I’m not sure if you can tell, but the paint was still wet when I took these pictures.
At about 7 pm today (Wednesday), I finished painting my bedroom! For whatever reason, this room (unlike my closet) was extra difficult and time consuming to paint. From patching the ceiling to other issues around the room, I thought I’d never get it finished. I persevered, however, and now it’s complete. Yay!
I managed to clear everything out of the room and throw a few things on the bed to get some quick pics to share with you. Now that I’m looking at these photos, the space reminds me of a really cheap motel room — complete with a wire hanging from the ceiling. I know it doesn’t look like much at this moment, but this is when the magic and fun start to happen.
Thank you so much for all of your help with selecting a light fixture for this space. You left loads of helpful and encouraging comments after Monday’s post. Well, I pulled the trigger and ordered a light fixture. I’m not going to tell you which one I chose, but you can bet I’ll be hanging it as soon as it arrives and sharing lots of snaps here.
Over the past week I’ve also been trying oodles of curtain options. I’m pretty sure I ordered between twelve and fifteen different panels to try. (I’m going to have to set aside a full day to make returns.) Right now I have it narrowed down to two, but a few more are still on the way. Hopefully, they will all be here next week so I can get your opinion. (Speaking of curtains, click here if you are curious as to why there are a bunch of nails above the window.)
Other than that, as soon as the paint dries, I’ll be ready to start making this space come alive! And for those who missed it before, this wall color is Rock Candy by Sherwin Williams. (You can reference all of the interior paint colors I’ve used in my house here.)
Because I want to share something delicious with you today, head on over to BHG’s Delish Dish blog to check out my latest post. I took one of their recipes and jazzed it up to create these delicious Arugula, Asparagus, and Pea Bruschetta.
I kid you not, they are to die for and so easy. Perfect for a party or, if you’re single like me, a weeknight dinner. Check out the recipe here.
That’s it for this Hump Day! Enjoy the rest of your week.
