Painting the Nursery

We painted the nursery this weekend. We had originally planned on doing a picket fence but were having a hard time coming up with the background color. One day, we were walking through Home Depot and came upon these Disney colors. They had several different themes and one was Winnie the Pooh. Well, since we had just purchased the artwork on our most recent cruise of Winnie and Tigger, we thought that this would be a perfect background. The top part was painted a pastel/sky blue and had a glaze and white paint mixture to make clouds. The bottom half of the wall was a pastel green. There was a shelf between the two colors and a border on top of the shelf. Well, we have her border already and Matt wants to make the shelves. We'll still be able to do a garden theme in her room along with it matching the Pooh characters. We painted the blue and green, two coats each this last weekend. We still need to do the clouds and picket fence. I have some wooden pieces that I will paint to look like ladybugs. I also still need to make a pattern for the fence. I'll post pictures when it's all done.
