done.

New paint goes a long way.  We are really enjoying our new white ceiling (4 coats later) and no more army green walls...









Our bedroom was an addition built by the previous owner.  This closet was intended for shoes (we think).

I have always kept it shut so that I could throw my junk in there whenever needed.

I painted the back wall a robin's egg blue and wha-lah! we have a new bookshelf...

The view out our bedroom window is playing tricks on us these days.  Our backyard went from Fall to Spring just like that...where did Winter go?

I love that blue! LOVE IT! That is such a cute idea! It's so nice to find something to do that doesn't require a lot of effort, but turns out great like that! What color is that? Where did you get it? I have had that blue on my mind, along with a shade of purple for a while now..

Love the blue! I think I should do that to the walls behind my shoe shelf. I'm doing a mini-makeover on my closet too. Love it. Will have to steal this one from you :)

I found winter for you. Yeah, you know where.

Pretty, pretty, pretty! How will you ever drag yourselves out of bed in the morning, sleeping in such a retreat?!

One more thing . . . all the framed photography on the walls . . . your photographer is aMAZing. :)

It looks so good Sara! I too love that blue and what you've done to create a book shelf. Brilliant! I'm sure you're enjoying it.

I feel the same way about the weather here. Spring is in the air! Flowers are blooming in my backyard too. In January! Crazy.
