Remember me mentioning that I was working on a project and you would have to wait for the reveal?
Well, I am giving you a sneak peek, because I am hopeless at keeping a secret from you when it comes to anything interiors ;0)
I am working on our Master bedroom.
This wardrobe was a freebie given to me by my dear friend Joelee when she moved to another state recently =0(
The robe was in great shape, but in serious need of an update if it was to work in our home and the 'new' space.
It had been in Joelee's shed for a while and needed a good wash down before adding my fave prep/primer Zinner's B.I.N. This time I used the Bullseye 1.2.3, same product, but water based (more on that later).
This is to become my robe.
Here is the old one we had in our spare room which will be Mic's (below)
This will be getting some wooded embellishments before having the same paint treatment.
It's in a bad way.
So, even in this terribly cold and wet weather we are getting here right now, I pushed on with the painting and hoped it would dry...it did!
Here you can see the robe with the first coat of colour on.
It is my new favourite grey. The perfect Grey I think,
Taubmans 'Storm Cloud'
Very appropriate with the weather. It is the softest shade and such a lovely colour.
It looks not at it's best against the wood work in our room at the moment
...that is the next thing to change!
I know you can't really make out the shade right here, but it is just beautiful.
The other old robe started getting it's first coat too =0)
I managed to spot this lovely for $35.00!
Which will be going on our bed.
You can see the old colour on the walls which is getting all painted out
So, our room looks like a painters studio with all of the drawers on their ends drying their first paint coats off. I can't wait to get it all finished.
Here is some linen I bought to make some items for the room. A lovely linen Toile and some raw linen.
I still have somethings to pick up to get the room completed, but the weather is not playing very nicely with my plans. I hope to show you the full reveal very soon.
Like I said at the beginning of the post, I had to give you a sneak peak ;0)
