So far, this week has not been nearly as productive with this room as last week was. But, progress is progress, right?!? I did manage to finish painting the bed and got all of the joint compound and paint off of the floor. Who out there do I send straight into a panic attack with my messy painting habits? 😅 Honestly, if I didn’t have my steam mop to fix all of my mistakes, I would be more careful. I have never been one to take my time and prep the area before starting 😬. Call it lazy if you want but when I get motivated, I just jump right in and go for it.
Besides painting the bed and cleaning up a horrendous mess 👇🏽
I did manage to take down the headache of a chandelier and returned it. I am ordering a new (different) chandelier for this room. I did learn that there is some logic to picking out a light fixture with consideration to size. What you want to do is add together the length and width of your room in feet and the sum is your total diameter in inches (This room is 16 ft x 18 ft) so, 16 + 18 = 34. My chandelier’s maximum diameter for this room should be 34 inches… This chandelier pictured above was 47 inches! It just made the room look off balance and I was NOT liking it.
My plans for this weekend include cleaning the garage so that I can finally finishing building up the bed into a poster bed and build a bench to go in front of the bed. I am using the plans by Nicole @hillhousediaries has in her highlights. It is adorable and I think will really tie this look together.
