Paint Samples

Here's what our paint chips look like up on the wall. The top left color isn't the same as the bottom color, although in kinda looks that way in the photos.

If we use the bottom color as shown in the photos, which top color do you like better?

Paint samples...

Lowe's now carries little tiny sample sizes of paint for only $2.95 each.

This is perfect for people like me who have a hard time making a decision on color. Once I decide though, I'm full speed ahead.

We got samples of the three shades in the middle of the paint chip card. One will be for above the border and one for below, just not sure which color is going where yet. I think this coming weekend, we'll try the colors out on the wall!

New rug and paint chips...

Joe and I were in Target last weekend and weren't even shopping for the nursery, but I spotted this rug. It's 8' x 10', has all the right colors and is super plush and comfy to sit on.

I'm planning on placing the wallpaper border at chair rail height and was originally thinking of painting pink on top and violet on the bottom. A while back, my waiting momma friend, Heather, suggested using one color for the walls (lighter on top and darker on the bottom) using my 2nd color as an accent with accessories in the room.

I think with all the pink in the rug, I'm going to take Heather's advice and use violet on the walls...light on top and darker on the bottom.

What do you all think of these paint chips? The colors directly on top and on bottom of the border are what I'm considering. I think they coordinate very nicely with the rug.

Here's everything together. I'm starting to get motivated to finally start painting and putting together the room.

I'm so glad I found this rug, because it helped me start to pull everything together.
