#2 ~ Paint

I went ahead and got paint on the walls! I used Benjamin Moore Aura paint in Casco Bay. This. is. good. stuff. I only had to paint one coat...and it covered completely. Casco Bay is a deep, inky teal and I fully expected to do two coats, if not three...but, no...one coat is perfection.

Next up is a bunch of sewing. Roman shades for the windows and box pleat drapes to conceal the closet. I've been gathering accessories for the room, a few thrifted mirrors, a completely free and lovely headboard from our local transfer station (aka the dump) and a couple of splurges. Even though I told myself I was going to spend as little as possible on this room redo and re-use and repurpose items I already had, I did buy a mosquito net canopy and a beautiful light fixture to replace the ceiling fan. Sometimes you just have to. When the room is complete I'll break down the whole budget and what I spent. 

Until next time,
