A Pink (and Brown) Wednesday!

So.....I think I told you I was painting one of the guestrooms brown. After three coats, it's done and I love, love, love it! There is a longer story about the paint and a reason for the third coat, but it all worked out in the end....and besides, you don't want to read a book. This is the whisper pink bedroom set...and the reason for the brown paint. I just couldn't think of a better paint color with the pink. If today wasn't so gloomy you could tell just how warm and pretty the colors are. There is still much work to be done. Artwork, or something, needs to go above the headboards. Maybe a crown above each bed with fabric flowing to each side of the beds. So many options!

I've also seen some rub on vinyl sayings that might work on the opposite side of the room above this vanity. We'll see. Just thought you might like to see a few "in progress" photos.
Warmest Pink Wednesday bear hugs, Aleta

Brown gives such an elegant and warm touch, doesn't it!
Your guest room is beautiful! And the furniture too!

Aleta - I love it. That furniture is so sweet. I have been looking for beds such as this for years and still do not have them. The brown is a wonderful shade.

Hi Aleta, I love brown too. I painted our main floor powder room "mud puppy brown" - perfect for kids and pets! Yet it looks classic and formal too :) Love it!
