Sam’s room completed

Sam’s room is complete.  After a few days of shopping with my inspiration piece I was able to pull it all together.  I gave Annie a call and we set up a day to get it all done.  Yesterday we spent the entire day painting together, talking about everything under the sun and laughing a lot.  The day goes by quickly when your trying to complete a room in a day.  We were able to pull it off and the results are wonderful.  The walls are painted Behr eggshell 480A-2 Botanical Tint and the trim Behr semi-gloss W-B-500 1850 Ultra Pure White.  It is a beautiful brilliant bright color scheme.  Once we laid the bedspread across the bed everything just popped.  The fabric I purchased at the second-hand store became the valances and add green and pull your eye up when you look in the room….The closet doors received a whimsical treatment from stick on dots in the room colors.  Sam can move them around the room wherever he wants.  A fun addition for him to interact with.  I told Annie she will wake up each day with the dots some else in the room…Sam and Annie are thrilled with the results.  I believe my favorite and best compliment I have ever received when decorating was when Sam’s cousin David said he needed me to come and trick out his bedroom…..Annie I laughed a lot about the new word we learned…I now trick out bedrooms. LOL

    They are adorable….you can move them around where ever you want. They will be great for Sam. He loves to sit on the floor and watch TV so I purchased a rug with large loops so he can twist them while he watches TV and lean back on a microfiber lime green cushion that has arms attached. He can pick it up and move it around wherever he wants. The big pillow on the bed is made of the poly satin material that is around the edge of blankets so it makes a scratchy sound when you run your fingernails over it as well as being very soft….another textural item he can touch. Many elements for Sam to enjoy. I think Annie had more fun with the dots than Sam will. You can purchase them at Target. They have many types of appliqués as well. Thank you for the comments.

    Love the dots and that cheerful blue wall color — doesn’t it feel great that you made Sam and Annie so happy (and got the ultimate compliment from Sam’s cousin!) Great job!
