Hi ladies

DH and I are in the process of moving our "office" down to the basement so we can make it a nursery.. Next week we should be able to clear it out and paint it.. I am usually the painter in the family.. i love painting! Dh thinks its tedious and boring... I am wondering if its okay for me to paint the nursery? It wouldn't be oil-based or anything just water..

Who painted the nursery at your place?

You're ok to paint if you use acrylic latex. Just the oils and enamels are unsafe. I paint murals and I painted throughout my whole pregnancy. I did a lot of research on this before I was even pregnant also because I paint for a lot of pregnant women so I wanted to know. Just make sure you use some ventilation. Of course, if you hate painting, you could always lie to DH and say it's unsafe so he'll do it! :P

My sister and her husband painted Brinlee's room for us when I was about 7 months pregnant. DH and I went out of town and they came over to paint, it was a surprise! We just re-painted Brinlee's room on Monday for her toddler room... DH and I did the painting this time.

I painted our kitchen when I was 7-8 months. Not the easiest thing to do because of standing in high places and weird angles but I did it.
She's right though, make sure to have ventilation and only latex paint. You should be fine!

My mom painted my dd's room. I thought pregnancy was a great excuse to not have to paint!! :P

Thanks Ladies! I was pretty sure it would be okay if i used laytex paint. I love painting and I can't wait to get started.
