Blogging Without Borders: Step 1

Well, here we are again...back in the playroom. If you remember the first post a couple weeks ago, I explained what a horrific sight it was...and all the changes that had to be made. This was what I started with...

Over the past couple of weeks, I've spent most of my nap times painting. And, maybe it's a bit of a shocker...but I chose white. Hailstorm Grey by Valspar, to be exact. Not my usual style, I know, but I'm pretty excited about it!
When I walk inside, it looks so much more bright and open...I just feels good.

I've got a lot of decorating yet to do, that's for sure...but I know I'm headed in the right direction.
On to step 2...

Don't forget about all my buds...working just as hard as me!

(Next progress report: July 30.) Pin It Now!


  1. ooooh i love it!!!! it's so much lighter and brighter! what a difference paint makes.

  2. The light color in that room really works! I think because it has slanty ceilings it just really helps to open up the space and unify the walls and ceiling. Plus, it will be so fun to accesorize w/ lots of pops of color! I can't wait to see what you do next.


  3. Hmmm....Laura has used grey, too. I see a trend.

  4. i luv that little nook! if i had one i would make it a dressup, ahem - "costume up cuz boys don't wear dresses momma" area for my lil guy. he luvs to costume up, one of the first places i hit at any resale shop is the halloween for costumes.

  5. Wow, what a difference! Amazing how bright it is. Can't wait to see it all put back together! I would love a room like that!

  6. YAY!!! I think that color is the perfect backdrop for what is sure to be a colorful play room. Great progress, Holly!!

  7. The color is awesome! I love it, and I'm a little jealous, I haven't even cracked open my wall paint yet :)

  8. Yes, the white paint surprised me, but I love it! The space seems so bright and open. Can't wait to see the layers!

  9. I want that white pedestal table you have in the corner SO BAD!!!!!

  10. This is getting exciting!! At least someone can make a decision on paint color and stick with it!! :)

  11. I love love love the "color" it is perfect. The room seriously looks twice the size! You inspire me!! I am so proud you went for it I need to paint our master bedroom and the choice has me immobilized. Nice job Beth at secondhandmom.

    1. Thanks so much! Good luck with the painting...I know it's a lot of work and hard decision-making...but it's worth it!

  12. Love that a change in paint color can make such a huge difference, don't you? Amazing how light and bright it feels! Great progress already, Holly!
