We did it!! Along with the help of a workhorse of a friend we managed to get all 4 bedrooms painted before the movers arrived last weekend. Here's a peek at what's brewing in the rooms. Some will need much work to get to the finish line but I'm excited about where we're going. ps all paint colours referred to are Benjamin Moore.
The walls have been painted White Dove. I thought I was going to do a gold treatment as a feature wall but things have changed because I can't find a metallic paint that I love. The image above is not a wall paint but it's excactly what I'm craving. So instead Blue Danube will be the feature wall along with some highlights in a metallic gold. Has anyone used a gold paint or glaze they loved and can recommend?
When I asked Reed what colour he wanted his room he said purple. While I realize that teen boys like their rooms to be cavelike I thought it might be a bit more uplifting to do White Dove on the walls. I am waiting for the walls to cure before I go crazy with the feature wall that will include the remaining 3 colours. If I start too soon the painters tape could peel off the white. Phew, that should give me another week or two before tackling this monumental project.
After the immeasurable number of hours spent slaving in Livy's last bedroom there isn't too much I need to do here. The walls are painted and this fabric is going to be used to make a headboard for her bed.
Okay honey, I painted the walls. You're done! Years ago I bought a very large teak desk from a client and loved it. We moved to a new house and it didn't ever find a proper home and I came very close to selling it. Now it's in this office and I can't tell you how gorgeous the teak looks against this soft blue. Ahhh!
I promise to share some photos in the future but we're not quite there yet.
