SO....Here it is..all painted in a creamy Heirloom White. Do ya like it? I took everyone's advice, even my hubbys...and now everything in my room will match. I am making BIG progress...the room is painted! I need to clean the rug and start moving everything back into the room and organize...Oh and I can hardy stand it..Iwanna get this done.

Thanks for much for helping me..its nice to have friends give you their opinion. I always like to know how others think. Plus...I think I was leaning on painting it but was tired...after all I painted about 6 or 7 pieces for my room...whew!!!!'s how my room looks...just overlook the mess of painting though okay?

Here's the walls after my sweet hubby went over the design on the walls and then today I did all the cutting in.

Here it is! Now..that bed is going downstairs...but you can also see that the desk is creamy heirloom white here to. We did everything, walls and ceiling too!

Thanks for stopping time you see this WILL be done! YIPPEEE

Hi Lorena, I love the ceiling and walls painted the same color!

I was reading Jeanies blog and you mentioned your cat Punkin!
I don't know if I ever told you I had a big fat orange cat named Punkin {spelled the same way} we called him bubba because he was sooooo fat!!!

Hi! I love your sewing/craft room! I am in the process of doing the same thing (my son is now on his own-he is all grown up!). But my room isn't quite so big - but I have a question - I have tried and tried but can't find who makes the "heirloom white" paint you talk about. The only one I could find was Rustoleum, and didn't know if that was the paint you use? I would love to find out exactly who makes the paint, would you mind letting me know please?

Thanks from Michigan - Diane
