Living Room Progress

blue paint ideas
Remember this little nightstand I found at Goodwill for $6 that I posted about here. I also gave you a sneak peak here when I talked about painting hardware.

Not so pretty…

Well 6 months later I am finally posting the night stand and desk. Sorry it too me so long. lol.

Here is the desk finished. I LOVE the blue. The color Robins Egg Blue by Valspar. A litte lot sanding, some prImer and  2 coats of paint made her charming again. I still need to paint the mirror, but that will be for another day. I’m thinking Black… what do you think?
I also gave my drapes a little makeover. They shrunk after I washed them from a little taco soup incident with my son’s friend (a.k.a. taco soup spilled across my entire floor, up the desk, Christmas tree, drapes and couch). I wish I took a picture. It was pretty hilarious..kind of. I guess it was pay back from my son breaking things at their house. ;)

I spray painted the rods black and added ruffle/ric rac trim to the bottom of the curtains. Let me know if anyone wants me to write up a tutorial.
Well it looks like nap time is over… I’ll post the rest of the room later tonight. :)
Happy Tuesday!
