Painting, painting, painting!

Here's a little peeked at what I was doing today.....

My sister found this great changing table for $30, but the color was all wrong.  It just needed a little face lift to match the rest of the room, so I gave it a light sanding and pulled out the Behr paint, in Ultra White.  We went to Home Depot looking for a low VOC paint, and found out that Behr is now making all of their paints low VOC!  I thought that was great!  I had never used a low VOC paint, as I wasn't sure if it would change the way the paint adhered or the durability.  But, because she is almost nine months pregnant, and the little one really may be here any day, I really wanted to keep things healthy for her and the baby, so trying the low VOC was a must.  Well, I LOVED the stuff, it hardly had any smell, which was very refreshing for a paint, and it went on beautifully!  
I don't think I will use anything BUT low VOC paint anymore!

It still needs one more coat of paint, silly me I forgot to get a primer!  Oh....I wonder if they make primers that are low VOC?   
Hmmm....I will have to look into that....
I don't have time to finish painting until this weekend, so I will share after pictures then!


  1. I've never used it myself, but I read about a lot of people that use Kilz Green Primer. I think it is either low or zero VOC. Can't wait to see the finished product!

  2. Cant wait to see - am sure it looks fab!

  4. I've switched to only low or no VOC paint and it all works great. You are a great Aunt!

  5. I've never used it myself but I guess I will have to try it. You are such a good sister. Keep us posted on when she has the baby.
