Seriously guys, you make me want to cry. Like good tears. I don’t deserve this tears. The praise, support and over-the-top enthusiasm you have shown me and Dad is just too much for words. I feel humbled, almost embarrassed by your compliments. (But don’t stop, seriously.) We aren’t superstars, we aren’t design geniuses… we just like renovating homes and we try to do it as best we can. Maybe in my private dreams I’m some design superstar… but last wek, you made me feel like I was the real deal. So thank you. Thank you for loving our kitchen and telling us so. I read every single comment and each one was special to me. I wish I could reach out to all of you and hug you, high five you or just clink my wine glass. Thank you. You are awesome. You make all of this hard work just a little more gratifying.
So last Wednesday was my glory day then last Thursday I fell flat on my face and completely missed week 6 of the ORC Linking event. So much for a bedroom reveal. My Bad. The good news is our carpenter, Brandon, came back! We are on target for a 12/1 finish date. The room is back in forward progress mode.
Let me show you what’s going on…
The window trim and frames got painted black.
Yes, you can spray paint vinyl window frames. It’s da best thing ever.
The crown moulding got installed and painted black.
Still need to paint the baseboard black.
My Steampunk ceiling fixture got installed.
I LURVE it.
I need to change to round bulbs though. Those candelabra bulbs make me all sorts of angry.
The closet doors are in.
We need to paint the doors and trim black.
We also need to add the moulding and mirror to the doors.
I took a break from the black inside the closets.
I had to paint them twice because the first pink was just wrong.
The winner was Sherman Williams “Tuberose.”
Last time I posted about my bedroom, I was debating between black and white trim.
George voted black and I voted white.
I let him win this one because I’m doing whatever I want with the pillows.
Also, its’ for the best that things area black.
While the trim is more subtle, it also hides the fact that nothing is level in this room!
I’ll be back next week in my own version of the neverending One Room Challenge.
Hopefully I’ll be sharing on my super sexy nightstands!
