Before Chris had his surgery, we made a list of projects that I could probably tackle myself and our bedroom was at the top of that list. Our poor, sad, neglected room we haven’t touched since moving in, with the exception of new flooring.
We’ve since moved those lamps onto the fauxdenza in the living room and the frog tape experiment is still on the wall…so it somehow got even worse than the photo above! This week, I am patching that small section of drywall that was rotted from improperly sealed windows and painting the walls–finally! I’ve been giving that bright blue accent wall the stink eye for 18 months.
You saw on Instagram yesterday the plethora of paint chips I was deciding between. I love putting any and all options up on a nice, sunny blank wall in the room first. Anything goes. I usually quickly narrow it down to just a handful. Within 3 minutes, I had it narrowed down to these 8:
(From left to right: Top Row–Feathers of a Dove, Cool Sea Air Middle Row–Chalk, Alpine Peak, Snowflake Bottom Row: Cadet Song, Flannel Gray, White Pistachio)
As you can see, they are still pretty much all over the board. Some lights, darks, cool and warm paint colors. This is when I bring Chris in–after all, it’s his room, too. He quickly pulled 4 more off the wall he didn’t care for and we were able to choose our final color together from that point. I hope to have those photos for you on Friday! That’s my goal. To have the wall patched and painted by then. In the meantime, here’s where we’re headed with the rest of the room:
Even in our last house, we never really did much with our bedroom, so this project has me more excited than normal. I am taking extra care to make this room special and a space Chris and I can both love for a long time. A good balance of masculine and feminine and a lot of coziness. I’ll be back Friday with an update! Any guesses on which paint color we went with?
