Up next on our home reveal: L’s room!

Here’s a few before shots to show you what the room looked like when we first moved in:



After moving in, our first priority was to get L’s room ready for him. Jord and I were both off for the week that we moved in, and I got right to work painting!

I chose a paint color by Benjamin Moore called Palladian Blue for L’s room – I became smitten with the color after seeing Katie’s office over on Bower Power, and I knew that it would be the perfect blue-green hue for L’s room.

After the walls were painted (uffda, painting was exhausting, especially when I discovered that the taping I had so meticulously done – with some help from family members – hadn’t safeguarded our woodwork to my standards! In fact, I still need to do a little touch-up around the ceiling…), my mother and I got to work decorating the room. Much of L’s things transferred well from our apartment to our home, so a lot of the decor has been re-purposed! We purchased a new crib sheet (grey and white polka dots!) from Target for the room, as well as a fun metal bucket to hold blankets, cloth diapers and/or toys, but that’s all.

L’s room has changed quite a bit since we moved in – we originally used the 2×4 Expedit shelving unit from IKEA (we have the black one) to store toys, books and stuffed animals and to use as a changing table, but L has since outgrown the need for a changing table (sniff), so we’ve shuffled some furniture around. In the next month, we plan to add a low dresser (repurposed from my childhood!) that will be painted in a gradient finish in a variety of blue hues (update on the blue paint colors: I HATED the colors I mentioned in my last post, where I first introduced the gradient idea, so here’s a shot of the colors that I decided on (the three on the far right, beginning with Palladian Blue at the top), after seeing them “in real life” in our local Benjamin Moore store:


Much better, right? And now, back to our regular programming…)

And now, the grand reveal: here’s L’s room! This first picture is the most accurate depiction of the color of the walls – I’m such a bad blogger that I shot the other photos at night.

I created all of the artwork above the crib, with the exception of the “L” print, which I customized via On to Baby.

No matter how innovative or needed or just-get-in-my-cart-already your new service or product may be, if your website isn’t fine-tuned and turned up to level awesome, your launch could FALL. FLAT.

Don’t let that happen! Hire a fresh set of eyes (ahem, ME) to audit your site before you hit GO.
