Our Blue Wall

We really love the way the blue shows off all the wood in our room. It's quite rich looking.
We stained and installed an 8 ft shelf between our bathroom and closet doors; it's actually bigger than it looks in this picture.

You can see the new carpet in this pic. We still have to finish the thresholds and install the trim around the entrance door, but other than that, we're DONE!

notta, you should have seen some of our first projects. As we tackled more projects and got more and better tools, our work improved.

It takes a while to learn how to do that and some people never learn - they should just hire it done. You're lucky you dont' fall into that category. :-P

I never would have thought of dark blue as a way to showcase wood. We have stained wood trim and mantle. Also, we like wood furniture. We'll have more of that when we figure out how to gently whoop butt on my mother-in-law's Rustoleum.

Thanks WC!

Sage, my whole color scheme came about as a result of the printed paneling we put up on the window wall of our room. It's called snow leaf or something like that. It's light blue, gray and white, with leaf patterns in it. The ceiling now matches the gray in the wall and the dark blue is just a much darker shade of the blue in the pattern. The carpet is in between the light and dark blues.
You've got a whole winter's project removing that Rustoleum!
