New House: Liam's Room

   Will be sharing over the next month or so some of the fun we had this summer getting the house ready to move in.  All of the bedrooms were painted a dark taupe with a brown carpeting so it was always our plan to repaint the kid's rooms.

   First up Liam's: When asked what color he wanted his room he said "Geen" and with the help of Behr Color Smart and bringing home some paint chips we were able to narrow it down to three which we then bought samples and tried out on the wall.

  We settled  on Key Lime and got to painting; given that we were going over a dark color I opted for the fancy Paint&Primer and am very glad I did as it is a good size room and already the two coats it took was quite plenty (especially since I still had two more rooms to paint before moving).

We then headed to Tar.get for new sheets. Liam choice was Dinosaur sheets.

We are largely reusing furniture we had except for a Peel&Stick chalkboard and firetruck storage bench both new for his Dinosaur/Fireman room!!


  1. Color! I've been renting so long, I forget there are other options for walls than white. Looks great!

  2. That color is AWESOME! Talk about a happy room.

    By the way, I nominated you for a Liebster today. :)

  3. Whoa baby, such a bright color. That's awesome.
