When you start a new project, it is important to think very carefully through every aspect of the project. If you remember, this picture was my inspiration for the bedroom remodel.
And I got out my trusty Sherwin Williams paint chips. Do you all have one of these? They are $9.99 and well worth every penny.
If you have problem making decisions about color, you can save yourself trips to the paint store to check other chips. It also makes it easy to match fabric to colors you like.
So we matched the first color to the skirt in the picture. I loved it but thought it might be too light.
SW Window Pane
So I bought a gallon on sale and tested it. As I suspected, too light. A side note: I love, love Sherwin Williams but two things;
1. They should sell paint samples. I knew I could use this paint so it was not a waste but it is convenient to buy samples.
2. Please Sherwin Williams make paint with primer in it. It is sad for me to either choose the Behr's paint with primer or prime my walls.
So the next color down on the color card was
The color is a little more green than it shows here.... but I took the paint chip to my local fabric store.
Fabric for curtains and dust ruffle
Fabric for my nightstand 30 inch round table.
Fabric for chair.
I have fabric for the headboard but it turned out too brown in the camera.
We are painting this weekend and will start sewing next week. Very exciting.
