Painting our own baby room in Placentia CA
So over the years I’ve seen my husband (owner of Le Tourneau painting) paint a lot of baby’s rooms, or nurseries, and I always thought they were adorable. Decorating a baby’s room or nursery was never something I thought about until last summer when we found out we were having a baby of our own. After the morning sickness settled and the reality set in, I began to brainstorm what kind of room I wanted for our baby and how I wanted it painted. I decided to wait until we found out what we were having. Once I found out a girl was on the way, I then wondered if I wanted it painted girlie or more neutral. I’d seen many "pinkalicious” rooms and decided that was not for me. Before we found out about our daughter, her room was going to be my sewing/craft room and I was going to have my husband paint yellow horizontal stripes around the room. Since I had already picked out the yellow paint and bought it, I figured I might as well use it. So, at that point I had to figure out if I still wanted stripes painted. Hmmm, did I want painted stripes, a faux finish, diamonds, polka dots, or an accent wall painted??? Being married to a painter my choices were endless. I ended up doing the painted horizontal stripes I had originally wanted for what was supposed to
be my sewing room and I love them!! My husband had a personalized sign made for the wall and framed it out to look like a built in custom picture frame. I also bought two cork boards for her wall and he framed those out too. I use the cork boards for pictures, cards, notes, ect and change them out frequently. My daughter’s room is painted exactly what I didn’t know I wanted. It all kind of fell together and it is perfect-just like my family!
