Some of you may know how much I love our orange bedroom. Truly, I do. Or, should I say did? Last week, call it a “wild hair” or what you will, but while the hubs was out of town, I decided to paint the bedroom. I couldn’t sleep, I had just enjoyed a relaxing day, and out of nowhere, I felt strongly compelled to whip out our ol’ rollers. So for memory’s sake, here’s how you may know the bedroom:
We had almost a full gallon left of that sweet, green stripe behind the headboard, Behr’s Relaxing Green. Before I could think twice, I was pouring that paint in tray liners and rolling the orange away.
I know, what a tease. The next morning, I awoke to a half painted room, half the furniture smooshed in the hallway, and feelings of guilt. Did I make a mistake? Scott would be home that afternoon, and while we had talked about possibly giving our bedroom a new color, I still wasn’t sure how he would react. I had run out of paint the night before, and lucky for me, the super sweet hubs not only didn’t seem to mind, but he even took me to Home Depot to snag another gallon of that peaceful color. I came home from work the following Monday to find him finishing up what I started! Whew, talk about marrying the man of my dreams. K + S 4-eva:
So as we say goodbye to the orange walls I so eagerly convinced the hubs we needed 3 years ago (Behr’s Pumpkin Patch), we now find ourselves waking up to a barely-there green. It feels so serene, so calm, and to be honest, a little boring. Uh-oh.
I hadn’t realized how big of a role my pumpkin walls had played in that room. We even moved our FLOR rug into the office (where it seemed to fit right in from day 1), took down those greeny-gold blackout curtains (remember our blinds we recently installed to block out the morning light?), and we’re using our spunkier damask bedspread for the time being. But even Scott agreed we now need to spice it up a bit more. Oh, be still my heart! New curtains, a playful rug, and maybe a punchy throw or two will make it’s debut.
Stay tuned as we figure out what to do. Oh, and, am I totally crazy by the way? Are you sad to see the orange go? Or maybe my sneak peek wasn’t enough to really let you see the damage caused. Ah, well, there’s no going back. Now, don’t get me wrong. I love a change. So here’s to looking forward. Oh, boy.
