One of the first rooms we painted when we moved in during the summer of 2016 was our master bedroom. I don’t have many before pictures, but it was possibly my least favorite color ever. It was a mauve/blush type color. Ugh! Fine for many people, just not my taste. We decided to paint it more of a “moody” gray (Whale Gray by Benjamin Moore). Here are some before, during painting, and after pictures:
SO MUCH BETTER!!!
And here are some after pictures of the space now:
We haven’t changed our bathroom or closet area at all yet, but one day we will (and it will be glorious)! I’ll share more pictures of that space when we get closer to that project, but for now, I’ll show a picture of before we moved in versus today:
We never use that sink (there’s another one in our bathroom- which is the doorway on the right in the picture above). This picture reminds me of our powder room before redoing it (except a lot cleaner, hah!). One day I would also like to add overhead lighting to the bedroom (and have the switch control lighting instead of an unused outlet). That might happen around the same time as the bathroom project.
Here’s some more current pics of the bedroom:
I love the giant pictures on the wall. We have the hospital pictures on the top row, and corresponding newborn pictures on the bottom row for each of our babies. The oldest is on the left, youngest on the far right. Note how my hair gets progressively neater and I look less tired for the second and third kids. The last hospital picture is smaller than the others because it’s just an iPhone picture, and mpix (LOVE this company for my prints!) warned against making it any larger. Hahaha! Definitely reflects how much faster the successive births were. ☺️
Anyone else like using an essential oil diffuser (I love mine)?!
And a few more before and afters, because I can’t get over the original paint color (note the top picture was taken before we moved in):
Yes, I always have a vase of flowers on the bed… 😉 Actually, our pup Winston is usually on the bed…
Anyone else re-painting a room in their house? Or stealing the flowers from their backyard for indoor bouquets (that’s where my daffodils and forsythia came from)?! It’s finally feeling like spring outside around here (ignoring the snow flurries we had yesterday)… 😀
