Reveal Week 8

The Paint

This week we prepped the walls, sanded and then painted them in Benjamin Moore Simply White. I LOVE this color. It’s clean and fresh, with a little tiny warmth to it, but not so warm it looks yellow. Its also not too cool; I didn’t want it to feel too sterile, and with all of the other prints and colors I’m doing in here, I think that’s important.

What do you think of the color? I think it’s going to look so great with the mural/wallpaper copycat idea I’m sketching up! I’m also excited to get the millwork complete and painted, as well as the built-in bookshelves that will go above the dressers. Everything has to be made, mounted to our concrete walls, sanded, filled, and painted. Hopefully, all of that will only take about a week.

The Dressers

I’m so excited the dressers are also done. They were painted the same color as the walls, and I actually used the original hardware If you don’t remember this is what they looked like before. Yuck!

The only thing left to do after the beautiful paint job was to do the hardware. The hardware looked pretty gross before I had taken it off. I didn’t think I would be using them so I didn’t care if they had gotten covered in paint. Little did I know how cute they were!

When I took the hardware off, they felt really heavy to me, so I let it sit in some stripper, washed them up, and sure enough, they were brass! Lucky me! So I polished the brash and then reinstalled them. After all of that hard work I love how they came out!

This looks so much better already!

  1. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
    Nevertheless think of if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and clips,
    this site could undeniably be one of the best in its
    niche. Amazing blog!

  2. My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net
    from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because
    of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less.
    I’ve been using Movable-type on several websites for about a year and am
    nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any help would be really appreciated!

  3. Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to be
    aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they just do not know about.

    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out
    the whole thing without having side-effects
    , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.
    Thanks

  4. Hi I am so delighted I found your webpage, I really found you by accident,
    while I was searching on Askjeeve for something
    else, Anyhow I am here now and would just like to say thanks a lot for a marvelous post and
    a all round exciting blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to go through it all at the

    a lot more, Please do keep up the superb job.
