Master Bedroom: New Paint {Benjamin Moore-Wedgewood Gray}

I've feel like I've been a little MIA this week because I've been feeling mega cruddy!  My cocktail of antibiotics, NyQuil, DayQuil, Mucinex & OJ haven't seem to have made a difference in the crud that's taken residence in my face & lungs, and I can barely talk (which some people might be enjoying)  :-) but alas, I'm sure I'll survive.  I will have gone through 27 boxes of kleenex...but I'll survive.

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.
