Picture molding is up

I promised you I'd post the art room walls this week, so without further ado let's take a spin around and see how it's looking!
Check out the Heidi Montag-sized makeover this room got!  (Only it looks better now) 
It's kind of exhausting looking at all these pictures in a row.
The paint color is Hale Navy by Benjamin Moore, and the first pic of the post is the truest representation of this fab color.  We used 17 (7') pieces of molding for this room.  I will put together a how-to on the molding application next week!  And maybe I will be able to make this a functioning space with actual furniture by next week, too...we'll see.  I still have to paint the window, second coat the doors, and we need a storm door so we can remove the lovely plastic on the outside of the door (you can see the blue painters tape hanging out there).  Never done, I tell ya! 

Have a great weekend!

That looks awesome! The dark blue and white trim look so posh. I just did a toffee color in my hall and entry way, so I'm easing into dark colors.

I really like the wall color you've chosen. I think you've inspired me to paint my office that color. :)

Whooo-whee! What a big difference. It looks so sophisticated already! Love how the white pops against the navy. Well done!
