Transitioning from DS#1 to DS#2, **FINISHED** matching cake!

Postby shebro » Thu Dec 13, 2007 8:12 am

Blayne's room progress...

Here's how it was painted for DS when it was his nursery, this is when we first built our house, painted and moved in, we never really took pics when it was fully decorated, and now DS is in his big boy room.

Transitioning to Blayne's room
Here's Step #1 - Priming the top portion

Image
Image

Here's Step #2 - Painting the top the gold color

Image
Image

Steps remaining....painting the green vertical stripes in the blue, and the merlot horiztonal stripe (where the white 'chair rail' stripe is)

Here's Blayne's bedding
Image

The dark blue doesn't match the bedding all that perfectly, but I'm hoping with a green vertical stripe in the blue it will look good. DH didn't really want to prime and paint the whole entire room....that was A LOT of blue! Every other color we picked, the gold, green and merlot, were all matched to the bedding. The website picture looks a little different than the colors in real life.
Hopefully we'll finish before Christmas....taping off the green vertical stripes should be fun :lol:

Got the merlot red stripe painted and a sample of the green color.
Since the merlot so was deep a red, it needed a special tinted primer (2 coats) and 2 coats of the red.
Hopefully get this knocked out by the end of the week.
Still need to tape and paint the green stripes and than touch up all the lines.

Taped off the stripes and painted the blue along the tape line to prevent bleed through.
We'll prime and paint the green tonight and we'll be done! :jump:

Thanks. I can't wait to see it all finished too! DH has tomorrow and Friday off work so he'll do all the touch up paint tomorrow, then we can put the furniture where it belongs. I still need to buy decor though!

This nursery is SO cute - I love the colors! Where'd you get the name letters done or did you make them yourself? My bedding has a lot of dots and stripes on it - so I really like the letters in the circles!

Thanks. We bought just the letters at Michaels Craft store, then DH cut the circles out of wood, sanded them, painted everything and mounted them. They sell circles of wood at Michaels but they want like $4 a piece, the piece of wood was $7 at Lowe's and it was big enough for all 6 circles.
