Before - cute baby boy's room
I have used this primer on a few things, and while I don't use it for the coverage (it is pretty transparent) It goes on nicely without drips and does it's job. It was about $18 for the gallon at Home Depot
This is the paint I LOVE using. It is thick and creamy and goes on fantastic. I like using a flat finish with darker/brighter colors. It is less intense.
This is the paint I will NEVER EVER EVER use again. It was horrible horrible horrible!!
And there is his bed with the new Avengers bedding we surprised him with. If you look just under the edge of the blanket you can see some of the fabric that I had recovered the box spring with about 3 months ago. Funny, the colors are the same as the ones we put on the walls! I might have to go use some scraps of that fabric and put them on something else to be all matchy matchy!
Still need the closet door on, but I love it!
Bookshelf was made by Grandpa for Christmas 2009, and I built the desk thanks to plans from Ana White - Knock off Wood. She has fantastic plans for building things and it is all geared towards women and making things easy, cheap, and fabulous!
I guess they all love it! The nightstand was something I threw together after I built the desk and had some leftover wood.
This project took a VERY long time. Zane was displaced from his room for 3 days while I did this all. The whole time I kept reminding myself how much I love my son or I would have stopped. Haha! Bye-bye to the little baby boy's room and Hello to my little man's room! If you are curious, the colors I used are in the Behr Premium Plus lineup: Intense Teal: S-G-490, Opulent: S-H-300, and Green Acres: S-G-440
