But by waiting until I felt ready to tackle the project, it was a highly exciting project that I had both the energy and the time to do. I had been thinking about the color for months and had blue stuck in my head—a pretty, but saturated shade of light blue (think robins egg or a Tiffany's box). After trying 6 sample shades, I settled on Forget Me Not by Benjamin Moore (their Natura line, which is zero VOC). Saturday we painted and shimmied around the dropcloth-covered bed (and I picked up some new frames from Target to house a few prints that had grown in a neglected pile), and Sunday I spent most of the day doing touch ups and hanging pictures. And ironing curtains and cleaning up.
|I opted for sheers since I lowered the wattage of the ceiling fan bulbs and wanted to make the most of the sunlight.|
|The closet holds/hides my files, magazines and misc paperwork; one frame I still need to hang|
