It's begun! (Coral Madness)

I've officially taken steps to begin taming the coral madness I've recently acquired. I ordered these pieces of fabric and trim online:

And I started painting this chair I'm planning on recovering with said fabric:

I've also figured out how to mix fabric dye to get a nice coral color that I am planning on dying white curtains I bought at a garage sale.

I also bought a mirror and a ceramic pheasant I'm planning on spray painting. I'm getting excited for this transformation!

Don't settle for dull, live a refinished life!

Master Bedroom Wall

My final sprucing up project I have to share is the master bedroom wall. I've been thinking for a year that all the tan walls in the house were getting to be too much and I should paint a wall in the bedroom blue. I finally did it a few weeks before my company came.

Not the best pictures, but it's hard to get the right light in this room. I love my blue wall. It's bright and happy but still relaxing. I bought one quart and used every last drop. It was a perfect spruce up for not very much money.

Don't settle for dull, live a refinished life!

Coral Madness

I have a fever. And the only prescription is more....coral! The Outdoor Bar Cart I just did in coral and gray got me thinking. I really like that color. Then I started thinking some more. I like the coral and the gray together. Then I got on Pinterest (I know, dun, dun, dun!!!!). Then I was lost. I saw all this awesome stuff with coral, gray and turquoise. Now I need to have those colors in my house. My guest bedroom has been long neglected and boring. So I decided to make a Pinterest board dedicated to all the cool ideas with those colors. Then I went insane and created a Polyvore set dedicated to the idea.

My only hope is that if I start making projects for this room, it will cure the sickness... (must reupholster chair with coral and white chevron!).I do have the right color spray paint to I just need to find an ugly peacock to paint. :)
