I can’t shake the idea of painting the whole room white. “What?? Are you crazy? Paint over all that work?” This is the reaction most people have given me so far, but I hope my blog friends will hear me out.
Here’s why I’m strongly considering it:
1. White will reflect more light in the room.
2. White is a great backdrop to a gallery wall of art and family photos.
3. I’m hoping it will feel fresh and modern.
Here’s my concern:
1. White might feel stark. And boring…and I might miss my stencil.
When I look at these gorgeous white washed rooms, they are so far from boring. Are they not just perfect?? I just don’t know if I can pull it off in my own home.
Ok, yes. Recreating this look will take more than a can of paint, but a can of paint is what I can afford right now. We have a table being made by a friend who is new to the wood working game, and I have a Pinterest board with other things I hope to fill the room with eventually. I’m getting ancy to start, but don’t want to take off before I have a clear idea of what’s going in the room.
Alright, you’ve heard my pitch. What say you, paint it white or leave it alone?
