More Decorating Progress

When I got back from the OASIS conference on Sunday, I had a lovely surprise from Mr Messy :-) He had painted the first coat real colour in New Child's bedroom :-) Although it doesn't look as muted and calm as I thought it would lol. Its like stepping into a marshmallow!!! I'm planning to do a swirly stencilled border, and have now decided to paint the short walls facing the camera with the same minty green. Hopefully that will break up the marshmallowness enough!!! I had been planning to put up Roman Blinds with dress curtains over the top, but I've changed my mind on that too. I'm going to keep it simple and just have the Roman Blinds in the fabric in the picture below (the one hanging at the back with small sprigs of pink flowers), which will again break up and (fingers crossed!) tone down the pink!!!

Its not that bright! It will look lovely with the green blinds etc.

Now everyone knows from the room colour what gender you child is!:)

Hi Suzanne,
Hopefully it won't be too marshmallowy once I've done the toning down lol.
I thought about putting the picture up in black and white, but thought that was going a bit too far lol. All my friend's and family know who we are adopting and Ethiopia aren't that strict (they allow gender and rough age, but no photos). Besides I want New Child to see the progress updates when she's bigger.
