We finally got our bedroom painted last week. It's the last of the painting projects we have planned for this house and I'm so glad. I didn't hate the before color, but the room is rather small and I wanted something a little lighter and brighter. And while there are still a number of things left to do in our room, we did tackle one little area of the room and I really like it. Here it is:
The colors in the second picture are a little more accurate and the area could still use a little styling, but overall I'm really pleased with it. The wall paint is a lovely warm grey we used in our last home as well. Remember how I wanted to use some crates for a room divider/shelving wall? Well that didn't happen for a number of reasons, but I decided to steal that idea and put it to use on a smaller scale. These are wine crates from some of the more upscale wine shops in the area (they charged $5 a crate). I just painted the inside a different color and B mounted them on the wall. I put them a little higher up so you could have a computer or something on the desk without the crates getting in the way. I also painted the desk top white to complete the look and I really like the effect. I will be recovering the seat cushion but I don't know with what yet. Slowly but surely this house is getting put together.
