When David and I first starting dating, it was around Christmas time. So for Christmas he decided to really impress me by giving me a picture from one of my favorite painters, Monet.
Very thoughtful idea.
Ahh, how love can blind even the most wonderful man into thinking that I would like a gold frame.
Well, surprisingly I kept this picture all of these years.
And if you know me then you know that I do not keep people’s gifts out of obligation.
If I like it, I keep it. If not, I don’t.
It is… but is just who I am. I try to avoid being a pack-rat to a fault.
All this to say, I must really, Really, REALLY love David since I have kept this picture under our bed for 3+ years.
Now that I have this huge house to decorate and exactly 3 rooms that were lacking in furniture and pictures I thought the picture may just work in our guest bedroom and save a little $$$$.
I went to Lowes and picked out a nice chocolate brown paint.
God love whomever invented little paint can samples.
They are cute and save $$
I poured a little in one of our old paint trays and used a sponge to paint it on the frame.
I didn’t want the frame to be completely brown because I knew that some of the gold would bounce off the light yellow walls in the room quite nicely.
It took me all of 5 minutes to do this.
Can you see that the walls are a soft yellow?
They are that way in the bathroom too and I am not feeling that excited about painting so I decided to keep them.
Here is the bed, new comforter (ahhh, I love comforters!) and picture all together:
The comforter is slightly masculine and the picture is mostly feminine which gives the room a nice gender balance.
I think I am quite pleased with the final product. 🙂
