Bedroom Transformation


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:  

Before:


After:  



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.

  2. Great color story, and the painted top on the desk is especially genius. Your house is awesome.
