I apologize in advance if you’re sick of the painting posts. Since the beginning of the year it’s been our main house priority. Especially being in New England and the wicked weather we’ve had this year we are pretty much stuck indoors.
As I mentioned in this post the color we chose for our guest room was Stonington Gray. It’s one swatch down on the same color strip as the Coventry Gray we used in the dining room.
If you are looking for a little refresher on where we last were with the guest room we were here:
I had also created the custom pillows to put on the bed with the intention of eventually altering some curtains to match.
Here is the inspiration room we are kind of “modeling” the style of the room after.
So far I think we’ve got the bedding nailed. 😉 I actually like my pillows better – I’m not a huge fan of pink. We followed the same painting technique we’ve done in the other rooms we’ve painted so far which is I cut in the ceiling with Ken following behind taping off the baseboards and side of the doors and windows. The taping generally takes less time than the cutting in so Ken then moves on to rolling the walls while I follow behind getting all the top of the baseboards and next to all the window and door frames.
In the end we’re left with this:
What do you think? I love that the gray in the walls makes the white nightstands, dresser and trim POP. It’s still a little too much white though so here’s what’s still left to do.
Get pretty bedding Create custom pillow covers Get and assemble nightstands Spray paint the old hand-me down dresser white Paint the walls
- Make a custom painting for the wall
- Hang the awesome mirror I found at Khols above the dresser (you’ll have to wait to see it – but it’s perfect for this room
- Hang curtain rods
- Create custom removable “bottoms” to much too short white Target curtains we already own
- Make second set of pillow covers and curtain bottoms – so we can switch it up whenever we want
So that’s the current progress. What do you think?
