Hi all! Milla here again. Surprise? I know I am, but I thought I should keep posting while the inspiration is there. Blogging and DIY is hard in the winter when it’s cold and you’re heat periodically stops working and you have to sleep in full winter outerwear. Yet, that’s another story for another post.
A couple days ago I posted about a vanity desk I purchased for under $100. Here is the beauty again:
Look at that sexy shape! But of course it has since received a new colorful treatment.
On Saturday we went Lowe’s to color match the blue in these pillows from my bedroom.
Blue is such an iffy color with hidden undertones that I wanted it to be a close as possible. And this blue has a hint of purple in it too, which is hard to match with a swatch.
So without further ado, here is the after in the lovely shade of Royal Imperial (I just made that up)
With the color being so dark it required multiple coats. So we primed it(drying time of 2 hours), followed by a light coat, which we allowed to dry for four hours. Then a second coat that dried until the morning. Around ten, Kah finished up with a third coat while I was at work. Love you Kah!
I really like this vignette shot with the bold fabric on the chair and the jewelry stand.
And one more close-up…
So it looks like my room is almost complete, photos to come soon…I hope.
