It’s been a process… Liam’s Room is for all intensive purposes complete and we are ready to share it with the world!
We like to think it’s a space for Paul and I to be able to share time together with our little man, so it’s definitely a room we can enjoy as “adults” with touches of baby here and there! It was also super important to us that it would be a room he can grow into! We were going for a more modern car/sign feel! And I definitely feel like there is room for more personal touches like pictures of our little man and maybe even more fun car stuff!
So we start with the process with… PAINTING! The room was previously a milk chocolate color and we decided to go with some neutral yet cool colors!
We purchased the paint at Sherwin Williams, and it turned out awesome! I love the Light French Gray and White Stripes!! We also updated the ceiling fan to a more modern clean feel of stainless steel! Perks of the new fan!? Multiple speeds on a remote and a DIMMER too! YAY!!!
So now for the big reveal!!!
