Project 18: A finished room and lessons learnedMay 6, 2011
We did it! If you ignore the unpainted spot above the window this room is officially done (the walls, anyway). I love the way it turned out. The room feels so much cozier now and less like a giant white box I sleep in. The dark green paint really helps to make the room darker at night, too, which isn’t something I had expected. Overall I consider this project a success!
– Painting is a lot more work than people admit. Home bloggers are always talking about how a gallon of paint is a cheap and easy way to transform a room. I don’t know what other ways they’re comparing it to, but painting is a pain and paint is not that cheap.
– I’m so thankful for helpful friends! I’d probably still be taping off the door jambs if I didn’t get help this week.
– I am so not a perfectionist. I knew that before, but working on projects like this just reaffirms it (especially when trying to work with my perfectionist husband).
I’ll be tackling two more problem areas in my bedroom in the next two weeks, both of which are visible in the above photo. Got any guesses?
It’s bedroom month on 50 First Crafts! See you next week!
