I swear I just blinked and the week was gone!!! The days are slipping by so quickly as I engross myself in housely stuff.

But enough excuses for being a negligent blogger.

I give you the latest painted transformation - my bedroom. The befores are dusty rose. (If you look at the top of the picture, by the ceiling, you get a more accurate colour.)

Not that I dislike pink. It was just a very dark, gloomy, 1980's kinda pink that needed to be put to rest, like so much from the 80's.

I like this inbetween stage so I thought I'd share that, too.
Because it's wood panelling on the walls (under about seventeen layers of paint), I needed to paint the lines with a brush because the roller doesn't always catch them. The effect is a quirky geometric that I quite liked (be still my little geeky math heart). Fortunately, reasonableness (read boringness) prevailed and I realized it would probably feel more like a prison cell than a bedroom after a few hours and I decided to keep painting.

The result is a beautiful celery green bedroom that is lovely and bright to wake up to in the morning.

It still photographs yellow but whatever. It's green. I like it. I get to sleep in it.

I hope you've all had a productive week.

Happy Friday, Painters, M

Great job. It does look much better in yellow, er, green. Whatever, it looked darker before.

Love the volted celing, love that you painted the celing a different colour, love the colour!
