What did you use for paint?

i used 1 qt of behr 550B Blue Ocean latex paint, and mixed my own values using a qt of plain white latex (both gloss). i haven't gotten around to posting my stencils as pdf downloads on my blog yet, but if anyone wants them, just PM me and i'll get off my lazy bum and get them to you Smiley

myrdda, it's much easier than it looks to whip up your own stencils. you just need an exacto knife and some posterboard, and can make whatever your son is into! there are more detailed step-by-step instructions for doing this project on my blog (srsly, it's like a 50-foot-long post -- too much to post here!). again, check it out, and feel free to message me if you have any questions!

thanks, y'all! wasn't super difficult, and the stencils could be traced instead of freehand if you're not confident in your drawing skills. just be prepared for it to take longer than you think -- took me 5 days cos of all the coats of paint! i still need to add a coat of wax to make it extra shiny.

dinodrawers! hilarious.

daisy loves the nursery -- she was just focused intently on the light on my camera. obsessed with laser pointers!

i'm working on my son's nursery, and wanted to have pieces with lots of color. we're not painting the walls (rental house), so i came up with this piece to bring in loads of bright color. we're decorating with dinos and airplanes, so this fit right in.

it's an unfinished pine dresser (new), replacement drawer pulls (glass) and lots and lots of blue paint with handmade stencils (posterboard i had lying around the house).
