My human has lived in this house since 2006 and only now did she figure out what she wanted to do with the bedroom!
It had this sponge paint pattern on the upper half that abruptly ended, along with the wallpaper border, in the middle of a wall. That’s because the bed belonging to the previous owner had a huge headboard. And instead of moving it, he just painted around it.
My human actually liked the paint and edging, as outdated as it was. But she could never figure out how to recreate the sponge pattern to fill the wall, and there wasn’t anymore border wallpaper. Finally, she found an interior designer guy on YouTube who had some wall ideas that inspired her. So she called back the painters she had used on a couple of other projects, and they got to work.
The most important part was actually the primer because there was a lot to cover up! And they also added something new. If you look closely, you can see a chair railing along the wall.
Next up was the paint. My human picked out this shade of deep plum very carefully. The upper wall was a light off white.
They also added wall molding to three sides of the bedroom. The one wall left over got something different.
Here is why my human was so particular about the plum color. It needed to go with the wallpaper that covered the wall behind the bed.
You can see everything that was done behind me. Oh, and the bathroom also got a fresh new coat of paint.
It’s like a whole new bedroom! If you don’t count all the old furniture.
