Here are two quick pictures I had taken of the "before" color:
Yes...the red paint was done in an expensive special finish...but I just couldn't see it working with our style.
Sneaky girl that I am... I got a reputable painter to come paint the room while my husband was at work....
My husband just sent me the "after" pictures that he took with his Ipad this morning. (He is camping out there for a couple of weeks until we complete the sale of our house.)
Sorry about the sun...but I was just so glad when he sent these to me! Don't worry.. the furniture is temporary.Also, I am planning to put some white slip cover chairs in that empty sitting area.
Now I need some help! The previous owners left the windows completely empty. I do need to put some kind of shades up for privacy and light (obviously). As you can see, there really is no room for drapes (and we want to be able to see the backyard during the day...) Although I love shutters, they are completely out of the running since they would block the view. I thought roman shades, but I keep reading that they are not suitable if you are pulling them up and down daily.
I need your ideas. Please share. (You can see the bed we will be bringing HERE)
