Oh BOY! A bedroom makeover, of sorts.

Recent times have been occupied by our bouncing, rolling, kicking and punching baby BOY, and his bedroom is no exception. Granted, he probably won't be in it until he is about five or six months old, but I have a feeling time will be too fleeting to start getting it ready then.

I should probably disclaim this before we go any further, and advise that this is not a sponsored article; just all my opinion. I'm receiving no reimbursements from the maker of the product about which I am about to gush.

Our little Gummy Bear has taken over the Firecracker's bedroom, and the Firecracker is now back to sharing her room with the Snowflake, as they did in our old home. Surprisingly, they don't mind a bit! (They actually asked for it!) I'll take what I can get, though, if it makes life simpler. As an added bonus, our bedrooms are large enough to fit two twin-sized beds, two dressers and a book shelf, and the beds are not bunk beds.

Now, here's the bonus:
Firecracker's room used to be pink. And by pink, I mean BRIGHT pink on two walls and a more-subtle (but still obvious, not Pepto pink) shade on the other two. Most paints would require oodles of primer if not at least two or three coats of colored paint on top of that to cover bright or loud colors with a lighter color, but not our Behr Premium Plus Ultra!

However, to paint this room over to the start of the Gummy Bear's theme, this is only one coat of bright blue, on top of dark pink. No extra priming step needed as the primer is mixed right into the paint, making painting a breeze. One coat and some touch-ups later, the Gummy Bear's room is nearly complete!

Now, to add the furniture back in and get some decorations in there... We may do monkeys and trees here; it would be very fitting for this little tornado boy.

One coat, y'all. I think the Firecracker is just as excited as I am!
