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.
