Every other room in the house has been repainted once, most of them twice. Why has our master bedroom always taken the back burner. Not this weekend. She got a new coat of paint, lot's of stuff taken out and not coming back in. Now what to do about all the blank walls?
Just a few shots of the master bedroom. Oh by the way I always forget to take before pictures, so these really are during the move around, out and prep stage.
Curtains will stay, bed has to stay in this location.
Old TV location
Inherited from family chest of drawers, hubby refuses to let me paint, but does look better without the flash.
The carpet looks bad, because well, the carpet is bad. It is on our wish list.
New color on right, much lighter and brighter. Nomadic Desert, Sherwin Williams
Have you ever used this stuff... really works, I mud first, when dry you tape over and you paint right over the tape. Can't even tell it is there.
A fresh new corner of the room
The chair I needlepointed when I was pregnant with my third daughter. Took me the whole pregnancy, I call it the Lynley chair. Really not so pink, but needed to use the flash.
My daughter's Mother-in-law gave me this for Christmas. Do I need to read between the lines? ABC's of aging gracefully??
Alligator suitcase my husband bought before we were married. A good place to rest my new nook book that I got for my birthday. It is tucked inside the fancy new cover/holder thing. My sister got one too so we can share books!
Side table below will be painted. Kim at Savvy Southern Style just gave me some glazing tips.
Much Better TV area.
The old beauty of a chest cleans up nice.
Drapes get to stay, I love them. They are more of a mossy green.
I adore our sleigh bed, the detail on the headboard and wood pattern is unique.
A great match to the arch of the bed is our crescent window. Fun to watch the seasons change through there.
That's a tiny tour. I love walking in there today. All clean and fresh paint! It is a huge room and took a little over a gallon of paint. But lucky for me the paint covered well and only needed one coat.
