I am debating trying to start up a link party. I figured there are a lot of parties out there for folks who make things and decorate and whatnot, but I don't believe I've come across one that shows off things people are currently working on.
(edit: I Googled it and apparently there are some folks out there who DO do this, but I didn't see any in linky form and it wasn't any blogs I am familiar with)
Being the multitasker that I am, I often have my brush in about 10 different pots of paint at the same time. And with that, there comes lots of unfinished -or works in progress- pieces.
I figured that not only will it justify for me that I'm not the only one who's always got something brewing, but it will also give myself and others the chance to ask for feedback, suggestions, cheering on- whatever we need to help us get the job done.
So while I'm mulling over whether this will work as a weekly party (and please comment to let me know what you think!) I'll leave you with my current Work In Progress...
I mentioned in my post on Monday, that I'd found these two headboards while out thrifting last weekend.
My plan is to paint them white (don't hate on me for painting wood- these are in bad shape and a refinisher I am not!) and then they're going into the little boys' bedroom.
We're getting rid of their bunkbeds. They're SO overwhelming in the small space.
Now here's where I'd like some suggestions.
I've cleaned and sanded them
and primed them
I've bought Rustoleum Gloss Pure White spray paint to cover them.
Do I distress or not distress? I'm not a big fan of the more feminine, heavily distressed shabby chic look and these ARE for a boys' bedroom- however, since they're bound to become slightly distressed on their own anyway just living in that room, should I give them an understated-but-intentional "scuff" here and there?
The walls are going to go this nautical blue color (Glass Sapphire), the trim and closet door will be Pure White (I used Behr's color preview tool on their website to show you an image with the wall and trim colors)
The bedspreads will be a plaid quilt with fairly traditional boy colors- similar to this one from PB Teen
So let me know what you think! Crisp white on the headboards or distressed?!
And don't forget to chime in on my idea for the weekly party too. Thanks! :)
