Painting a Nursery

You guys have been so patient waiting for pictures of how we painted Nugget's room. With our claim from when the house was broken into finally settled, I got a new camera this weekend. 

(While everything was covered, because we hadn't paid any of our deductible for the year, we only got a check that covered a fraction of the repair cost for the door and replacement cost of what we lost. Frustrating? Yes. But we're moving on.)

I've never been a fan of pastels, especially pink. So even though we are having a girl, I didn't want to paint her room pink. 

Back when I was still in my first trimester and I was about to start knitting Nugget's baby blanket, I had to pick a yarn. Staying away from the pastels, I chose navy blue.

And it wasn't much later that I came up with the idea for painting the nursery.

Three walls are a shade of cream (same cream we used in the living room actually). The fourth wall is, you guessed it, navy blue. I, with the help of my sister, mom and sister-in-law, also painted a checkerboard pattern on the navy blue wall with a gloss. 

I am so pleased with how it turned out. I smile every time I walk into that room. Don't take my word for it. Check it out (note, the room is still a work in progress):
