I find every October when it starts to get brisk and the air is crisp and earthy I need to start a project. This year I decided to concentrate on the 2nd bedroom. We are anticipating a visitor from overseas so I want it to be welcoming.
I live in an original 1929 modular ranch bungalow and the rooms are not very big so you have to be minimal with furnishing etc.; which I have a difficult time with. We inherited my husband's family maple 4 poster bed without the canopy (too bad) and mahogany dressers that were repainted sometime with gold distress look. These are really nice pieces and worth working on. Teh room we painted in Home Depot paint Linen which has a yellow cream cast and we have cream carpeting.
I had a friend a friend of ours paint the bed headboard and footboard with Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee. OMG! what a difference! Now when we put the bed together and dressed it up the room looks like a little bed and breakfast bedroom. We now want to sleep in this room that's how good it looks!
I have come across some interesting handy hints as I am doing this project and thought to share with you.
How many times have I miseried over what to paint first in a room.
As I continue with this autumn/winter project I will post whatever else I learn. Right now I will start working on the dresser. I want to change the look of the dresser.
Til later will let you know the progress.
