ORC - Week Four - Short and Sweet Update

I'll make this snappy...
If I were a gambler, I'd put 70/30 odds on Skylar's nursery being finished by week 6.
Yesterday, paint went up on three walls.  Major, MAH-jor improvement.   The back wall will be papered next week.
Full Disclosure:  I had them painted.  I fully intended to do the painting myself, but we had painters here working on another project, and when they agreed to paint the nursery for $150, it was too good to pass up.  They had it done in less than two hours, too.  Would've taken me two days.
Ask and ye shall receive.
 You can see the new, BM Mint Julep compared against the old, murky mauve and feel the life being breathed into this room.  When the Perroquet wallpaper goes up on the back wall, I think this tiny room is gonna positively SING.

Since that's all the progress there is to report, I'll do a quick little prop to Sherwin-Williams, and their Harmony paint line.
Since this is a baby nursery, I wanted low or no VOC paint.  The Harmony line is no-VOC, and actually has formaldehyde-reducing properties.  The sales guy at SW told me it would actually make the room smell good after painting.
It's true - there was a pleasant, fresh (not perfume-y) smell coming from her room as the paint dried.
I approve.
Up next:  Wallpaper, light fixture, window covering, and a redo of the changing table (I hope)
Until then..
