Catch up here! Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5, Ready for Paint
When we last left off, we were ready to paint and thought we could knock out painting in one weekend. Let's laugh at that, ok? :) Thankfully, we had pre-primed boards, but it still took two coats of cutting in and rolling (three coats of rolling in about half the room) to get good coverage. It took 6 hours for each coat because of how much edging there was to do. Jeremy did the first coat on the weekend, then I did the rest during nap times. We tag teamed the pink paint in our typical fashion--I edge, Jeremy rolls, then I touch up. I really love getting to work together on projects with Jeremy! We finished painting last weekend, but there was a lot of clean up and finishing touches left to do.
Just to refresh your memory...here is the room on Day 1 after we ripped the baseboards off and got it all ready for primer .
We LOVE how it turned out! Things in the nursery are going so quickly now! We already put up the crib, added the rug and rocker, and are in the middle of assembling her dresser! Now I get to plan the fun decorating stuff!
We still have a few finishing touches to do in the room that will make the board and batten even prettier! We're going to replace all of the outlets with white outlets (the actual outlets are off white right now) and replace all of the gold knobs and hinges with brushed silver hardware.
And, in case anyone is wondering, the pink is called Panache Pink by Sherwin Williams. We've been getting the Harmony No-Voc paint from Sherwin Williams ever since we were pregnant with Little Boy and LOVE it. It has such good coverage and hardly any smell!
Thanks for following along with our board and batten project! It may have taken us a month, but we love the results!
