The color is a lot lighter and brighter. Just what I was looking for. This first picture is the "truest" picture of the new wall color.... the name, Raffia Cream by Behr.
I found these fabulous "Paris" prints by Marius Girard at the thrift store for .99 cents each... I found others in the "Paris" series on ebay... the going price a bit more than my .99 cents!
Of course they were an odd size so when I put the in my IKEA frames, a bargain for an 11 x 14 at $9.99, I found they were too large for the mat opening. My solution?
Put them on TOP of the mat... worked great, the glass keeps them in place. Placing the pictures on top of the mat also means I can still see the tattered, stained, worn edges... which I really like!
The colors pick up on most of the colors I'm trying to incorporate into my room. I really like how they look in my lighter and brighter, perhaps soon to be finished, bedroom. And not bad for a whopping $22.96 for two good sized pieces of art!
And a little sneak peak you say?
Here's to having time to get inside projects done soon... Tonight after watering my gardens, there was the faint smell of wood smoke in the air... fall is just around the corner.
