Oliver's Room

I repainted Oliver's room back in June, when I also painted my room. I haven't posted pictures because I've been dragging my feet finishing his room. I completed another phase a couple of days ago, so I'm just going to post pictures now, even though it's far from complete. But really, I have no idea when it will be complete. Finding the time and money to do what I really want is going to take a while.

Here are the before pictures:

A very bright (ok, WAY too bright) yellow
With a cute girl-y flower and butterfly wallpaper border.

The after pictures:
Just a little bit more boyish for my little man

I know these pictures aren't great, but I am having a really hard time taking good looking pictures of things that aren't people.

I still need to:
-paint the rocking chair
-get a new curtain (there isn't a picture, but it's RED right now)
-the lighthouse bedding set (crib bumpers, diaper holder, crib skirt) stuff will go very soon.
-I will probably also paint the Pooh Bear dresser, or get him a new dresser within about a year. I can't decide. It's SO cute, so I hate to paint it, but it's just not quite my style. Maybe I'll just get him a new dresser, and save the cute Pooh Bear for a baby girls room (someday, far in the future) I do like the yellow and blue colors together, though.
-he also needs a toy chest or bench

Anyway, even though it isn't perfect, it is a vast improvement. I LOVE how the color turned out and it's now my favorite room in the house.
