the purple room

i had a blue room in my house...

it wasn't terrible, but it wasn't my favorite either.

but i needed inspiration. i didn't know what to do with it. then it all came together beautifully.

a friend of ours found a futon that a neighbor was getting rid of... the best price free. how could we pass up this offer? so we went and picked up the futon, bought a new cover and a couple of pillows and the room looked great.

besides a few small details

the room did look great with the futon, but it was still blue and didn't match my newly purchased yellow and purple pillows...so what is a girl to do...

the only thing i could possibly do i bought purple paint, of course, and painted three walls purple. the accent wall is an ivory/cream color which we mixed ourselves with some paint that we found in our garage from the previous owners.

thanks to the help of some visitors this weekend we finished the entire room in less then 2 hours. i must admit... i love it. i never thought i would like a purple room... but i do!!

now i am just going to take my time to either buy or paint a perfect picture for the accent wall.
