I must feel really inspired right now due to the spring weather because I have been wanting to paint! I've been waiting for it to get a little 'warmer' before painting the baby room so I could have the windows open for good ventilation. Well, yesterday and today were the days! Yesterday, I painted only one wall this cream color called "Conversation" (True Value). This morning I waited until the sunlight was shining through the window in the room before starting with the orange paint called "Clown Fish". After the first coat of paint, I was a little hesitant about the color. It's more yellow/gold than I wanted, but after a second coat it looks much better and the color seems to be growing on me. It's a very vibrant color. After painting one wall with it, I knew that it definitely needs to stay only on one wall. The other three walls are going to be the cream color. I have one more wall to paint before I'm finished!

I also painted a shelf the orange color today. This will be hanging on the wall in the same room.

That color looks almost just like the color we picked for our office. We didn't finish it b/c I wasn't certain I liked it. It was a more goldish orange than I was expecting. Can't wait to see what the baby room looks like! Hopefully pictures soon??? I agree with Winter, pics of you too! :)
