Re-painting Again

June 28, 2011


After moving my daughter into her current bedroom during the Great Switch, we painted the room the same lavender-gray, African Violet by Benjamin Moore, she had in her previous space. Her previous room was north facing with not a lot of natural light so the colour was quite muted. In her current room, we find the lavender really comes out with all the light that filters in. The walls especially read "purple" since we hung up the Roman blind. She really likes the vintagey look we are going for with her turquoise end table and diamond tufted headboard. The fabric we chose isnt working with the current wall colour so we will be re-painting again.

So while the kids are off visiting their grandparents farm, I will be painting up a storm!

  4. The fabrics are so pretty especially the black and white ikat one. And the striped walls are so much fun. Looking forward to see the finished room.

  6. Ugh - I've done the painting-and-then-repainting thing more times than I care to remember! But sometimes you just don't know until the colour is up on the walls.

    I'm sure the room will look spectacular when you're done - you've already got some great fabrics and pieces in the room, and the striped wall is really going to give it the wow factor :-)

    Happy painting {again}! :-)

  12. I think it will be gorgeous - huge solo undertaking though! Good luck with the repainting (it's a tough pill to swallow, but usually ends up so right :) ).

  15. I love how this room is coming together. We really do have the same taste. I have the b&w ikat fabric for pillows in my living room. Love those blinds!!!
