At first I was thinking of painting them a bright green colour but after the bedroom was painted and I put the new quilt cover on I changed my mind.
I've gone with a soft grey so that they aren't the main feature in the room. The soft grey is so they stand out from the white walls but aren't the first thing you notice when you walk in the room.
After three coats of paint they are back in the room.
I'm really happy with them.
