I know that you all have been anxiously awaiting an official update on the progress of the guest bedroom. It's been a little while since I mentioned that I was planning to paint over Memorial Day weekend, and even since I gave the sneak-peak at the progress...so to make amends, I figured I would post a tour video, rather than just photos of the space.
Here you go:
Overall, the project went really well. I only ran into a few hiccups with the tape coming up on the baseboards, but other than that, things went smoothly.
The new color that went up on the walls is called Silver Polish, by Dunn Edwards. I went with a lighter grey then originally planned because I am thinking of possibly using a stencil to create a modern wall-papered look. I haven't officially decided if that is the direction I want to take the room, but that is what I'm leaning toward right now. We'll see how I'm feeling about it once I get some more artwork, fabrics, and accessories in the space.
My next project in the guest room is going to be painting the mirrors that you see hanging on the wall. The plan is to spray-paint them white so that they pop against the grey paint.
Here is a quick glance at the Inspiration Board I am working from for this room (just in case you've forgotten). You can click here if you would like the board details.
Since my last video tour I've actually only made a few changes to the space. The first change was getting rid of that nasty bedding! We hadn't really been using the space much, so we literally had some old-hand-me-down bedding that didn't even match. Thank goodness that's taken care of!
I still plan to spruce-up the bedding with more textures and pillows, but this one change made a really big impact in the overall feeling of the space...and it only cost me about $40.00.
The second change was painting the walls this beautiful grey color. For two gallons of Valspar paint at Lowes, I wound up spending around $50.00 to repaint the walls. The room is 10x12, and I actually have about 3/4 of the second gallon left-over for touch-ups and other projects.
Now that the paint is finally on the walls I'm ready to start the process of accessorizing. I'm really excited about this, because it means I can finally finish up this art project I've been holding onto:
These photographs were actually what inspired the theme for the entire room, so I can't wait to get them hanging on the wall!
Well, that's it for now. I've got some fun projects to get back to! I'll be posting about them soon!
