are “Officially Awaiting” we painted the awful neon green “nursery”! And I love it. Now the pics don’t really do the nursery justice but I am going to post them anyway. Believe it or not I tried to make it mostly a brown color but it turned out pretty gray. It’s supposed to be a neutral since we have no earthly idea what the gender of our future child is. The curtains are turquoise (same as the playroom) but I figure I can add in some feminine/masculine colors when need be.
