When we bought our house a few years ago, we did a lot of work. We put in new floors and painted absolutely EVERYTHING. I was so over painting when we were through that I never thought I would ever want to paint again. Well 2 years later and I can’t stand the ugly yellow color that we painted our bedroom.
So we (and by we I mean I) decided that it was time to paint. I am not very good at making decisions either.
See what I mean?
Finally, after 12 paint samples, a few custom color matches, 3 trips to Home Depot, and a trip to Lowes, we had colors chosen.
These 2 photos have really been my inspiration for our own room transformation. That top one mostly for the leopard print ottoman, and the bottom for mainly the paint. But I love everything about both of them, honestly. Eventually this is what I want our room to look like, but for now, I am happy with the paint change. We actually ended up color matching the lighter color of paint in that bottom photo for our walls.
This is our poorly created panoramic photo of our new color scheme. Its funny that when by themselves, neither paint color looks blue (they are both grey), but together the look really blue.
I love our new colors. It is so much cooler (temp. wise) and our room even feels bigger! What I don’t like: painting, especially when I have to do a lot of the work myself because it was my idea and Cody had to work. Thankfully he was able to help as much as he could. I love that man. Especially when he finished taping the room for me. I hate taping. Honestly, I hate everything about painting besides the finished product. I don’t want to paint anything for a long time.
Now our dilemma is trying to figure out how to decorate, especially because of that stupid window and the fact that our bed doesn’t go in the center of the room. (We have a dumbly laid out room.) Apparently it is a good thing I switched my major from interior design to speech pathology, because I am terrible at this whole decorating thing.
No, but really though. HELP. What should we do?!?!?!?
PS. those side tables are just stand ins until we find better ones.
