A shade of Robin Egg Blue

I love the shades of Robin Egg Blue.  It brings a sense of peace and relaxation.  I helped with some of the extras in Lori's nursery.  I loved the color she picked out for the wall.  A light gray-blue-green color.  Her baby's bedding is white with slashes of red in the pattern.  We decided to leave the walls alone, and spruce up the room with a few extras.  I really loved her color scheme.  We decided to refinish an outdated nightstand and replace the lighting in the room!  Yep, another chandelier in store for me!  This is the first time I actually refinished a piece of furniture.  With a little advice from a highschool friend and a bunch of googling....this project turn out fabulous!!  I really love the new nightstand.  It makes me want to refinish every piece of furniture in my house!  I will admit that the sanding part is NOT fun!  My back is somewhat sore.  But You Can Do It!  Just put your back (or elbow) into it!  Next time I will invest in an eletric sander.  The next blog will be a "how-to", so you folks can try it at home! 
As far as the chandelier goes, the room needed a pop of red.  So the chandelier was painted red!  I love the cute white shades with the miniature red balls (for lack of a better word) hanging from them!  Lori originally sent me a photo of curtains with larger (balls) hanging from them, so I knew she would like the shades on the chandelier!  It really came together quite nicely!  She decided not to find out the sex of the baby, and I think this color scheme was perfect for just that!  A real nice surprise Clark!  Ok- yes I'm tired!  Enjoy the pics!  And be sure to check out our other goodies at The Nest Boutique~
