The William Morris Project: Week 6

Urgh.

That about sums up my productivity this week.  Due to weather and Valentine's Day and just a lot going on, I've only done about 20% of what I wanted to.  I had hoped this post would be a big reveal for this week, but instead, I will have to settle for showing you some of my plans.  Plans still count for The William Morris Project, right?



First, J's room. My plan was to have it all painted and put back together in full - new bedding, an actual curtain rod, framed pictures, etc.  Instead, I have this:


I've marked the paint colors above.  The walls will be pale grey with one wall having grey & orange stripes.  
I know.  That kid LOVES orange, and THAT is the color he picked.  But, it's still better than the 2 dark brown walls and 2 orange walls he has now.  Not to mention the ceiling fan done in the same colors.  Excuse me, I think I barfed in my mouth just a little bit.  

**I've gotten as far as priming the walls, and priming & painting the trim.  Wall color goes up today! 

M's room is below.  Her walls will be "Barely Pink", and I think I'm going to do an accent wall in her closet with the "Blooming Pink".  Not sure yet.  But I am DYING to get hers done so we can finally use her new bedding and hang curtains and get rid of the heinous purple walls.  I wish we could yank out the purple carpet, too, but it's just not going to happen in the near future.  I really hope the pink on pink is not going to be too awful with the purple carpet.  Just thinking about it upsets my stomach a little bit. Maybe I'll start keeping my eyes open for carpet remnants.......


I adore the Paris bedding.  The white with hot pink border is her duvet cover.  Her 2nd set of sheets is pink with white polka dots.  She's got a few cute pieces of art to hang on the walls, and I'm going to make more using the Cricut and the Summer in Paris cartridge.  I also gave her this as a birthday gift, and it is begging to be hung.


It's from the Sugarfresh etsy shop, and I looooooove it.  

So that's it for this week.  I have high hopes that next week will bring pictures of J's room all painted and back to normal.  Crossing my fingers......

I think you got more done than you realize. Picking out paint colors is a huge task for me. Seeing those chips with the colors marked paired with the bedding is like looking at a design board of your plans. I'm impressed with your progress and can't wait to see how it looks next week!

I want Paris bedding! Can you stop by when you are finished there?!

Kelly said...

I can't wait to see the finished pics! Although, I can't imagine why you want to change J's room. My boys thought his room was awesome! ;)

Amy said...

Oh, but you're now good to go . . . and they're going to look fabulous when you're finished!

I love the robots and the color choices, look forward to seeing how the rooms turn out.

Plans totally count! Plus, detailed action plans with paint and bedding and artwork count double. Don't forget to share the after photos!

Looks like you've got a lot of great plans in the works! Getting it all in place is half the battle, so well done! Can't wait to see both rooms when they are finished!

Jules said...

I agree with everyone else. You got more done than you give yourself credit for. I've been wanting to get a child of God print for the boys for a while now. I'm waiting until I combine their rooms.

Love the robots! And that orange/tangerine, so much fun for a child's room. The Parisian-inspired girl's cover is too sweet. Can't wait to see the finished rooms.

I love the gray/orange/robot scheme. Can't wait to see it. And, come check out my WM post this week, as I have the same "Springtime Bloom" on 3 of my daughter's 4 walls in her room re-do. It's PINK. (Love the bedding you have for her.)

Getting everything planned out is more that half the battle. Love the robots!
