BeforeOur last house was a new build, and one of the things I loved about it was the Oil Rubbed Bronze door hardware (ORB). I love our "new" house, but one of the negatives about houses that are from the year 2000 or so, is that they usually have bright gold/brass colored door handles.
I searched online, and even getting a good deal on new knobs would be over $200 just for the main floor of our house! So, I decided to try spray painting our current knobs. They are nice quality, just ugly in my opinion. ;-)

The vanity was white, which is fine. However the paint was not in good condition, and I thought I might as well make the color contrast with the white counter top since I was bothering to paint it. I used Diverse Beige by Sherwin Williams, since we had it on hand from painting the living areas. It is a shade lighter than our bedroom walls.

We bought an Ikea sofa with white covers and some lace curtains there, as well, last Summer.
I saw some light pink slipcovers for sale on eBay, but didn't decide to buy them in time. So, I got the bright idea to dye our white ones pink. Ha I figured if it didn't work out, the worst case scenario was that we could get another white set for $49.
It could have turned out better, but you can't tell in the picture. ;-) My washing machine is High Efficiency, which is good for the pocketbook, but not for dye jobs. ha Doesn't use enough water to dye evenly. But I'm still fairly happy with the effect. :-)
