Bedroom Beautiful

Happy Labor Day! 

Tim's parents offered to take Sawyer for a couple days and so we have finally had time to do things like organize the garage, paint some furniture, fix up the laundry room, etc. We've been working hard on bedroom furniture and I wanted to share some pictures of what we have accomplished thus far...

I found these funky bed-side tables on Craigslist and thought they would add fun texture to our room. 

My new favorite paint color is called "Beige Shadow." I found it at Lowe's and then saw it featured in "House Beautiful" as one of 2010's top 5 colors. I felt very trendy :). 

After a few coats of paint and a bit of clear coating (to keep the furniture from feeling sticky), we had lovely new pair of bed-side tables!!

Finally, we painted Tim's dresser with the "beige shadow." I have no idea how many times that dresser has been painted but I know it has been used by quite a few Kanallakan family members. I love how it turned out!

Our room is definitely starting to come together. I have a few more projects to work on tomorrow, before we go pick up Sawyer. More pictures to come soon...


  1. Nice! I like beige shadow :) It sounds like the name of an Indian chief at a casino...kinda.

  2. Haha! I was thinking more like a Swedish spy's code name.
