Good Monday morning! How was your weekend? Ours was busy with kids' sporting events, but I did manage to make a little progress in my son's tween bedroom.
I found some inexpensive buffalo check curtains at Walmart. They are rod pocket panels, but I chose to hang them from rings, because I prefer that look. Also, it gave them a bit more length. At only 84" long, the curtains don't quite reach the floor. That's not a look I'd normally recommend, but they are pretty well hidden behind the bed and the night table/suitcases, so it's not too obvious.
I chose the PB Essential Drape Rod from Pottery Barn, because I wanted the rod to return to the wall.
You may have noticed the paint swatches on the wall. I had all but one of these colors in my stash of sample paints.
I've decided to go with BM Revere Pewter.
It was the one I didn't have in my stash. Go figure.
Of course, I couldn't start painting til I remove this...
seashell wallpaper in the sink area of the bedroom. I know, I know... most 12 year old boys would kill for seashell wallpaper, but not my son. Weird.
Anyhoo, in between soccer and football games and cross country meets, I peeled paper off the walls. I have a bad case of tennis elbow, so it was slow-going as I tried to avoid using my right arm. I finally did get it all done.
Now, I just need to figure out how I'm going to paint left-handed...
