I had promised her from the first day we started the house, her room could be pink. She is my little princess child, everything needs to be pink. She had hoped that the entire house exterior would be painted pink. (And our car, and the sky, and the dog…..you get the picture!)
So, since all you lovely readers helped me win the last American Clay contest I spent my winnings on buying Porcelina Clay and tried out one of their new colors Coral Springs (actually, I lighted up the color and used one bag of Sugarloaf and 1/4 of a bag of Baton Rouge)
Here is the BEFORE shot:
(All walls done in Shaker Beige by Benjamin Moore)
And the AFTER!:
Can you see all the texture? The look/feel of it is so amazing in person, I wish you could all come over to my house and see it It truly gives off such an ambiance…….you’ll never regret doing clay in your home!
It was the softest pink EVER, I was so pleased with the color. (it was a little risky since I was the first to “invent” this particular color!) If I had to match it to a Benjamin Moore color I would say it matched “Love and .Happiness” 1191
The ceiling was done in Decorators White by Behr. I did it in flat paint. In my opinion you always should do flat on ceilings. One reason being it absorbs the light that is blaring on it but I don't recommend flat paint on walls with people who have kids. It is harder to wash and it absorbs all those greasy finger print.
Remember that pink lamp makeover? I did the shade out of scrapbook paper……if you haven’t checked it out be sure and do that
Those drapes were only $2.00 each side BRAND new at the thrift store!
(Remember the seashell and mirror mosaic art I created using those left over capiz sea shells? I found the entire string of them for a few bucks at the thrift store.)
WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK????
Both my daughter and I are tickled pink about it ha,ha! Do you guys like it?
