Friday afternoon, I started painting the bedroom walls. Here's how it started out - white walls, green headboard:
|heh, you can see my spots where I was trying out paint colors. :o)|
It's always a bit scary to put color on a white wall...it looks so dark!
But I know to stick with it and trust the color is going to look right.
I also worked on the door we use as a headboard. I wanted to paint it white and add tin ceiling tiles to the panels.

I also had Bruce add a ledge on the top just to make it look more "headboard-y".
Love, love, love the color of the room. Revere Pewter is definitely a good color! Now my white curtains show up instead of blending in.
|Tried out the bench under the window...not bad|
But Bruce told me he'd build me one. I just need to come up with a design and draw out a plan for him! He's the best!
In the meantime, I'm ordering my rug from Ballard Design. I found out it's on sale right now! Perfect! As for the bookshelves, that is a project for way down the road. For now, having the room painted and a barn door in the works is enough. I hope to share that in a couple of weeks!
Hope your week is going well!
