A Fan Of Benjamin Moore Paints

One of my clients phoned me in February (just before I fell ill from the flu) to inform me that she and her husband are having baby number two and they needed to have baby nursery number two ready for the baby's arrival in six weeks. How exciting! I'm pleased to say that little Audrey arrived four days before her due date and I finished her room about an hour before she and mom arrived home from the hospital. I think she was ready to see her new nursery.

The room was based on the parent's choice of fabrics for the crib bedding, chair and curtains.

Can you believe the room started out like this?

Thanks to the new Benjamin Moore Aura paint I was able to cover this room in just two coats. That's right two coats of paint over that aubergine without priming! This paint costs a little more than the paint you'll find at other paint stores, but I assure you it is quality paint and will save you time and materials. If you live in Portland visit my friends Roy, Mark or Russ over at Kaleidoscope Paint - great guys and quite knowledgeable.

Here's the first nursery I did for this client - it is just across the hall from her little sister's room.

I'll be sure to repost pictures of the new nursery once all the furniture, curtains and accessories are in the room.

Busy Life and Catching The Bug

Greetings readers. I just wanted to say a quick hello and let you know that I'm still here. I was quite busy at the end of January and February finishing work for three clients - driving from one location to another getting it all done. Then it hit me, like a ton of bricks! That horrible 'ick' that's making its way around.

I'll be back soon with photos of the projects.

I hope all of you are great and staying healthy. See you soon!
