One Room Challenge Week 4: Pretty Little Things
Whew! It has been a crazy week with all the kids home for fall break. We had lots of fun going to the apple orchard and getting our family pictures taken but I did not make much progress on Emma's room.
After a fun filled long weekend I did finally get a chance to start painting Emma's mid century hutch.
I am using chalk paint by Renaissance in "snow". The paint is quite thick so I have been doing a bit of sanding between coats (to remove the brush lines). It also has been super useful using an angled brush with a stubby little handle. It makes it easier to fit into the tight corners.
I wanted the hutch to be a bright white but I am feeling like the "snow" color is a bit stark. It needs to be just a tad bit warmer. I have some leftover Annie Sloan chalk paint in "old white" that is a nice creamy color. I am thinking of mixing a bit of it with the Renaissance to see if that warms it up a bit. I'll keep you posted :)
I'm still waiting for my pretty patterns to arrive. I will be covering the back of the hutch with wrapping paper that I designed myself and ordered from Spoonflower.
I am itching to get all the painting done so that I can start styling the shelves. I found the most beautiful books this week.
I can't wait to see them all lined up on the hutch once it is finished!
I also wanted to show you this adorable little succulent. I found her at Ikea when I was picking up Emma's bed a few weeks back. I feel like every room should have a little something that's alive.
Well, that's all I've got for you today! I am going to put the last coats of paint on the hutch and hopefully the patterns will come in the next couple of days!!
