Okay, friends and family, I need more help! (Do I ask for it too much? I just value my loved ones opinions 🙂
I know all of you are super creative, especially my sisters-in-law, mommy, and lady friends, so I need some ideas.
When we first moved, I got a dresser and nightstand off of Craigslist for baby’s room ($25 dollars for both…. seriously). They were a bit dated and needed some definite cosmetic work, but I saw potential with a little paint and elbow grease.
I took off the (yucky) hardware and removed the chunky and over the top PLASTIC (?) molds from the outside, and have since gone to work filling in the holes and chips, sanding, and priming the smaller nightstand.
If you remember this post, I was hoping to go for a darker green color for them, but I just haven’t been able to find a paint color that feels right. Also, the more I realize how much time we will be spending in that room, the more I feel like a brighter and cheerier color scheme will be better. Everything else like bedding and the crib will be pretty neutral, so I want to give these puppies some color 🙂
At this point, I have been drawn to blues and reds, but I am really open to anything. Also, I am hoping to do both the big and little piece the same color, mostly because I am a cheapo and don’t want to go crazy spendy in the paint section.
For blue, I love these:
And reds, these:
At this point, I don’t have anything decoration-wise for the room, so I am just gonna let the color of them lead me in whatever direction they will. As you can see in the first picture, our walls are a tan/brown color (maybe a little darker than they look) and can’t be painted, so we have to work with that.
Also, can you tell I am the most indecisive person in the world? I realize that these choices are all over the place.
Any ideas? Opinions? Suggestions?
