Bedroom Fix-Me-Up

For some reason my bedroom always seems to be the place that everything gets dumped when I can't think of where else to store it. For some reason I tend to hang on to junk. Yesterday morning it finally got to me and I went through and tidied and plucked things out of my closet that I have no business wearing unless we're doing a 90's revival. Last year we bough a decorative rod and some green panels to cover our open closet. I have a few other things to tie in the green such as my comforter set and some accessories. I got the idea while I was cleaning that I should give my end tables a pick-me-up and today I went and picked up the paint to get the job done. I chose 'Fresh Lime' in CIL Melamine and I'll give them their update in a couple of weeks. I think it will really make the room look great. Our walls are in a nice blue and surprisingly the bright green looks so good with it. I also plan to help with my clutter by buying some shadow boxes and painting them to match.

My next painting project is the kitchen. I want a yellow kitchen, not sunflower bright but not so pale you have to tell people there is yellow in the paint(which is what my MIL) thinks I should do. I am thinking I'll probably go up one shade from what she suggests.

So I obviously have spring fever and it's not time to get into the yard for gardening, what do you start to plan once spring arrives?

  1. I love yellow in my kitchen - it is a nice backdrop for the other decorative elements that I love such as red toile dishes, black wrought iron etc. I think its a great colour to use with a lot of decorating schemes. Here is a colour I just found in our sample box which you might like - it is a creamy butter yellow: General Paint Colour 7230 Translucence.

  3. For me its so easy to clean the rest of the apartment by throwing it all in the bedroom and then it gets totally out of hand! We have a whole 4 rooms and 2 closets, its so hard finding storage for anything!!! Your plans sound wonderful!

  4. It sounds lovely. As I read about the green for the tables, I thought of the blue on your green wallpaper on you blog (but darker). I am planning to put a curtain on our closet as well. We have sliding doors with those wood slats and the slats are falling out one by one. Before we moved here, I was going to do my kitchen in a yellow. I was going for a lightish-medium yellow with ever so slight green tint to it. I love the look of new paint, but for most of my house it is too full to paint the walls. I am feeling a little like Madame Blueberry.
