A little over a month ago, I teased you with my freshly painted, super bright white room. Why on Earth would I of all people choose to paint a room white? The little tease was fun for me for a few days as the emails and comments rolled in. It didn’t take much before I was bitting my tongue and squirming in my chair, as I couldn’t yet reveal to you the real reason for my big white room.
It seems the general consensus was that I am pregnant.

Wait, what? Um, that’s a nursery design, Lindsay.
I know, I know. I’m definitely not pregnant…but I know that some of you are! So, when Glidden asked me to partner with them for their My Dream Nursery sweepstakes, I couldn’t have been more delighted. From now until June 7th, you can enter to win a $2,500 Walmart gift card from my friends at Glidden. But, let’s get to more of that in a minute. Obviously, we need to talk about me and my white room first.
A few months ago, I worked with Glidden on putting together a sample “mood board” for a brightly colored, gender neutral nursery using their paints and products available at Walmart.com. It was so much fun to dream about a nursery again. My friends Nicole Balch and Melissa Michaels also put together mood boards, girl themed and boy themed respectively, and you can see them all over at the My Colortopia blog. I used the jungle animal vinyl wall art as my inspiration, and I had such fun putting together a contemporary and unexpected nursery. I think it would be great for either a boy or a girl, and it feels grown up enough that mom and dad would feel special rocking their new bundle of joy in this sweet new room.
Additionally, Glidden thought it would be invaluable to provide parents-to-be with some genuine, not scary, you-can-do-this-too advice, and they asked to feature me in a couple of videos on the subject. They flew in an amazingly talented video production crew, and for two whirlwind days, I talked and painted and talked and painted and talked about a few tips and my own inspirations. Needless to say, it was in the top 5 experiences of my entire life, and I am forever grateful for Glidden’s confidence in me. It has been pure torture to not share this with you until today.
Welcome your little one to a world of color with Baby Room Colors from Glidden® Paint, as seen in What to Expect When You’re Expecting (only in theaters).
Okay, back to the sweepstakes. Like I said, Glidden is giving away a $2,500 Walmart gift card to one lucky winner. To enter, simply visit the sweepstakes page on Circle of Moms and choose your favorite nursery mood board – mine, Nicole’s or Melissa’s. You can see a little slideshow type thing of the boards on the Circle of Moms page, or you can visit the My Colortopia site to see larger photos and more information about the products used and the contest in general. Leave a comment on the CIRCLE OF MOMS page (not on my blog!) naming your favorite mood board to be entered to win. You do have to register/log-in to Circle of Moms to leave a comment, but if that’s not worth $2,500 to you, I don’t know what is.
Y’all are more that welcome to leave comments here if you want to chat about my mood board or the video. You know I love getting feedback from you guys!
So tell me – which of you are expecting?
