#makeovermonday / baby room makeover, kinda & my favorite paint colors

Last week on #makeovermonday I talked about how I was considering COMPLETELY changing out the baby room….

Here is what it looks like now:

And this is the style I was considering a change to:

From an overwhelming response, I have concluded that I do in fact love our baby room and I’m not sure that I want to change it ALL right now.

I’m thinking about trying a few tweaks to the current room as a start and see how it goes!!

Here’s a REALLY bad photoshop markup (before and after) of what I’m planning to change:

#1 – Paint the furniture white (from black).

#2 – Paint the dark brown stripes on the walls a light grey.

#3 – Change out the dark brown curtains to white curtains.

I think these three things will TOTALLY change the room to feel more light and airy, which is what I really crave. It feels too dark in there now. But, I do love the colors and I really want to avoid having to recover that rocking chair and get new bedding.

That’s the plan and I have only about 8-10 weeks to get it completed! I’ll try to tackle a piece per week and feature here on the blog as we go as a mini-nursery makeover series 🙂

As an added bonus for today’s blog, I’d thought I’d share a few of my current favorite paint colors in my home. People ask me all the time what colors I would use and I am constantly giving out these as my go to colors:

bejamin moore shenandoah taupe the daily Starr paint colors makeover monday

Benjamin Moore Shenandoah Taupe – This is the color you will find all throughout my home. I saw this very bathroom advertisement in a magazine before we moved into our current home and we bought 5 gallon buckets and covered the walls before we even moved in! I LOVE it! This is the color I will use to paint over the dark brown in the baby’s room.

sherwin williams comfort gray the daily Starr makeover monday

Sherwin Williams Comfort Gray – This is the color that I have in my kitchen. It looks pretty green here, but sometimes looks more blue depending on the light. I love it! I covered the previous red walls we had. (BTW – I don’t have any photos of my kitchen yet, I should work on that!!).

sherwin williams oyster bay

Sherwin Williams Oyster Bay – Yes, this color looks identical to the one above, but they are a shade or so apart. This one is what I used in our front office/dining room. Here it is below.


Are you nervous about painting and changing your look completely?

Don’t be! It is such an easy way to make your home feel like a new place 🙂

    1. It’s not a tool – that came from the Sherwin Williams website. Home Depot and Sherwin Williams both have great apps though to see colors in rooms and even try out changing your wall colors via a upload inside the app. Hope that helps!
