Today I’m here to share with you some details about how THINGS ARE HAPPENING in the bedroom!
Get your head out of the gutter! What I mean is that a little overhaul is happening. Goodbye dark dungeon gray!
Don’t get me wrong, there was a part of me that loved that moody color for our master bedroom. And a handful of you might even remember when we painted it that color a few years ago! But I never loved the purple-ish tint that it had. And I’ve been yearning for something bright and happy!
Beauty is pain.
Normally, Nick rolls and I cut in around the edges with a brush… and we can knock out a room in no time at all. Neither one of us really enjoys painting walls, but at least we’re together and it gets done fast.
In addition to Nick’s full-time job, he’s also going back to school full-time as well, so I’m very careful about asking him to help with things that I’m certainly capable of doing myself. So I put on my big-girl panties and just went for it!
I was dreading the idea of mannnny coats to cover that deep color, but it ended up only taking two coats! It was worth spending a few extra dollars for high quality paint this time around. I used straight-up white paint in the Emerald line by Sherwin Williams.
We have some really exciting things planned for this room! And one of the biggest changes is that we’re changing up the layout of the room by swapping the bed from the east wall to the west wall. I’ve got some devious plans floating around in my little head for a really awesome accent wall here (and ironically, the other side of this wall is the Patchwork Herringbone Accent Wall in the twins’ big girl room!
I’m still unsure about what exactly will be going on with the other side of the room, but for now leaning toward a seating area and storage for lots o’ books. Annnnd, I’m toying with the idea of painting the trim something OTHER than white. (whaaaa? right?!)
This room transformation will be a slow process, but I’m so excited to see it unfold!
