So I wrote MONTHS (ugh, how does time fly) ago about our dishwasher debacle and how stressful just switching appliances had been. We did, eventually, get our brand new LG dishwasher in and I wanted to make sure to give … Continue reading

So, shocker of the century, I painted another room.
The last few weeks it’s been brought to my attention that I adore only a few colors in my decorating. More specifically, everything is either blue or green. This is not TOTALLY true, but its not entirely false either. So, when I happened upon a GLORIOUS color of blue, the perfect dynamic blue to paint our master bedroom, I realized that we would then have four blue rooms in our house (not counting the blue green of my office). And that is a bit silly, if I do say so myself. Which got me to thinking: if I really loved this dynamic blue color and it was really worth the sacrifice, maybe I could make some extra projects out of it!
Enter, the guest bedroom. This room wasn’t ever painted by us. We just left the cute powdery blue from the previous owners. It originally was a child’s bedroom, so it was a great soft color for a guest bedroom. Plus, as I mentioned, I coordinate pretty well with blue and green. But because we’d never painted it, I figured it would be the first room to change. And you know what, there were parts of the walls that were a bit dirty. Parts that even a magic eraser couldn’t remove from the wall. SO YOU KNOW IT NEEDED SOME LOVE.
This little project was easily knocked out in a day. I ran over to my favorite place, LOWES, and picked out some samples that I thought might work.
So a gallon of paint and a roll of blue painters tape later (plus an afternoon), we now officially have a crisp khaki guest bedroom. Which, truthfully, played nicely with the bedding, green mirror, and even the black of the frames on the wall and the desk/side table. And, well…it did allow me to insert a vintage green lamp into the mix as well (which is not in the picture, unfortunately). Might as well spice it up with accessories, right?!
And yes, you can say I’m obsessed. Because once I painted this room, I realized I could also paint our master bath (which WAS blue) and it would look fantastic. But that’s another blog for another day…
Do you have a color you’re obsessed with and how did you manage said obsession?
