It took weeks of paging through catalogs, scouring websites, and dozens of consults with friends (ok, that may be a little exaggeration, but it's a very good thing that we have such wonderful friends because lesser women would have thrown me out of the circle after I passed around the 5th set of paint chips) but in the end we have come up with a warm and spicy (that was the look I was going for) bedroom that's not too girly (that's the look Steve was going for) and I love it!
There's still a little more work to do... the books are still all over Ben's floor instead of on their new bookshelf, we need to repaint my night stand, and Steve desperately needs a new bureau, but the hard part is done and it's simply fabulous!
In the spirit of all good home decorating shows, here's the reveal:
Gramma and Poppop come and paint the ceiling, walls, and trim
Steve and Jamie apply the final coat under the chair rail - a crackle coat!
Here's the crackle up close
Steve assembles some new furniture (we have lots of books)
Jamie assembles and arranges decor
It's like a whole new room!
