Painting the Bedroom

Remember when Rock looked like this?

See the paint swatches tucked in the clock? Well, I FINALLY picked one and painted the wall behind our bed in our bedroom.

Although it looks like it's black, it's really a dark dark dark dark dark green. Nocturnal Green is the official name of the paint. Since it is only on one wall, I think it's okay that it's so dark. It makes that wall the focus of the bedroom and I just love it. I especially love how the clock 'pops' now that it's against a dark surface. It really is true that a little paint changes everything. Now all I need is a pair of swing-arm lamps to go on the wall above our bedside tables. I'll post another picture if/when I find some!

I LOVE it! Even though it did look black in person,...in your pictures, it really does look greenish.
Great job!
I wish you had decorated my house. Yours looks so fantastic! You've really got talent. And whenever I have the money to redo my house, I'm calling you! :)
Love,

I love it Rachel! I think the dark color is so perfect for that clock. We are getting swing arm lamps also! Let me know when you find some cool ones...I am having trouble finding any I like for a good price.

Rachel -- I am actually having the same problem finding lamps. They are all either super expensive and cute or ugly and cheap. I haven't found any in our price range just yet. I'll keep you posted!
