The room is still in progress, but WOW what a difference primer and a few touches here and there make! My beloved Dinosaur Gray paint color from our last home is no longer being sold and I can’t find a swatch of it anywhere. So, alas, time to search for a new color. Thus the four swatches:
Most of our friends seem to be leaning to the far right, (in color swatch only). I think I’m good with that. Now to just find the time to paint… We’re so much happier with what little we’ve done with it already though. Man, priming over that awful mustard color made a world of difference. Then, adding the slate colored bedding with the newly painted headboard practically made us giddy. But what really put us over the top, was finding this beautiful mid-century modern dresser on Craigslist! It gave that half of the room the “someone lives here and cares” feel we’d been missing.
See, doesn’t the dresser just top it off? Now, if I can just sort out how to blend Country French, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, and Mid-Century Modern all in one house without looking crazy, I’ll be all set.
Oh, by the way, we’ve entered Zeus’ fabulous photo in a contest on Facebook. Voting goes through May 13, 2012. Feel free to vote for the guy to encourage his dreams of modeling.
