So I spent this weekend working on the spare bedroom. In the midst of another project we decided to repurpose the room, getting rid of the king size bed and putting my exercise stuff in there so we can work out together and have a space for it. We decided to make it southwest to display pictures from our trip to AZ and UT a couple years ago. I had several images already framed, just needed to move them in to the room. Originally, I was going to make each wall a different color. I found a couple colors I liked but I had a hard time finding an "orange", finally settled on one that looked really good. Andy likes it too. He suggested putting sand in the paint since sand is southwest. The walls had very little texture to them. I decided on one color and added the "sand" for that texture and painted the room Saturday. The pictures below don't show it well at all. It is a darker orange. Except for a few breaks I worked on it from about 9 in the morning until after midnight. Got the walls painted and the two book cases put together. Today, I hung some pictures and gave away the mattress set through craigslist. We were thinking of putting a futon or sleeper sofa in there but for now we were going to use a couch I had in storage. I was telling my mom about it and she said my brother had a futon he was wanting to get rid of. I texted him and sure enough! We went over there this afternoon and got it. I had Andy help me bring in the tv and stand all I need to do now is hook it up and make sure it works. Also need to get the wii brought in here too so I can do my exerbeat and zumba games.
Here are some pictures of the room. Its almost done. But I wanted to share!
