I get emails on occasion asking for the paint colors we used in the playroom. So I thought I would share them in a post inspired by the Nesting Place paint party.
We'll start with the wall color, I used Benjamin Moore's Aura paint in Caribbean Mist. Aura paint is my favorite, it covered really dark red walls in here with just two coats. You can read my post about the incredible Aura paint here where I share a few painting tips and some of my favorite painting music. You have to have good music playing when you paint right?
The trees and birds were painted by Mr. 65th Avenue using Olympic paint from Lowe's. The tree trunk and branches are Kodiak and Guacamole was used for any green.
For the white leaves we used leftover trim and bookcase paint. It was Home Depot's Fresh Aire line. I didn't have it tinted, it's just off the shelf white. I wouldn't buy it again because it was so watery and hard to work with but it's a no voc paint so it was worth a try. I do have to say that the paint on the bookcases has held up really well considering the everyday abuse...I mean use. ;)
