Found photos...

One of my goals this year is to go through the thousands (probably hundreds of thousands) of pictures on my laptop and delete the unnecessary, print the fantastic, and maybe save some too...definitely save all of the greats online and on a flash drive.  I was trying to find a particular photo and realized just how many I really had and just how long this was going to take me.  Feeling a little overwhelmed,   I decided to check in with my favorite blogs and came across this post on Honey We're Home.  I took it as a sign and decided to get started.

I'd love albums similar to these, filled with photos and organized on bookshelves.
The first group of photos I found were the before and afters of my son's nursery.  The previous owners sure did put in their time creating their son's nursery, but it was just a tad too busy for me:

I wanted the walls to be a bit more neutral because I planned to add pops of color with all of the accessories. I ended up using Behr's "country club" and "popped corn" and was pleased with the results.  The walls almost look purple in these photos, but I always say the color resembles chocolate milk:

And I showed this way back when, but here is the finished product again:

Pretty soon, it will be time for a big boy room.  Ahh!!!  Photos of the nursery will definitely be printed because I don't ever want to forget his first room.  Oh my goodness!!...what great memories.

Wow! No disrespect to them, but the previous owners nursery gives me a headache! Great transformation!

I am with you on having tons and tons of photos saved on my computer. I am sure that is why it is so slow! LOL Good luck! I may join you on this project.

This is the exact same goal that I have.

And yes, it is quite overwhelming to say the least. A HUGE project.
