Our original bedding was black, then we got married and got new bedding which didn't go with anything in the room. The original paint color was "Earthy Cane" by Behr. The room just looked blah and nothing matched. Please excuse Gracie's tail...
Then we bought paint samples. I usually don't buy paint samples, but for some strange reason I decided to this time around. AND I'm SO glad I did. The first "color" I picked is on the right and it's called "Lavender Sparkle." Tim just liked to say Sparkle.... When it dried it was horrible! A very pale/white purple. Um no. So then we went back and I chose "Lilac Bloom" which is the color on the left. Much better.
I still need to put our duvet cover back on, but for now am enjoying the crisp white down comforter.
What do you think? YES I still need to decorate, hang pictures, etc....but I am liking the color a lot.
Oh and we also painted our furniture. This 3 piece set belonged to my parents from back in the day. I've had it for years and years.
Before (removed all the brassy knobs)
Please excuse the flash....it was 11:00pm when I took this....don't judge... :) Doesn't it look better??? I still have to find knobs, I'm wanting some chunky glass or white knobs. They (Hobby Lobby) have chunky white knobs with fleur di lis.....so we'll see... :)
