Decorating!



I wanted to paint at least one room in our new house green. I finally decided on a color and which room to try it in. I love how it turned out! The color is City Chartreuse (semi-gloss) by Valspar brand. For the accent wall, I taped off 10.5 inch stripes with the blue painter's tape and then painted a touch darker but in flat paint. I found the comforter @ Target for $13 and the wicker dresser at a garage sale for $25 that I painted black. I dressed up the plain black pillow on the bed by stitching a red feather boa and adding a green button in the middle. The curtain is just black taffeta material I bought for our wedding a year ago and didn't end up using it. I folded over the top about 15 inches then clipped the rings on. They aren't hemmed or anything but I kind of like the look! In the picture above at the top right hand corner you can see a stick on the wall that I painted gold. I found that last year while camping and thought it was cool how flat it was and how it branched out. It made it through our move and everything! As you can see, I accented with black, red, and leopard print. I think every house needs something that is carried throughout....that would be leopard print in mine...I have it in both bathrooms, our bedroom, the living room and the spare bedroom. Just a touch here and there....
