|This picture was an afterthought, so it's taken under my sink, where I didn't bother to paint.|
Ugly, huh? I honestly don't know how I lived with it as long as I did. Funds and other, more important projects did play a huge role in it, though. Okay, here's the semi-finished project:
The paint was some I bought with this project in mind (got it super cheap from the "OOPS" section in Walmart). I wanted something like a dark grey, and apparently, there were LOTS of people not pleased with their grey, so there were several gallons to choose from in the color pallette I was looking for. Lucky me! With the prices of the oops cans, I was able to get more then one gallon, just in case I didn't like my first choice. I simply added 1x4's to the walls to give it the wainescotting look, primed and painted those and the walls between. I have some vintage signs and frames I have made, and need to hang, and others in the works. Hopefully the simple touches I add at the end will pull my whole room together.
Here's a pic of the sign I've already made (yet to hang), a clock I made, and one of the small frames. One problem... what color towels should I buy? Thoughts or ideas please!
