More Painting

Today we got started on the actual painting in Norah's room, so here I am applying the first coat: No need to worry about me breathing in toxic paint fumes. We had the windows open and the ceiling fan going, so I think there was plenty of ventilation in there; the greater concern might have been me teetering off the edge of the step stool :)
Here's Jerry, wearing his reluctant-picture-face:
And here again is our trusty supervisor, who's just laying down on the job!
We ended up doing three coats of paint in order to evenly cover up the old stuff, but we're both really pleased with how it looks on the walls. In the beginning, Jerry was worried the color we'd picked out was too white, and I was worried it looked too yellow, but it turns out that it looks just perfect for what we wanted:
So, tomorrow we have some clean up to do, some of this stuff that's in the middle of the floor needs to be organized, and Jerry is going to install the new blinds in there. So I'll probably post more pics tomorrow that represent a more finished product. And then soon, we'll order the furniture!

Right now, I need to go shower and then maybe take a little nap, and tonight we're meeting up with MCM Mama and her husband, Beer Geek, for dinner! They're in South Florida on vacation, and we arranged to meet up this evening, so I'm excited to meet another fellow blogger.

I think it looks good- not too yellow, definitely not white. I was going to ask about the fumes, but I figured you're one smart cookie and had taken percautions!

I can't wait to see how the room progresses!

PS: Love the dog!

LOVE the color - and love that you decided not to go with pink. :) When we do find a more permanent room for baby, we're going green. Have fun tonight!

Too bad you couldn't teach the slug of a Supervisor how to dip the ol' tail in paint and then wag it against the wall!

You must have been anticipating the comments about painting while you're pregnant. That's the first thing that came to my mind since my wife loves to paint, but never did when she was pregnant, which of course meant that I had to.

Nice job. And, I like the color. I wish our dogs could paint. We're trying to repaint our whole house and could really use some help.

I love the color. The color is neutral, I've known several couples who were told they were having a girl and then guess what?!? Yep, Boy!
