What a difference a little paint can make.

Sunday was a painting day for us. We finally got to tackle Kennedy’s scary dark blue room after trying to get at it for the last 5 months or so. I forgot to take really true “before” pictures, so you’ll be spared the horror of the red curtains, but you can get an idea of what it was like from these photos.

We really just piled all the junk in the middle of the room and got to work. Here’s Chris.

Here I am taping. Like my bracelet?

The color we went with was Martha Stewart “Almond Butter”. I just love it. It’s pinky, peachy, but still works as a neutral in the room.

Can you believe that’s the same room? Who knew this was the brightest room in the house? Not I!

But those bare walls are really dying for something to be done with them. And that bedside table really really needs to get painted. All in time.

We still need to put up a lot of trim all around the room, curtains, curtain rods, art work, etc. But already, I feel so much more comfortable in here.

Thank goodness Kennedy likes it too! Although, so was a little concerned that we messed up her dollhouse when we were moving things around.

Even late in the afternoon, this room is just flooded with light. I can’t wait to get started on all the fun stuff!

    Love this idea! just did a lamp shade in twine, except used spray adhesive instead of the glue gun but if did a garbage can be glue gunning for sure. Love the little G, such a nice touch and it reminds me a little bit of Pottery Barn. Way to craft on the cheap.
