Wall Color Reveal

Hey, all! Last week I made some progress on my room, and I thought I'd show you.  I enlisted the help of Ashley and our friend Kate to come over and help me paint.  I adore the color.  To be honest, I thought I was going to go with the darker of the two colors in the post where I asked you're opinion, but I changed my mind once I a) painted a bigger swatch on the wall and b) read all your advice. I think this color {Sea Cap by BEHR} will be the perfect backdrop to some pretty whites, golds, pinks and corals. So purrttyy :)

Here's a peek:



The painting I did a few weeks ago is a great addition- I love how the peachy-pink compliments the minty-seafoam walls. 


New Anthropologie bedding: 

Sneak peek of the bookshelf:

This is where my big gallery wall is going to hang. I'm so excited about this I could squeal...it's coming together so well and I can't wait to get all the pieces up on the wall.

So here's my to-do list:
- Receive fabric swatch for curtains to color match the paint color
- Paint the room

- Refinish an old nightstand {Can't seem to have good luck at the Goodwill's near me:( }
- Purchase all white bedding
- Put together the architectural gallery wall {Almost done!}
- Help Grandma sew the curtains
- Locate an inexpensive chandelier
- Chair for reading nook
- Wallpaper for bookshelves <-- possibly vetoing this and going with stenciling instead!
- Accessories 



There's the progress so far! Are you working on anything in your home lately?
Enjoy your Tuesday:)
Love,
