WEEK 2 OF ORC LINKING PARTY: GUEST BEDROOM MAKEOVER

Welcome to week 2 of the One Room Challenge Linking Party.  If you missed week one, check it out here.

The past week was all about paint.  I didn't really explain much about my plan last week but I wanted to paint the room a nice shade of barely there pink. (more like light coral than pink)





I bought 2 paint samples, Soft White(top) and Sunlit Coral(bottom) both by Benjamin Moore...


The Soft white was a tad too light for me and the Sunlit Coral, although pretty, was darker than what I was looking for.

In the end, I went with Blanched Coral also by Benjamin Moore (Thanks Kimberly for the suggestion!)

(It looks beige-y here but it is actually a very light coral, maybe a few shades darker than Soft White above)





Here are 2 rooms painted in Blanched Coral...

Pretty, pretty!


I've also been busy shopping for some accessories.
Can't wait to show you what I got for the room (including an awesome vintage light fixture)!

Also, I'll be sharing a couple of DIY's too.
(Slipcovered Headboard and bed skirt, window treatments and upholstered cushion)


Here's a little teaser...


Don't forget to check out the other 72 (yes, 72 of us!) linking participants and of course the original 20!

Happy Thursday!

I have been searching for the perfect color for my master bedroom. It is a light pink now but lacks the pop I wanted. This just may do the trick! Thanks for sharing!
