Have you ever noticed how on Trading Spaces they can paint a 12x12 room in no time at all? Maybe it's the catchy jingle they play while they speed everything up or maybe it's the just the design team themselves busting their ass to get the job done. I haven't quite figured it out but I wish I would have known their technique this past weekend. Travis is moving back to Conroe later this month and on Saturday the two of us painted his bedroom in his parents house. We decided on a mossy shade of green. We used a dry brush technique that makes the dried paint look like linen. The room turned out awesome. I took some before and after pictures so you can see the effect for yourself.
(will post later)
Many of you know that I can't stand to go to stores that are "super sized" like Wal-Mart, Sam's or Costco. I don't buy anything in bulk and therefore don't go there. I thought the same of Home Depot and Lowes until Saturday when we went to get the paint. I never realized all the things Lowes has. It has EVERYTHING you could ever think of for home improvement and it's affordable. If you or someone you know is into design or home improvement you should definitely scan the aisles at Lowes! I will definetly be a repeat costumer. . .Wal-Mart is still out of the question.
Just when you thought this entry couldn't get anymore interesting I found this awesome duvet cover that would go great with the room and Travis' furniture. I hope he can eventually get the cover and the other linens that go along with it.
Anyway the big move takes place at the end of the month so let the joy of packing begin!
