Wow, where did January go?
I guess I’ve been more focused on celebrating a pair of birthdays and trying to get up early to workout than working on the house. So this is the perfect time to catch up on my backlog of finished, but un-blogged-about work.
Nothing fits my slow current pace of work like my long-running bedroom renovation project. This project passed a big visual milestone a little while back when I added paint to the bare walls. Ms. Bungalow and I worked with our friend Molly to pick a two-tone paint color for our youngest son’s future bedroom that coordinates with the comforter for his bed.
Yes, those leafy trees outside the window show this painting work wasn’t done anytime recently. The green tape line separating the paint colors will be covered with molding when I finish the room trim.
The trim color will be a light off-white that will look pretty similar to the primer line between the two halves of the wall. By painting the wall before installing the trim, I’m gambling that I can avoid marring the walls the rest of the way and save myself what would have been a lot of cutting in to paint around the molding. I’ll let you know how that turns out.
This intense green color wouldn’t work for every person or in every room, but for my 4-year-old, in a room with great southern light, and in the middle of a white/grey winter, I’m in love with the grass green. It’s like seasonal affective disorder therapy every time I see it.
