One of the best parts about becoming a homeowner is actually getting to paint our walls instead of dealing with boring old white everywhere. After seven years of renting, we were itching to get some color up on the walls.
The first room we decided to tackle was Ella's playroom. Technically it's supposed to be the formal dining room. Seeing as we don't have a formal dining table and have no plans of getting one soon, we thought it was more practical at this point to have a space on the main floor of the house where Ella can play without getting into (too much) trouble. Eventually we plan on switching it over to a dining room, so we wanted to pick a color that didn't scream little kid and that would look nice enough that we don't necessarily have to re-paint when that time comes.
Without further ado, I present our first sort-of big project as homeowners.

There is still a little work to be done before it's totally the way I want it, including figuring out some way to organize her gazillion stuffed animals. I also want to hang some artwork and such on the upper walls (of course, that would entail finishing unpacking the boxes of paintings upstairs). Our next project is building a little table and chairs to go in her playroom. Even though she's still a bit young for them now, I foresee lots of tea parties in the future with my girly girl.
