The color scheme all started with this little dresser.
It was M’s when he was a little boy. His mother bought it and painted it white, with blue and orange knobs. After I had E, it was brought out from the basement and painted 2 shades of yellow with pink, and green accents. We were all living in one bedroom at N’s house right after E was born, and these were the colors that I wanted to paint a baby’s room if we had one.
Since then, we have moved over 8 times, and although E has, for the most part, had her own room during that time, for some reason or another I had never painted it the way I had envisioned when she was a baby.
Well, now this dresser has been handed down to R, and I still haven’t finished the flower pattern on the top. The girls share their room and I finally painted it two shades of yellow, with pink, and green accents.
It is very yellow. Bright yellow. Brighter yellow than I expected.
But I think I like it.
I got all of the curtains in this room (4 panels) on eBay for $11.00– they are even lined! The beds were from Overstock.com for about $119.00 each (I couldn’t use these beds after all because the side rails were broken, and I couldn’t find a replacement that fit). The Pottery Barn duvet covers were .99 cents and $14.50, and the bedskirts were $8.50, and $11.00– all on eBay.
