I do *now*!

Since we bought our house back in June, our bedroom remodel kept getting pushed back for other rooms to be done.  We had enough this weekend, so we finally did it.

I still have to make curtains, recover the headboard, and do something with the closet doors, but I'm absolutely thrilled with the outcome. 

New carpet

We started out with "old man drab", terribly stained beige carpet, "institution green" walls, and gross brownish-yellowy doors.  The colors aren't true in this before pic.  The Hub took out the baseboard heater, and I cut out and replaced drywall.  We took out the window a/c unit also.

This room has gone from hated to most favorite in the house now.  Cheesy

I really like the chocolate brown with the blue carpeting.  That's one of my favorite color combinations.  Great makeover!

Looking for postcards from anywhere to use for RSVP cards for my 8/2012 wedding.  Have 80/200.

Oooh I am getting ready to pain my living room chocolate brown!  Do you find it actually makes the room feel bigger? I saw that on a designer show once that the brown makes it feel bigger and the rest of my family thinks I am nuts for painting my small living room a dark color and think it will turn to a dungeon.  Roll Eyes

It does make it feel bigger.  I was afraid of the cave effect, too, but it's just the opposite.  I painted a 3" strip around the edge of the ceiling to give it a tray effect, so that helps with the larger feel as well.
