New furniture

The house is coming along..still lots to do but the end of the tunnel is almost in view!! In the meantime I got busy buying furniture! I have been eyeing....drooling over actually, a piece of Stanley Brand "Coastal Living" collection furniture to be exact. Made in America!! Unfortunately, that means mucho dinero!! So, I was thrilled to see the floor model on sale and then another price cut!! That baby was mine!!! Its a TV Deck Armour that is painted and the top had louvered it!! Its painted a blueish/greenish color...with the louvered doors and that color I fell in love with all its beachyness!!

I was on a furniture buying roll!!Things were on sale since it was the end of the Memorial Weekend. The next day I bought our bedroom dresser....its in white and has 11 drawers and the handles match the handles on the TV Deck/chest.

I am thinking of doing this: TV Deck/chest in the blueish/greenish color, Bed headboard in white, dresser in white and nightstands with the blueish/greenish color and louvered top cabinet (Stanley, Coastal Living).

I want to have the walls done in Board and Batten and painted white. Wondering what color to paint the upper walls?? A blueish/greenish color? How about a caramelish (I know..that is not a word!)brown color? Any other ideas?? What do you think of those colors???

I'd love any advice or ideas!!! I want to turn our plain, no architectural features bedroom into a beachy, relaxing retreat!



  1. Oh yeah, that wall color is outta there! And, notice the new love of my life is standing on the blue carpet padding from the old carpet that we said "bye bye, good riddence to".

  2. Just realized that you cannot see the true color of this TV Deck....its a greenish blue...more green than shows very light in these pictures! Its much darker than it looks...the best way I can describe the color is green with blue in it as well.

  3. Its from the "Coastal Living" Collection by Stanley furniture..the color is Morning Sky.
