Behind the Scenes of our Fisher Price Room to Bloom Baby Nursery

Shares

Since we’re not going to find out the gender of our next little monkey until much later, I wanted to design a nursery that is gender neutral but still attractive. Using the Fisher Price Room to Bloom Tool I am able to choose a collection of Fisher Price Baby Gear and pick out the features of the room I’m looking to decorate. Features like wood flooring versus carpeting are available in different shades.

From there you can see the different designs that could be used on your wall to decorate your new nursery!

Personally, I think the stripes are interesting, yet not too intimidating for a novice painter such as myself. Playing with the different color palette in each collection is fun! Some collections offer fun colors like “Parakeet” and “Charisma”, while other collections have more gentle hues called “Patience” and “Concord Buff”. I’ve had so much fun clicking around the different colors to see how some blues look with yellows and greens and oranges. The different combinations of colors and patterns are endless and you can definitely find something that suits you.

To go with the newly painted nursery, I fell for the Coco Sorbet Fisher Price Baby Gear Collection .

In this collection there is a Fisher-Price Coco Sorbet Soothing Motions Glider, Fisher-Price Coco Sorbet Comfy Time Bouncer, and the Fisher-Price 2-in-1 Swing and Rocker. I think these products will come to great use when our baby gets here and I love that the colors are easy on the eyes, will match the nursery, and have the great Fisher Price reputation and quality.

My husband tried to help me but it was one of those times where he didn’t want to be the one to make the decision. After speaking with the staff, I decided on our paints and they helped me calculate how much we’d need to paint the room. 

After purchasing everything that was needed, we proceeded to move most of the items out of the nursery and began to paint.

We started with the first coat of white paint and honestly, it looked terrible! I messaged my friend asking for advice and she assured me it would need two coats. After a few hours of hard work and a second coat of paint, the room had the crisp “Extra White” I’d chosen.

My husband wanted to make sure we planned out the stripes just right; so he calculated how many stripes, how far apart, and how wide they needed to be. Then we brought out the painting tape! Eight foot tall straight lines can be tricky so we used pencil and a laser level to make some guidelines.

Because of the colors that were used to tint the paint I had chosen, “Colony Buff”, the paint contained VOCs which can be bad for my unborn baby. My husband gladly painted on the stripes for me and he did a wonderful job. I’m so happy with how it looks!

Stay tuned for the final reveal of our Room to Bloom nursery!
