Jackson's Nursery: Phase 1 - Painting the Walls

As I mentioned in my post on Thursday, My mom and dad planned to come over this past Saturday and help paint Jackson's room. My dad does home remodeling and electrical work for a living, so needless to say, he's an excellent painter. Which is why I asked if he could come over and help paint Jackson's room. Of course, being the great Paw paw that he is, he didn't mind helping (painting the room) at all. ☺

As I've shown you all before, we're doing a sea turtle theme in Jackson's room. Here is a link to the room I'm modeling Jackson's nursery after and here is the before, during and after pictures of painting his room over the weekend. I only have the rocker/glider assembled as thats the only full piece of furniture I've recieved so far. The dresser is available for pick-up today and I have box 1 of the crib delivered. I'm still waiting on the second box (which is a whole other blog post).

Here's what the room looked like before, while it was our spare bedroom.

Painting the white over the orange. Thankfully it only took 2 coats. ☺

I matched the blue paint color to the valance I have that came with the bedding set. The paint color is called Glistening Sea by Glidden.

The newly painted nursery with the glider put together! I love the way it turned out and can't wait to get it all furnished and decorated!

Amy, it looks just great. Can't wait to see the finished project! Especially with little Jackson in his new bed. You are blessed with such a talent for decorating, and with such a great hubbie and dad to help you make it all happen.

Thanks Deb. I do feel very blessed to have such great family in my life that are willing to help.

Thanks Liz. I can't wait to get it all furnished and decorated either. I got the dresser on Monday and the second box of the crib is supposed to be delivered today. My dad is coming over tonight to put it all together!!! I can't wait!
