I then got a few paint samples. I know I wanted brown to match the bedding, but was afraid of going to dark.
The first paint was too light and more coffee-like (Benjamin Moore's Driftwood) and the second I was worried it was too dark, but I went for it - bold, I know! It is called Brown Horse (BM too).
*Note - Benjamin Moore now makes a line for Canadian Tire that is paint and primer in one that I might try. They also have an environmental line that is very low VOC that I will be using from now on (discovered that too late).*
Now the reveal:
(Now it is a teenage girl's dream bedroom - oh Edward...)
We still have a bit to do - I want to add some art above the wall, I want a nice chaise or chair for the wall opposite the window, and just little decor items to complete the room. For now, I think we did a pretty good job, and I can't justify spending much more on this room, as it is only a guest bedroom. Now who wants to be our guest???
Next big project? Painting all the hallways up and downstairs - a summer project after our trip to Punta Cana, DR, in the 4 days! A week of sun and fun and celebrations of love, then I'll get back to work!
