Hello again! Thanks for checking in! Before I could get going on this room, I used it as an opportunity to purge. First, I needed to clear out the playroom stuff and put it back in the playroom now that the floors are done.
Once I cleared some stuff away, I started prepping and planning for the gallery wall. That is the thing that’s got me the most stressed I think. Arranging and rearranging to create the right flow and mix of sizes and colors. Some pieces need to be framed, so there is still much to do in figuring out that wall.
I also started researching bamboo shade options. I grabbed these from Lowes. They’re the direction I want to take, but I wish the coloring was a bit warmer. It’s a tad too yellow. This picture is actually reading better than real life, so maybe it will be okay. I’m painting this door black and moldings white. That may help too. Another possible option might be to do a light stain wash over it, but I’d rather not. So I’m keeping my eyes open.
There are brass campaign style corners that I still need to clean up and pop back on. I love the impact it makes in the room already.
I was so excited about the change, I styled it up with fall accents from my friend mother nature. She always has the best stuff!
That’s about it for now. Hoping to get more painting done this week…walls and/or bookcases and maybe a garden stool.
