Over the weekend I stumbled upon a vintage marquee style “E” monogram on etsy and fell in love. It arrived today. How do you think it looks with the new white walls?
Thanks so much for your input the other day. In the end I decided to paint everything, including the espresso trim, white. Spent most of the day yesterday painting. It got ugly before it got better. You know that point in your project where you think uh oh, maybe I should have left this alone? Those wood surfaces were stubborn. I ended up applying three coats of primer. Who knows, maybe two coats would have done the trick but the OCD side of me didn’t want to chance it.
Already, the room feels so different. It’s so much brighter and feels more spacious.
New baseboards went in today (with help from my Dad!) but I didn’t get around to painting them. That’s on my to do list for next week, along with DIYing a white desktop. Now that all the walls are white that dark wood desktop is sticking out like a sore thumb. I’m not entirely confident that I’ll be able to pull it off but what the heck, I’m going to give it a go anyways!
Today I’m meeting Peppermint (of One Little Bird) and Christine (Fabulous Adventures of Listgirl) for lunch. Cannot wait to finally meet both of them in person. I will probably be flooding my Instagram feed with gratuitous photos from this outing. Consider this your fair warning.
It’s almost Friday. Hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week!
