Bedroom Is "Done"

Happy Tuesday everyone! Well the title of my post is Bedroom Is Done! I use the term "Done" lightly! I am sure that the bedroom will not stay JUST like this! I will always be tweaking and re-tweaking! But the painting is done and it feels so fresh and so clean! I ended up choosing a Ralph Lauren paint color called Rio Grande and I LOVE it! Thanks to my friend Sue who recommended it! :) I am a very happy camper!

I am STILL using my hubby's camera because mine is broken. So the pictures I took don't show the "true" colors of the paint and the furniture. I have to say that everything is just a bit darker than the pictures make it look. Except for the bench at the foot of the bed...it shows up way dark in these pictures. I don't like bright pictures...I like pictures to show the warm "glow" of a candle or light. So use your imaginations! Thanks! :)

The window treatments I left the same for now. I did paint the brackets black and those are new black finials on the ends~

Still not sure about this....it is a work in progress. Not loving it~

This is the shelf I got at Goodwill for $3.00. I painted it black, sanded and stained it! Design on a Dime...I am really getting into this! :)

This little stool is another makeover from my antique, thrifting outing a couple weekends ago. Are we seeing a pattern here?...I am painting everything black!! Haha! The little box that the nest and the bird is sitting on...yep Goodwill .59 cents! :)

Well...I HAVE got to get the bathroom painting done! So I am off to do more painting and more decorating! I will be so glad when it is ALL done! Hope you all have a wonderful day. Until next time. Take care. ~Sarah~

  10. Sarah,
    Your bedroom turned out so good. I love the color paint you went with. I know what you mean with the black paint, I keep finding myself wanting to paint everything black and distress it.LOL.

    Love your bedroom Sarah, you certainly do have talent in decorating:)

  14. I love the color, even if it's not the true color (I have the same trouble with my tan walls!) I spent a lot of time painting each room some funky color years ago and now everything is pretty much off of the same paint swatch in tans. LOVE it. I think everything looks great with tan :)

    Have a great day!
