I’ve only wanted to paint this room for a couple of years but it’s done at last. Finally. It’s only a small room, about 8 x 10, and I don’t really know why it took so long.
First I posted about picking the color, because that’s always a hard job for me. The color I chose is Aloe Vera by Olympic paints from Lowe’s. After I was finished painting, I had some painter’s remorse, but as soon as I started finishing other projects for the space, I started to really like the color. It’s a limey green, kind of lively.
Painting fabric on a chair was the next project. I do like how the chair turned out, but I’m not sure I’d ever do it again.
I posted the question, would you paint this? No, was the answer I got from the comments. So I didn’t!
Using the leftover chair paint I created this cute ombre chest.
Fabric scraps became drawer pulls and covered a lampshade.
Here’s the room now. I apologize for the poor picture quality. I’m slowly learning how to use the manual mode of my camera, but as you can see I haven’t mastered it yet.
The tree is actually 3 branches and part of a root. I lightly sprayed them white, outside, on one of those gorgeous warm days. The zebra curtains and pillow are from my daughter. The other bedding I already had. The chest belonged to my Mom and the black chandelier pillow is from a giveaway I won from Kathy at Creative Home Expressions. The iron bed is from a yardsale.
Here’s the corner with the painted chair, it was given to me by my grandmother, another pillow I won and some recycled art.
I painted and distressed the frames, painted the mats and printed out birds on the computer. A little dab of hot glue holds the twig to the wall.
The top of the chest holds a collection of ladies’ compacts and boot hooks. The walls aren’t different colors, it was the camera’s fault!
This mirror and the lamp are also from a yardsale and were sprayed white.
A collection of aqua and green glass sits on the buffet and I ordered some peacock feathers for the big vase.
There’s pretty much empty wall space in this room but I’m not in a hurry to fill it up. I tried 2 times to create some typography art and 2 times failed. Someday I’ll give it another go but til then the walls will be bare.
This room might be a bit too sweet or teenage-ish for some, but it’s a bright spot for me. I’ve always wanted a lime green room.
