Our updated bedroom!

Here are a few pics. Not many unfortunately. I totally should have taken before pics but to be honest it looked so blah and hodge podge that I didn't want to remember it in photo. I know what it looked like in my head and although this isn't glorius it still looks 1000 times better.

The color is "baby boy blue". The story behind the color if I haven't shared it already (I might have, my memory is awful). We were at Wal-mart several weeks ago and I said "let's look at some paint color and see what we think and if we are on the same page". So J and I went to look at them and he is glancing around and he sees a color he likes and he pulls it out and low and behold the color is titled "baby boy". Well, as you know we have two little girls and we figure it is the coaches curse and we are destined for only girls. We still might have one more baby in the next 2-3 years. So J says "this is it, this is the color, it is destiny, our next baby if conceived in this room will be a BOY!". HA HA HA! I was laughing of course and told him to dream on but if he felt that way and just loved the color we would get a quart and try it out for a sample. So we did that and we liked it. I couldn't just go with one color to choose from so I went to another store that sales these smaller samples and I got 4 others. He painted them on and that was a waste of money b/c he insisted on the baby boy blue. Soo......baby boy blue it is. I am pleased with it though. If you stick with me for another 2-3 years you can find out if J's baby boy blue room theory worked or not. HA
Yes, we have lived in our house for 5 years and just never taken the time or the money to do
this. We finally decided that it needed to be done. I wish we would have done it 5 years ago.
You can see the white wall here and how blah it looks compared to the blue.

J working up a sweat working so hard trying to get this done so we can move our bed out of the living room. I didn't do much if any of the painting. Someone has to enertain the girls so that was my job.

Finished product:

Just a side note since we are talking about more babies above. With our hopeful 3rd baby in the future we are not "trying" for a boy. We want at 3rd baby regardless of sex and I obviously assume it will be a girl considering our past history and I am completely satisfied with a 3rd girl. Although, a boy would be a slight bonus. I mean you always want what you don't have, right?
