Extreme Makeover Home Edition! I've watched the show a few times, but had to put up with a lot of mockery from my architect husband for doing so. Nonetheless, this Chatham House bedroom project, one of Ty Pennington's specials, really sparked my interest.
The painting behind the bed is by artist John Paul Strain. Strain is a renowned painter of Civil War-era scenes. I really enjoyed reading his take on the wild experience of working with Extreme Makeover. The painting is 5' by 5' and Ty framed it with wood molding finished with a coat of silver paint. It looks terrific and is a great idea for DIY framing of oversized pieces. Click here for more looks at this beautiful blue bedroom coming together. Top photo: Timothy Bell.
