Before and After

Before
The look: Velveeta-cheese-dip-threw-up-all-over-my-bedroom-yellow. Imagine trying to go to sleep and your walls are radiating this color. Now think about waking up in the morning and the first thing you see is this color searing into your retina. Needless to say it had to be changed.
After
The look: Parisian-feel-nice-and-cozy-salon-red. (Oui, my inspiration came from Amélie in case you were wondering) Darker yes, but, the kind of warmth I can get behind. The room still needs some decorating, but, the hard part is over. Now this is a bedroom and I can look at all times of the day and not be horrified!


Please note that these pics were taken with really bad lighting as Oklahoma has decided it doesn't like sunshine right now.

Great to hear from you and thanks for posting on my blog!

You still have paint in your hair?

The red is much better than that baby-puke yellow. How about an Eiffel Tower theme?
