A Dressing Room Teaser

I put the first coat of paint on the dressing room this morning. The colour is beyond perfect; unbelievable for found oops paint! It’s more terra cotta than pink. I don’t really like pink all that much, so the orangey base to the shade turns it from meh to wow! The colour also exactly matches the print I have up on the wall by the vanity and the fabric of the toilet room and study curtains. The orange in it will also work for what I’m planning in the library. What a great find!

I definitely need to do a second coat, and at the rate the room’s drying I’ll probably be able to do that tonight. Then this room will be ready for a before and after post, trim and dithering on painting the oak cabinetry and solid doors notwithstanding.

  • May I be the first to say: “It looks great!”

  • Thanks!

  • I love that color! Can’t wait for the finished product.

  • Every time I look into that room, I smile. That tells me the colour’s good. 🙂

    The big reveal should be coming Tuesday. The first coat wasn’t dry enough to repaint today.
