nursery before...

Forgive my absence, darlings! Things have been busy around our neck of the woods. One thing in particular: working in the nursery!

Here's the only "before" picture we took (thanks to Kell's mom who insisted!):

No hiding that belly anymore! And I'm not sure if you can tell what the paint color looks like really, but it's a lovely shade of aqua, Benjamin Moore "Ocean Spray," to be exact. Side note: don't waste your money on anything other than Benjamin Moore paint. It's the best, and that's it.

Also, if you can see, we wrote a little Bible verse on the wall right above where her bed will go before we (read: Kell) painted over it. Got you a close-up of that, too:

If you follow me on Instagram (@mary_straton), you've probably already seen these shots.

What do you think? We love it!

I hope you all had a great weekend.


  1. Can't wait to see the finished room!!
    Anna's room will also be a shade of aqua. The main paint color is Benjamin Moore Palladian Blue, and the stripe is Sherwin-Williams Watery, to be exact.
    They are sure to be BFFs
