I wanted a color that would stand out against the newly painted Templeton Grey” wall.
I thought I had some paint left from painting the fireplace bricks in the living room which was sort of a sandy color but naturally I couldn’t find it. I also didn’t want to buy any paint so I mixed my own concoction of Mourning Dove (with which I painted the first bed) with Pond Moss (a free sampler from Valspar) and came up with what I’ll name Glade Pale Bamboo. It’s sort of a straw color with just a hint of chartreuse. I made just enough to cover the bed and not a brushstroke more. (I used a little foam roller for the flat areas. It takes a few more coats but gives a nice even coverage.)
And I sprayed the knobs on top first with Satin Nickel then a light overspray of Metallic Charcoal.
Ultimately I’d like to paint a little seascape on the headboard but for now I’m going to call it “finished”.
The old bedspread in the above photo must be for a double bed because it pools on the floor on both sides.
So both twins are painted. Cross that off your list!
What have you crossed off your list? Did it come in pairs?
