We have painted and fixed up every room in our house except our bedroom.
It is time for a change.
We have been thinking about paint colours and new curtains since we moved in but other projects always took priority.
We still have a zillion other things on the go, Chris is making a huge 10 x 3 1/2 foot table, we are installing a fire place in the living room which Chris will be building the mantle for, our kitchen ceiling needs to be painted, and our basement needs some serious TLC but for the next little while our bedroom will be my main focus.
This is what it currently looks like
I love the brick wall so we won’t be changing that
The paint colour in the rest of the room will be changed to Benjamin Moore’s Collectors Item. It is the same colour we used in our living room. It is an off white that picks up on the other colours in the room and depending on the amount of sunlight it can look like a really light pink or light beige.
We will also be making a new headboard
This is our inspiration
I will also be making new throw pillows
I ordered the fabric for the headboard and pillows from Tonic Living in Toronto. I love their fabrics!
I am going to leave the roman blinds for now. Chris doesn’t like them but I think they are cute.
As you can see from the picture our light fixture is also blue. I really love it and I don’t want to buy a new one so I am going to use some fabric paint to change the colour.
I hope to get this all finished before Christmas but I doubt we will.
We should be getting started on the headboard next week which I am super excited about.
