The power of paint never ceases to amaze me. We hadn't touched our bedroom since we moved here, and in fact, hadn't done much for our room in many years.
So here is the before:
The green walls were there when we moved in. It was nice and bright, but I really wanted something deep and dark and cozy.
I bought that quilt 9 years ago with the plan that we would have a dark room. But we rented for so long was never practical to paint.
Gabe actually found the perfect color. He collects paint chips every time we go to a home improvement store. :)
The moment I started I knew I loved it. That doesn't always happen, you know?
Love it! I can't stop admiring it when I'm in there.
It even makes the door and closet doors look great and I figured I needed to paint them or something. So glad I did the walls first.
The color is French Gray by Glidden. Which incidentally I also really liked the low VOC formula.
We still need to actually decorate. And just ignore Matt's messy dresser. After 11 years, I have given up. I have come to terms with it. :) He needs a new dresser, I need a new night stand, we need a headboard and I'm thinking new sheets and curtains.
But for now, I just love going in there and snuggling down.
