cherries and paint i'm praying isn't too gray -- as in the color. not my son.

i just painted the first coat of blue, yes blue, paint in grayson's room. i was totally balking blue because it's the obvious choice for a boy, and i hate to be obvious. but after going between a millions greens and a light brown latte color, kylah has talked me into blue. there are several extremely boring variables involved here, but either kylah's pitch was really, really good or i'm really, really tired of vacillating 'cause it's blue. the goal was for a darker (but not dark) blue than the light blue dot in his circle bedding. it's definitely darker. while it's drying, i'm hoping the slate gray look is disappearing. it isn't exactly what i was picturing. we'll see. no matter what, i'm going to get all his furniture in there before i change it again. i'm not up to repainting the whole thing unless it's truly hideous, as is the case in my master bathroom. that's my next project.

in other gray's-room news, we bought a bookshelf. yea! delana and i found it at pier 1 yesterday on clearance. i'll wait for pictures, but it was an unlikely choice at first. after much debate, however, and a lengthy explanation to kylah, it was confirmed that the shelf will be way cool. i really cannot wait to have the whole thing put together and ready for my new baby boy.

oh, and i'm eating cherries. they have 'em at wal-mart, and they're way good. get some. these and an ipod make painting downright pleasant.

update: landon just came in from church. he went to look at the room and was totally impressed. "oh, i really like that. i really, really like this color. this color is making me happy." not happier than it's making me. my typically unaffected-by-decor husband showing some enthusiasm means i did good. :)

Blue is a nice color though. I bet his room will turn out as cute as Ellies!

I think that is sounds fantastic. If you and Kylah decided on it I am certain that it will be WONDERFUL!!!!!!!
