One thing that DOES make me feel better is walking into my freshly painted bedroom!
We've been in our house almost 6 years & our master bedroom & bathroom were the only 2 rooms in the whole house without paint.
My friend Melissa had just recently painted her bedroom in Benjamin Moore - Wedgewood Gray, but color-matched by Sherwin-Williams. My sister Julie took Melissa's "tester can" to try on her own walls & when she showed me the color it was the EXACT color I had been wanting for my own walls. I painted a square behind the door & I L.O.V.E.D. it!
My goal in a paint color was to find a shade close to the darker blue in my bedding. I think we came pretty close!
We cracked open the paint cans on Sunday & we had lots of help from Izzy & Maggie. I let them start on 1 wall & this is what it looked like when they took their first break. I honestly thought this wall was going to be a loss but with another full coat of paint on, it turned out fine. :-)
We didn't take down the TV bracket before painting, so I left a little love note in the white space. Now, Bo can think of it every time we watch tv. :-)
I personally think the room turned out beautifully! Now, we need to find something new to put above the headboard & finish putting everything back on the walls.
