This bedroom was home to unused furniture and the cat carrier and the rockband drums. These were the pictures I took last year so in the last 10 months, it also became home to Christmas wrapping paper, stocking stuffers and empty boxes. We moved all the crap out of the room and prepared for the painting.After much debate while standing in the paint aisle at Lowe's, we picked a color. We were kind of scared. This wasn't a color that could be described as muted or light. It is not a color that blends in with the wall.
Pine Forest from Valspar.
"We aren't going to drip, right?" says my husband (who painted the window and closet on accident.) We opened the window and shut the door (so kitty wouldn't run in) and after my husband vetoed listening to Britney Spears, we dipped the rollers in the paint tray and got to work. A couple hours later (including a trip to Lowe's to buy more paint) we were done.
We love it. I love it. I'm crazy about it. I can't wait to decorate it and make it a space where our guests can crash (but only for 1-2 nights). I was afraid it would be too dark but it isn't. It is lovely.
We know that we want to do a few accent colors, white being one of them. Light colors only as we do not want to overwhelm the dark colors of the wall. Any suggestions? My husband has a good eye for design but I suck at it.
