I was loving all of the momentum we’ve been having tackling some much needed projects for the year – getting our upstairs rooms in order!
But here’s where we’re at currently:
And I’m stuck.
Stuck because (like I shared with my peeps on FB), we picked up this score of a 4 poster bed on Craigslist a couple weeks ago…and I have not been at peace with the decision on what color to paint it.
|Current state of my loft. Real life people, real life.|
I would just paint it white. Because duh, I love white. I know I love white. So always paint it white right?
EXCEPT…I have visions of beautiful white board and batten flanking that wall…
So I’m stuck…too much white? White. On white. On white.
These are MAJOR first world problems – I am fully aware of that. 🙂
I’ve realized a pattern with myself though…when I get to a stand still, that means, there’s something about the space that I don’t love.
If I LOVE it = full speed ahead and you can’t stop me.
If I’m DEBATING something = I should just stop and change the spot that’s giving me doubts.
Case in point: the craft room.
Got the bed, loved it. Painted some stripes. Loved it even more. Painted even more stripes – was still in love.
|Bad lighting – sor.|
Then on a whim one day, pasted some book pages up and thought hmm…will I like this?
Instagram peeps said yep, keep going!
So I have. As you can see above – practically the whole wall is done.
But I’m still not feeling it.
I think the book pages are too…what’s the word? Harsh?
I was going for a light, airy, semi-girly feel in this room. Fresh. Blank slate. Thinking room. Reading room. Crafting room. MY room.
|Things ready to go up on the wall.|
Everything is soft neutrals.
Ugh, but it kills me to rip all these pages down.
So my two dilemmas:
1. Bed frame color?
I think I’m debating now between a soft grey, or an antiqued white.
2. More stripes or finish the book pages?
PS – does your craft room look like that too? No? Just me. Perfect. 🙂
