Just Teal with it!

I am moving this summer! My new house is in need of much work before I actually move, but in the mean time there are some fun projects… like painting MY NEW ROOM!

This is what it looked like BEFORE:

Notice there’s no floor. Also notice it’s quite small… 12’ x 9’

Well now I need to pick my colors:

Hmmmm…. what colors should I pick?

I shocked everyone and went with something VERY BOLD and COLORFUL!
I chose my favorite colors: Lime Green, Teal and Turquoise.
I went with Dutchboy paint because I love the convenient plastic canisters.

The First Coat went up and I was in LOVE with the color!

I was a painting Machine! I was up until 3 am last night finishing it up in time for the floor to go in today! But now it’s all painted!

What do you think? I can’t wait to move my stuff in and put some stuff up on the walls! And the crowning piece of furniture will be my new IKEA Bookshelf… once I buy it… but it’s been reduced to $99… and I’m SOOO excited!
