ORC: Week 4 - Peyton's Room Update

I finally began painting the room. It is not done yet, as it needs another coat of paint. I used Behr Compass Blue in eggshell finish, and I love it! It is a very rich color. Surprisingly these photos make the color appear royal blue, but it is extremely dark.


I mentioned last week I was going to remove the ceiling fan blades and paint them navy. Well, I spray-painted them, but then proceeded to repaint the blades using the same paint I used on the wall. 

At first, I was a bit nervous as to how they would turn out, but fortunately, I have no regrets.

I also made this artwork for the room because my son loves cars. It was difficult to capture a good shot because of the glare. 

I purchased this rug This rug is a lovely purchase from Urban Outfitters. Orange accents blend nicely with the navy walls in the room.

Hopefully you have already checked out the other great talents  over at  Linda's. I am probably the last to post....(shame, shame), but I will not give up :-)

Have a great weekend!


  1. Oh my goodness, I love what you've done! I love the ceiling fan...now that I've seen it, I want to paint mine! I also love the art - how perfectly creative! Good luck with the rest of your plans - I can't wait to see it!

    1. Aww, thanks Shelia:-) I was a bit nervous at first, but decided I would re-paint it the original color if I did not like it. It turns out I truly love it!
