Mr. Loonie patched, sanded and primed the walls before the new colour went up. The before colour was a mauvy purple (it looks really light in the below photo to the left - have a look at this post which shows a better representation of the purple).
I chose Refreshing White from Rona's Expressions line, it ended up having a pink tinge to it allowing the dressers and trim to have some contrast against the wall. To clean up the baseboards and trim I did a quick coat using just basic white straight from the can.
The closet also had a makeover since the doors were already out for the frosting project. The shelf was a wood veneer/ particle board combo and the plastic brackets had aged an ancient yellow. Mr. Loonie tried taking out the shelf but it was not moving out of its 30 year home; the years of paint had sealed it in tight. We ended up protecting the walls with newspaper flyers and spray painting it all a clean white.
Now to get the last bit of trim up around the door and the frosted closet doors in (the 2nd method worked - post coming soon!)
Ooooh.....the crib and rocking chair (both Kijiji finds) were delivered this weekend by Loonie family members after a Edmonton weekend trip. They are amazing!
