Progress in the entry way ….

After much scraping and sanding and patching and washing (and more sanding), we finally got to paint our front entry way room this weekend!  It’s definitely a work in progress, but the Banish the Beige project continues and entering and leaving the house is a much more cheery endeavor.  Next up:  staining the trim, stripping the baseboards, making some window shades and figuring out what furniture will permanently go in this room.  But in the mean time, we are loving the color and very happy with our progress.

The Pink Room

My maternal grandmother’s house had a pink room.  It was the guest bedroom, with a pull-out couch, bookshelves and pink walls.  I liked sleeping over there.  Our house has a small guest bedroom that I knew I wanted to paint pink as soon as I saw it.  It’s not all the way finished — it still needs better window treatments,a bedskirt, a different bedside table, etc., but for now it’s a cozy little room for friends to stay over.  When they help us paint.  If they don’t help us paint, they stay in the basement.
