The spare bedroom was in need of some color after I took the wallpaper down. I think I looked in every store in town at least twice before I finally found the shade of purple/lavender/grey comforter that I wanted. Then it was time to pick out the paint. I decided on Olympic Timeless Lilac.
It's always such a shock (but exciting) when the first strokes of a darker paint go on, but I loved it right away.
I knew the white furniture and curtains would really lighten up the room.
It was the blue carpet that was the problem. So while I still had some ambition, I ripped it out the same day I painted. It was held down by double stick tape. In the other bedroom that I took carpet out of, the tape was so dried out it wasn't even stuck to the floor.
I wasn't so lucky with this room. Only about half of it came off, and the rest is very, very sticky. I haven't come up with a way to get it off yet, but I'm sure it will be time-consuming whatever it is. Ugh!
I really wish the bed would fit with the head on the wall without the window, but there's no other place for the long dresser because of the floor vent.
I still need to find an area rug and accessorize, but that's a project for another day.
