A Few Bedroom Projects




A few weeks ago, I roped my husband into peeling off the old wall-paper in our room and painting it a purply-bluish color. We spent an entire Sunday peeling the paper with the help of my mom and dad, and kiddoes. Although it was quite a task, it really turned out to be fun. Kleigh and Gary painted the room over the course of the next weekend. Then came the fun part: making curtains, a fabric covered headboard, fabric covered memo board, mouse pad, and pillowcases. I still want to cover my computer and sewing chair, make a covering for my window sill/seat and possibly make a couple pillows; but that will come...

you know, you and I must have alot in common. I looked at the color of your room and started to laugh. I just told my husband Sunday that I really was not in love with the look of my bedroom and wanted to paint it....the SAME color you have on your walls. Can you tell me the name of that color? Please?!
By the way your room ROCKS!!!
