After my preliminary Mom Cave Overhaul, this room has sat, relatively untouched, as I flitted off like a hummingbird with ADD from project to project (to project). Since it’s been so long since I’ve touched this space, let me refresh your memory on how it looks.
Ok, if you looked at it right now it wouldn’t look like this since I have scavenged some of the accessories for other places in my home
and it’s a total wreck right now. But, the general look and setup still hold true.
Then, there is this adjoing nook that has a great closet with lots of storage. Again, total wreck. Alas, the “Before” photo.
I painted the office area in Muslin (Sherwin Williams), but was on the fence as to do the same color in the nook area, or do something totally different. So, I started out by painting it in the same Muslin color.
And there it sat for awhile. I wanted to add some extra punch with a really fun stencil, and purchased one awhile back, but then agonized about what color I should use. Do I carry forth the splashes of pink from the office area? Add some green from the fabrics I plan on using? Pick up on the blue?
I picked up two sample paints from Sherwin Williams in a pink and green hue. Suffice to say, the pink did NOT work out. So, green it is.
And to prove that the pink was not a good choice – you can see a glimmer of it here as I painted over it. Bright. I’ll leave it at that.
But, pink paint color aside, I lovety-love, LOVE it. It’s just what this little space needed, don’t you think? It took some time (and patience), but I am thrilled with the end result This room is a work in progress, and I’m still trying to figure out how I want it to function, but this is a step in the right direction at least.
Have you stenciled anything lately?
