It is done! The longest project in my personal history is finally done!
Let me take you back to the original piece, which I got at the Goodwill for $14.98. See the progression below...
And then... this disaster.
Because my bedroom walls were very light. And it just didn't work with the white furniture.
So then I had to paint my bedroom :)
My dear friend Wendy ~ bless her heart ~ sat in the middle of my room in a comfy chair & chatted with me for hours while I painted on a Monday morning. My fat calico cat was very happy to keep her lap warm the entire time, too! It was so lovely to have company while I worked. Our 5 boys jumped on the trampoline the whole time (they were out of school that day).
So we went from this...
To this...Martha Stewart's Nutshell. However, I had it mixed in a Behr paint & primer all in one, which is my favorite. I had two gallons mixed, but only needed one as it covered my huge room & bathroom, all in one coat :) Happiness!
I'm so proud of it and it makes me happy every time I look at it :)
thanks for coming by!
