More Home Design

Nooo! I don’t want to paint anymore! But, we got these shelves from Ikea. The ones on the far back wall. And not in white, but in brown/black. The online catalog is different from the printed catalog and the store, so these were hard to find. And we picked out this bed frame with these side tables.

But before we can even hang the shelves we have to re-paint our room. I was never wild about the room color. The Ex picked it, and the room is small, and I think this color makes it seem smaller. And, I don’t think it will “go” with the bed frame. I want a green color in the room I think, something sage-y. I like the American Traditions color Green Goddess, but the name reminds me of the salad dressing. I’m not sure I want salad dressing on my walls. So I’ll have to find a similar color. But, the trim and the crown moulding colors aren’t going to change. They’re a cream color that will go, so that’ll be a time-saver.

We have the shelves. They’re leaning against a chair in our front room. I don’t want to paint this weekend, but I think I’m going to have to. Leaning boxes isn’t much of a design style.

Anyone got a spare brush? Who likes to tape? I’m offering beer here people…


  1. Change is good. New husband – you need a new color. And shelves. Yes, change it all!

    Our bedroom is this light purple “lilac” kind of thing. It was a 3-year-old girl’s room before it was ours, I think my husband would like me to paint it something more “adult”, but I just haven’t gotten sick of it enough yet.

    I’d sure like to come to your painting party, though. Sounds much better tnan a visit from my crazy mother-in-law which is what’s on tap for my weekend!

  3. For a beer, I might be convinced. Except I’m not taping. I hate that job.

  5. How can you sleep in a red room? Green will be so much better. Love the new furniture!

  6. How about seafoam? That’s a pretty green – very calming. Nice furniture, should look great. And you definitely don’t want me to help with the painting. I’d be willing to make the finger sandwiches though.

  7. i’m actually getting ready to paint our bedroom, just trying to get the kids off to school. right now, it’s a dusty rose/pink colour, but i’m switching to a blue to medium blue colour. i don’t have enough closet space so i’m getting a wardrobe from ikea, it’s the one with the mirrored doors. i love that store. if i lived close enough, i wouldn’t hesitate to come over and paint, with or without that beer offer, i love painting, but i don’t tape, i’ve got a sure and steady hand.

  8. You’re asking for volunteers? You’ll have to pay for travel expenses.
