The circus has left town

This room is primed for a makeover!  I used a bit of gray primer along with the white, not on purpose, but because I had a 'primer shortage' and had to add in some of the primer we used in our dining room.  It looks better already, no?



I also put a nice fresh coat of white paint on all the baseboards that already looked fine because I'm a crazy perfectionist.  Now I have a nice clean slate to do more paint experiments.  Isn't it funny how the same primer looks so different from different angles?  Funny, or annoying.  One of those two.   More annoying, I think.  Yeah.

We primed our bedroom and the color I was painting over was so dark it looked like I had sponge painted. It drove me crazy for the entire 24 hours it was visible.

Looks great already.

I would wonder how the fabric looks with just the primer. Is that lazy? Yeah; it's lazy.

Um, so where do I start? I love that lamp, I love where the room is going and I adore that fabric you picked out! When can I move in?
