Just Because it’s a Kid’s Room…

11 May

Just because it is a kid’s room doesn’t mean it doesn’t matter.

We have been making many paint decisions during the past week.  Choosing paint for the whole  inside of a house can be a bit overwhelming because you don’t want to make the wrong choices.  I must say that paint on a little card looks quite different than paint covering a wall.

Needless to say, we flubbed it up on the kids play room.  This is the fabric I am going to make curtains out of:

so we decided to paint the room green and orange.  Not good:

The colors together were both ugly and also unsettling to look at.

Jared and I walked around the house painting other rooms as we kept glancing into the kids room questioningly.  We kept thinking, ah, it’ll be fine- it’s the kids room.  It will be fine.

The biggest reason we didn’t want to repaint the room was an issue of time and effort.  If we kept the room green and orange it would be done!  But we couldn’t do that to ourselves or our new house.

This is a room that we are going to be spending A LOT of time in.  All the kids toys are in this room and we want it to be athsetically pleasing, inviting and friendly to both adults and kids.

We decided to paint over the green paint with white.  I am SO glad we bit the bullet and put in the extra work.  Here is the room:

I am working on curtains right now and they are going to tie the room together and put the finishing touch on this fun room.  Can’t wait to show you-
