Going Green

I knew right away that I wanted to do a bold color on the walls in the guest room. It was just a matter of choosing the right bold color. I mentioned to Brian that I was really leaning towards something like a Kelly green and was really surprised to hear that he was 100% on board for that! I was fully expecting to have to defend my choice or talk him into it, but he was totally into it. He even helped my pick the right shade of green that wouldn’t feel like an eye irritant. I took his advice and chose a little more muted shade of green than what I originally had in mind, and it was definitely a better choice.

Going Green // thegoldbrickroad.comMy only real inspiration for this room, is an antique bedspread from my grandmother’s attic. I really wanted to bring out the green in it.

Going Green // thegoldbrickroad.comAs with all of my paneled rooms, I started cutting in around the trim and filling in the grooves with a brush, then finished filling in the rest of the walls with a roller. I find this process to be the fastest and most efficient way for me.

Going Green // thegoldbrickroad.comI left the little built-in nook area for last. I decided removing the shelves would be the easiest way to get them stained and the walls painted without making a huge mess.

Going Green // thegoldbrickroad.com Sadly, I couldn’t get the desktop out without a big ordeal, so I will just have to stain it in place and paint around it carefully.

Going Green // thegoldbrickroad.comI also had to remove the closet door for staining and expose the mess that was hiding behind it. Organizing that closet has jumped significantly higher on my to-do list after having to stare at that mess for a few days in a row.

So that’s where we are now…We are really loving the color so much already! I can’t wait to see it with the wood all stained and new bedding on the bed.
