Well now that Ellie’s temporary bedroom is officially complete, it’s time to start working on my brother’s guest bedroom, AKA my temporary bedroom (and Ben’s I guess).
A couple weeks ago I showed you guys some nightstands I painted for the space, but I’m now ready to start working on the rest of the room. Here’s what I have in mind…Nothing too crazy in this room since it’s small, about 10 x 11ft. I knew one of the biggest moves I wanted to make in this room would be the wall color, and I wanted to go outside my comfort zone. Then I remembered a paint sample of the OPI color palette from Ace Hardware I had from my painted striped box I made last month. The color I was thinking of was called Do You Take Lei Away, a light clay color.
I tested a little spot in the guest bedroom… kinda pinkish I first thought. But when it dried it was actually really gorgeous. So I went out and bought an entire gallon. I mean why not, it’s only paint right?
And pretty soon the entire room was filled with this amazing color that was bold yet subtle…
does that even make sense?
And the color seemed to work with the color scheme and mood board I created.
So now I need to put the finishing touches on this space. Big plans ahead! I’m actually working with Ace Hardware to get this room completed over the summer. I still have a dresser to paint, more textiles to add, some minor adjustments to my newly painted nightstands, and new lighting. Can’t wait to show you guys the progress!
