In September we'll have been in our house for two years. Two years and we've painted two rooms. Hm. Well, this one room a year thing was not cutting it for me so I stepped it up and did one myself.
The downstairs guest bathroom. You know the one that's big enough to fit a toilet, a sink, and well...that's it?
Okay, so it was the smallest room in the entire house. But it still took me a solid weekend to finish since I picked a dark color and the second coat was a must.
I knew I wanted purple but Matt and I went back and forth about the shade for a while. In fact, we had two swatches painted on the wall for months. And then I went ahead and picked something different without painting a swatch. Ha!
Since I was so rash with my decision, Matt said it was "my" project and didn't help. But I'm proud of my little room and I adore the color. I've even finished decorating! One room done. Oh, 15 or so more to go. We're a work in progress people.
I had black and white canvases made of Indianapolis (where we are from), Chicago (my favorite city in the world), and Cleveland (where we live now).
I already had this 'R' I won in a giveaway a million moons ago and now I finally had a place to put it! I purchased a white frame at a craft store and I was set!
And if you're not interested in seeing pictures of my bathroom, how about this face?
