Moving day has come and is long since gone. Fortunately we’re settled in to the point that the house is very comfortable for us, but there’s still a few boxes here and there that we need to unpack. Since moving in, we’ve already grabbed some paint chips at Lowe’s to pick out colors for the rooms we’ve already decided to repaint.
We even completed the first painting project over the long weekend! Obviously our pepto pink room – now to be known as the Guest Room – had to go, so it was first on our list. After 2 coats of primer, and only one coat (thankfully!) of our final color choice, we were all through painting. We decided to paint the room the same aqua blue I’ve thought of for our family room in the basement. This would give us a chance to see what it looks like on the wall and decide how we like it before painting it in a rather large room.
Here are the results…
We really like the way the blue looks and have decided to use it in the family room just outside of the guest room. This room is still not finished yet, I’d love to see the trim and doors painted white, but that will have to wait for a bit. But I’ll definitely be painting the dresser and night stand in there sometime this winter. Also, we’ll be on the look out for a table lamp to go on the night stand, some artwork for the walls, and my husband has decided we need a different comforter to help add some contrast to the room.
That’s it for now, it’s a start at least and I know we’ll have more, hopefully not too long for, now.
