Check out this giclee (that's a fancy word for wall art) that we invested in last year. We bought it in Colorado (a place both Mike and I LOVE) and we both liked it upon first sight. That pretty much fits all of our criteria for artwork. My thought was that pale blue walls would really make the orange...POP!
Only now, you can see that our pretty picture actually lives here. Blah. Those brown walls with the brown bed frame are really killing me softly, one neutral tone at a time. You'll see, by the two blobs of paint, that I had every intention of transforming the room. And really those big blobs are two different colors, but it seems I was debating over a drop's worth of blue tint because I CAN'T TELL ONE IOTA OF DIFFERENCE!
And then I saw something shiny and lost interest.
And let's even talk about this nook, if that is indeed the term you can use to describe half of a room. I know, it was considerate of me to clean up before my photo shoot...however, this is how the place looks 100% of the time. The piles you see are the dry cleaning, and all of the random stuff which has no home. I suppose that chair is the squatting place for vagabond crap.
Let's not even talk about that weird duck or the lamp that is obviously void of it's cover. There are enough issues here to prove the point that our bedroom sucks. And it's really, really brown.
So. Today's productive nap time was used to clean out the top drawer of this dresser. At this pace, I will have this room done by 2020, no problem. However, I will note that I MOTIVATED today, and took a painful run on the treadmill in my free time. So, I did get something done, it just wasn't my brown bedroom.
But this is my project/current obsession. And there are plenty of opportunities to get creative, because look at the place. It is brown.
Have I mentioned that?
I did actually buy the blue paint months ago. Wow, it may even be over a year ago at this point. And the white bedding is new as well. So it's just the walls and the accessories and the accents. Let's get 'er done.
And some sort of timeline...shall we say, 2 weeks?
