|Before - Plain Cream Walls|
We had a few things to consider when choosing a color for our girl's room:
1. I hate super girly colors. This room was never going to be pink or purple.
2. I don't like feeling like I have to re-paint, so gender-neutral was a must (no, we're not planning for baby number two, but what if someone made a mistake and we have a boy?).
3. We live in a rental and need to keep the walls a color that is relatively easy to change.
For these reasons, we set out to find a nice blue-green hue for the walls. I think we significantly depleted Lowe's paint chips in the process, but we finally settled on "Delicate Mist."
After moving all the furniture out, I taped around the baseboards and the ceiling, cut in, and rolled the walls. Two coats and 24 hours later, I painted the baseboards white. The end result is subtle and spa-like. I love it!
