The garden room

Behold a painting miracle:


I totally LOVE the paint color, it looks even better than I expected.  It is Sherwin Williams Independent Gold in a flat finish.   We primed the walls first in white, then painted the green.  We painted the trim in West Highland White, after priming first with pigmented shellac, then 2 coats of primer.  Unfortunately, the floor has some water damage; we know what our next floor refinishing project will be, but in the meantime, we’ll add an area rug.


The chair is slipcovered with a sheet that picks up a color from the simple curtains I made.  When I met him, Dan had that little green lamp on the marble-topped commode, and the barely discernible turquoise blue dishes are a gift from the room’s frequent occupant, my twin-sister-of-another-mother (mothers who are distantly related but don’t know it), Holly.


We still need to paint the door, but it will do for now.  The ceiling is a simple white and we replaced the light with the fixture we swapped for an LED light at the entrance to the dining room.


I sewed a curtain for the closet, I’d like to add a door, but the futon makes that challenging.


Finally, today I added the purrfect touch.
