So, out went the shelves. Out went all the junk. And in went a breath of fresh air :) I didn't realize this room was this big. It became a perfect slate on which to start over.
I initially was going to paint this room SW 7006 Extra White using the color I found in the Sherwin-Williams Chip It!® tool.
Using the Color Visualizer paint tool, I had adjusted the SW 6956 Blue Refrain just a bit, and toned it down a bit to SW 6469 Dewy. I decided to go with the Harmony® paint line since it is zero VOC. It also helps reduce odors that are already in your house. Like our pup peeing in the corner of this room...a lot. It's ridiculous. Also, I knew the new headboard was going to stink quite a bit because of the stain, so this was definitely a plus for me. And since this is zero VOC, it is great for children and pregnant women. I really wish I had known about this stuff when I was painting the babe's nursery.
Not only that, but I only had to use two coats of paint on this. No primer. The coverage is amazing. And not to mention that the color is amazing also.
I have to admit, I was seriously soooo nervous about painting these walls. I really actually love the beige, and how the molding pops off of it. It's a really pretty combo. I just had to keep telling myself that I CAN paint walls. It won't hurt me, lol. And plus, the whole rest of this house is beige with that same molding, so it's not like I was losing something. So, up went the paint. Up went the headboard. In came new accessories. And then I realized, that I really do like color on my walls :) This Dewy blue is just so perfect. It's like a sea breeze blue, really light and almost minty. It's just beautiful.
So, let's see the before again.
Yes, it is still the same room. I am so happy that I moved the office out of here. So, happy. Now...all I have to do is reorganize my new office in the basement. That should be fun, lol.
