We recently parted with two of our bookcases in the guest bedroom (That "Empty Nest" Feeling Revisted). With the bookcases removed we needed to paint the room.

I wanted to stay with green, but perhaps a lighter shade. Steve (our painter) and I chose a pretty Benjamin Moore soft green (Rainforest Dew). To make the room seem larger Steve suggested painting the ceiling the same color. That worked very nicely.
It was fun rearranging the furniture in the room with more space sans the bookcases.

Steve always has wonderful ideas regarding placement of art on the walls and accent pieces. He took several pictures we had and arranged a collage on the wall near the television.

A basket of fluffy green and gold towels and we are ready for guests to enjoy the "redo" of the bedroom.

This was fun!! And thanks to Steve, who was a tremendous help. Everyone needs a "Steve", and I need another project!!!!!
