purplebr hollywood studios

here is the base for my hollywood studios style bedroom.

when I was deciding what color for the bedroom, I wanted gold, then no dark pink, then a trendy, chic grey/tan, and then I finally just thought, 'what color do you want to wake up to and have to look at first thing every morning for a couple of years at least?"

I grabbed a handfull of purple paint chips and wandered over to the houseware area in Walmart and started holding them up to dark red pillows and yellow curtins and then different pieces of art and decided on this one.

The Kilz One Coat guarantee was a crock, though. Still gonna need 2 coats, for some reason. I even stopped painting and drove to Home Depot to get different paint rollers, but it was not a case of equipment problems. From smooth to medium/rough finish rollers, the paint was streaky as can be. Good thing I'm only doing one room!

I really love it!

What's the story?

During the past 46 years, I've lived in Connecticut. I've traveled up and around the U.S. and to Puerto Rico, and loved every minute. I've had 4 children who are now fantastically talented adult artists and comedians. I've been married and then divorced and then engaged and then single and finally *big sigh* content. I've grown into a darn good nurse, cook, seamstress, and Mom.

Maybe one of these days I'll get this 'writing' thing down, too.
