I’ve been so excited to show you guys our new built ins!! They are (99%) finished!! All that’s left to do is caulk the decorative paneling pieces we added, and of course I’m dragging my feet on that. But I’m going to show them to you today anyway, in their almost-finished state. :)
And the other…
And a shot of both of ‘em…
I really, really love them!! They turned out exactly how I envisioned them and were so worth all the hard work we did to build them.
Now, let’s discuss some details. The accessories I decorated them with is a mixture of some things I already had and some new things from Goodwill, HomeGoods, Michaels and Ross.
My husband painted the backs of them the same color as our walls, Benjamin Moore’s Cream Fleece. Then, I went through and did the stenciling with Martha Stewart Living’s metallic glaze paint in Vintage Gold. I picked it because I wanted my design to be very subtle and not overpower the accessories. It turned out exactly how I had hoped it would! In certain lights only parts of the stencil show up well, and they look all metallic-y and pretty. :)
It’s a water-based paint, so it was okay for me to use it while pregnant. I did wear a mask while I painted, though, to be extra safe.
Here’s the stencil I used:
And these are the cabinet knobs:
Sighh… so pretty :)
I gotta tell ya, I’m having a BLAST decorating our little girl’s room. I am such a girly girl at heart. I can’t wait to hang curtains, and set up her crib and the rest of her furniture!!
Our next step is to replace the carpet in here. The current carpet is berber which isn’t so nice on little knees, and it was here when we moved in so we’d like to have a fresh start. We’re going to be looking around at some local stores this weekend to find the best deal. I’ll keep you updated on all of that. Then, we’ll be pretty much set to add the finishing touches!!
Thanks so much for stopping by. Until next time!
