Using the Chip It! button has been so fun. Have you tried it yet? I’ve almost changed my mind a dozen times about the colors to use in our guest room, but I’m sticking with my Ruby picture. I loved that chicken, and I love the colors in the Chip It! palette, and I want the guest room to remind me of Ruby.
Since we now have 25 pet chickens and when someone comes to visit they want to meet the chickens right off the bat, I’m thinking of using a chicken theme in the room. The walls are going to be painted the Sand Beach color. I would love to use the Rockwood Medium Brown for the trim, but I think we’re going with the White Flour for the baseboards and window trim.
For the bed, I think I have a quilt that will coordinate with the palette (I need to do some more unpacking), and if not, I’ll make a new quilt. It was easy to match fabrics to the palette colors. Also, I ordered dust ruffles since the bed is so tall. I ordered a long tan one and a shorter eyelet-type one, and I think both of those will go great with the Chip It! palette.
A couple of decorating items have been purchased for the walls. Everywhere we go, the printed Chip It! palette goes with me. The last trip we made to Abilene, I found some little cabinets that had a couple of shelves and a couple of baskets. I’d like to go back and get two of those and paint them using the Rockwood Medium Brown. The baskets had a plain liner, and my friend Doris suggested using chicken fabric to make new liners for them. I may go back to Abilene to get those. The bed in this room is an old bed and it’s really high, so while a traditional night stand is too low, the cabinets I found would be perfect.
