Where does the week go!?
I'm doing my best to stay on track with this room, which means each day I try and tackle a little something.
Currently the state of our room is a bit sad...
Just screams "Pin Me!" doesn't it! Oh, goodness, clearly I need to rethink keeping that fan. Its terribly boring, but oh so useful during hot Idaho summers!
Since I demoed all baseboards last week, I spent most of this week painting the window and door trim during nap times. Its amazing what a new coat of white can do - just look at how much brighter white is next to the old color on the door.
I personally find it much easier to paint trim first and then go back and cut int he walls. I like that I can be as messy as I want doing it that way. I have yet to decide what color to paint the door...this particular one opens to the back porch, but there are 2 others in the room as well. Can't decide between white and not white.
As for the baseboards, we bought new pre-primed MDF to match the rest of the house. I gave all the new trim a quick coat of paint....in my dining room no less. If I can get the walls painted before the weekend, then maybe trim can go up soon!
I also gave a pair of vintage nightstands a little makeover - if you follow me on Instagram, you might remember when I snagged these at a yard sale for just $10 last summer.
I really wanted to strip and restain them, but the veneer was so thin in places that I knew it wasn't going to happen, so that left paint as my only option (for you MCM purists, I'm sorry!). I didn't know if the legs should stay a wood tone, but in the end I decided to stick with my inspiration and go all white. I am also super happy I was able to keep the hardware as is - nice and tarnished!
They turned out super cool, but I think they might be too small of scale next to the headboard. I do love that they don't block the window, but I wish they were wider. I guess I will see when I hang the wall sconces.
I had these guys laying in the garage, so I thought I would try and turn them into wall sconces next to the bed.
Paint of course...
So far I have given them a couple coats of black, but its way glossier than I thought it would be, so I have to figure out a way to tone that down a bit. I do love the look of enamel style barn lights, but not really what I was going for in this space.
Here's what the one from my inspiration board looks like,...
Any suggestions? Leave me a link or send me a Pin if you can!
