We love Chuck.
We didn't mean to get hooked on it- I mean, it's about a computer nerd who ends up with top secret information - "the intersect" - in his brain. How addicting does that sound?
But hooked (though slightly behind, so don't leave any spoilers in the comments!!) we are.
And as embarrassing as that might be to admit I have an even more embarrassing thing to confess:
I decided to redo our bedroom after seeing the hotel room Sarah sleeps in on the show.
The project is not finished, and our room is only inspired by not an exact replica of, however I am quite pleased with how it is turning out!
The first step was to replicate the headboard.
Being on a small budget I decided to use the headboard we currently had and forgo the fabric and use paint instead.
Our entire bedroom set (which is currently in 3 different bedrooms throughout the house!) was gifted to us. We loved it when it was given to us, but we were ready for change.
The dark wood is....well, dark.
I had a near panic attack thinking about ruining it.
But then I got over it and sanded the thing all over.
The trim work was solid wood and the rest of it was (I think) covered plywood.
So the wood was sanded down and the plywood just lightly sanded.
Next I primed it. I did two coats of it as I wanted to be sure the project worked.
I was tempted at this point to go for a cottage look and paint the whole thing white and distress the edges.
But I pressed on.
And move on I did - with three coats of Antique Green paint - it isn't quite as bright as the picture makes it appear. I promise.
When the room is a bit more with it I will post pictures of our Chuck inspired room.
Aces dear Chuck. Aces.
