Put the “Labour” in Labour Day

Happy Labour day weekend, folks! I hope you’ve been enjoying your long weekend and it’s been full of the perfect amount of sunshine and relaxation. We’ve had more of a productive couple of days rather than relaxing at a cottage, BBQ-ing or chilling by a pool. A weekend that was full of prepping and painting nursery walls, and actually breaking out the Fall décor! We put the “labour” in labour day. 😉

We finally chose the colour scheme for baby K’s nursery on Friday, and picked out the chair rail. We are also going to be painting his dresser & turning it into a change table. Next is a visit to Fabricland to decide on fabrics to reupholster a rocker/glider chair and matching ottoman.

These colours are more neutral, and were easier for me to decide on. I knew I wanted something kind of sophisticated and masculine…brown/tan that would work to represent ‘sand’ in his nautical themed room. The other colours, however, were a little trickier for me. Kind of scary because the colours aren’t so quiet – they’re actually pretty bold and bright! “Big Sea” was the shade chosen from the “Deep & Luxurious” CIL paint collection to makeover the dresser. Pretty perfect, if I do say so myself:

From CIL’s “Deep & Luxurious” Collection we settled on a sort-of navy that we would use to paint some of the accessories and décor in the room:

Well off to continue painting as the first coat is likely dry! Hope your weekend is wonderful! 🙂
