So for the last month I have been in the mood to start up some pretty serious projects. Redoing my bedroom being a top priority! Though it was previously painted blue just because that was my favorite color, I was never really inspired on the decor to go with it. It has taken me a few years to finally become inspired! First step was repainting. I do love color but I prefer to start with neutral walls and add the color in the decor. So my house is pretty much all beige and gray now. It is SO much easier just to change up the decor than to have to repaint all your walls. Just wished I had figured this out 4 years ago when we bought this house!
After painting I found some fabric that I loved and sewed some curtains for the main window in our bedroom . I than took on the project of redoing my dresser. Sanded it, spray painted it than got new hardware.
The mirror I got from Ross. It originally had a black frame so I sprayed painted it white. Wanted the contrast.
My husband actually had a strong opinion about the hardware when we were at Lowe's! Usually anytime I ask him for his option on anything having to do with decor he tells me whatever I choose will look fine but when I force him to choose I will usually always choose the opposite. Not on purpose but he always wonders why I ask him in the first place! I just get crazy indecisive sometimes and his choice for whatever reason makes my decisions easier. This time I just had to say "Yup you are right" and buy the hardware he liked. LOVE how it looks on this dresser.
The top of the dresser was in serious need of a makeover. My accent color in the room will be yellow. I recovered some old books in scrapbook paper than found this Owl at Ross that I was thinking of repainting but I am really starting to like the color as is. Gonna need to find a pillow or something to tie that color into the rest of the room.
This spray paint from Krylon is AWESOME! First off I have never spray painted a big piece of furniture with canned spray paint before but thought I would give it a try. Krylon has come out with this new paint with primer in it. It coated the dresser really well. Out of the 5 cans I had I only needed to use 3! Totally gonna be using this again for future projects. Krylon also has this paint in a variety of colors that you can check out on the website at http://dualpaint.com
Great piece of furniture to start with but much happier with it now. Alright onto the next room project. Working on my night stands and convincing my husband to build me a head board for our bed. Hmm might be a while before that gets done!
