I'm pretty sure you won't be wowed by this makeover. That statement just really made you want to read the rest of the post, didn't it? :) I say this because it's really hard to picture what the room will look like after it completely comes together but I'll give you the best idea that I can.
I found these end tables for $7.99 each at Savers in Danvers recently. I thought they would look pretty cool in a dark stain but honestly, I didn't have the energy to sand them... all I could think about was the process of sanding our kitchen table.
I decided to paint them Silver Sage (bottom right color), the color of our bedding from Restoration Hardware. It's a lot of silver sage in a small spot but I'm pretty sure once there is a better wall color, lamp and rug it'll be okay... at least I hope so. :)
Aren't you loving the teal rug in here? It's almost once a week that I think about the line from The Wedding Planner where Jennifer Lopez says that "teal is the color of gangrene". Hmmm my rug is the color of gangrene... thankfully it came with the house and I didn't spend my hard earned money on it...
This is a view from the door into the room. See that silver sage stripe on the wall behind the mirror? There was one final stripe of wallpaper still showing from where a chest had been before and after Drew knocked my can of paint all over the basement floor this morning I ran upstairs and painted over the last bit of wallpaper... I didn't realize that Silver Sage was so drastically different than RH's Eucalyptus... I'm going to have to rectify that ASAP.
Here it is up close! What wall color do you think would go with the bedding and the Silver Sage?
I love that I'm showing you our hideously painted trim in this room. The only person I have to blame for that is me... I went a little out of control while using the roller painting the floor. Opps.
