The magic of paint

One of my very first giveaways on Restored Style was paint. The folks from Olympic graciously offered me two cans of their NO-VOC paint to put up for grabs, and I’d like to think the perfect gal (and family!) won the giveaway. Amber Carter took home the paint, she she just so happened to be pregnant and in nursery planning mode.  It was meant to be!

Amber emailed me awhile back with pictures of the finished nursery – it’s so fun to see how a few cans of paint can totally transform a room! So without further ado, here’s a sweet little note from Amber and a few before and after pictures she shared with me…

A boy! We had just found out that we were going to have a boy. Two years prior, we
were blessed with a girl and now we would have one of each. How exciting!

I immediately started brainstorming how to decorate little Micah’s bedroom (yes,
we already had his name picked out – we chose it way back when we were dating
about 10 years ago!). I knew that I wanted it to have the same feel of his sister’s
room, but still be personalized just for him.

As I was just beginning to look through paint swatches, I noticed the paint give-a-
way on Restored Style. Hmm… why not give it try? The only contest I had ever won,
in my entire life, was from some radio station when I won a half-gallon of ice cream;
I don’t think I actually picked up that prize… Needless to say, I was thrilled when
I found out that I won free paint for Micah’s room! Not only was it free, but it was
Olympic paint’s Zero VOC formula, which meant that there were no harmful fumes
for me to breathe in – perfect for an expecting mommy!

I decided to follow the same theme as Jada’s room with the bold, dark brown
horizontal line all around the room (I actually used paint from the same can!).
Instead of the girly colors (pink & sage green), I chose a more masculine palette
for Micah’s room (blue & tan). I’m very happy with the way it turned out. Simply
perfect.

Thank you, Restored Style & Olympic paint for helping me decorate my baby boy’s
room – a wonderful product for a wonderful little guy.

Thanks so much for sharing your adorable room, Amber! It’s super duper cute, and I’m sure Micah thinks so too:). Cheers to the weekend, friends!
