Master Bedroom Reveal

Friday I shared a shot of our newly painted master bedroom.

Today I’m back to share the rest of the room with you. We chose to go with Sherwin Williams Rain for the color. It is definitely a calming color and really opens up the space. We also gave the trim and doors a new coat of white paint. The previous color was a little more cream and covered with drips and strokes of every previous color the room had been. It’s so nice to have all that covered up. Fresh trim really makes the room feel like a new space!

Doesn’t the paint make a wonderful backdrop for our furniture? Blue and red are really power houses of color but work well when paired together. Especially as a soft blue and rich dark wood tones. It is so refreshing to wake up in this room every morning!

I mentioned the other day that the room feels larger. In a way it does because we switched the placement of the dresser and armoire.

I have to give credit where credit is due on this one. Michael Luke came up with the idea to switch them. At first I was a little hesitant. Mainly because I enjoyed being able to see into the mirror from bed. Not that I sat in bed and fixed my hair or anything but I just enjoyed the optical illusion the mirror created that the room was deeper than it actually was. So I’ll admit the first few nights it was a little weird sitting and bed gazing at this…

but I’ve gotten used to and really enjoy all the air space it created coming into the room and heading into the bathroom. Visually you are able to see more as you enter the room so the room actually appears larger. It also works great because I have been using the mirror above the dresser when I get ready in the mornings (standing up, not in bed).

Mainly because I like to get ready while Noah naps and since both of our rooms are connected to the bathroom it’s best if I rumble through my makeup bag in our room.

I added a few pieces of McCarty pottery to the room also. They are made from Mississippi mud and have little streaks of blue in them that work well with the color scheme.

I finally got to hang these little beauties too!

Ikea

We bought them back in April when we paid a little visit to IKEA. This might actually be my favorite part of the transformation. I can’t tell you how long I have wanted lights on the wall for reading.

Before, I has a beautiful lamp that I found at a thrift store several years ago.

I still love it but it wasn’t that great functionally. I always had to get out of bed to turn it off… which is never great when you practically read yourself to sleep. It never looked right sitting closer to the bed because it left a huge void between it and the wall. Trust me… it looked funny. The wall lamps work with the space visually and really help to clear up a little space on my night stand.

It’s hard to get a good shot of the front of the bed. This one is looking at it from my closet. master bedroom

It also gives you a glimpse of the door to our room and the landing at the top of the stairs.

I mentioned the other day to someone that this furniture reminds me of the furniture from Beauty and the Beast. Partly because of it’s ball and claw feet and the shell designs on it. Can’t you just picture the bed coming to life and walking off. Random I know… but I thought I would share.

With the new arrangement of furniture we are excited to finally be able to showcase this piece of art we bought on our honeymoon to Jamaica.

We love that it has meaning behind it and plan to continue to add art work from our travels together as a family.

So that just about brings our tour of our bedroom to a close. Emma really wanted to show you where her throne bed sits now though.

It’s snuggled up between the armoire and closet door. A slight move from it’s previous spot underneath the window.

Thanks for stopping by to check out our updated room. We have a few more minor updates for it but are tickled pink blue to have the major work behind us.

Prepping for the Rain

Ok, I’ll try to make to make this quick… I really need a nap.

Master bedroom

Remember back in the Spring when I bought this accent pillow for the master bedroom? In that same post I mentioned that we bought paint for our room back in July of 2011 and still had not gotten around to paining the walls. Well we finally got around to it this past weekend.

I would love to show you completed photos of the room and let you see how beautiful it is but it’s not there yet. Right now our furniture is still in this formation.

Saturday we spackled and primed the walls.

We used leftover paint from our dining room as our primer. It’s a light gray color so it was perfect for covering up the darker green walls.

The primer is really close to our main color in shade and has the same blue undertones as our paint color. This was one of the reasons we decided to use it as our primer.

Here you can see the walls primed and a sample of our final color we chose hanging up. There isn’t a lot of difference in tonal value but a subtle shift in color.

Sunday we painted the walls Sherwin Williams Rain and fell in love with it! We managed to get the final coat painted in around three hours (the length of Noah’s afternoon nap).

It looks really blue in the picture above because this was taken in the morning light which really brings out the color in it.

The trim is what is holding us back from finishing and being able to show you the final pictures.

 

We are having to repaint it because whoever painted the room before us (twice) did a terrible job and got paint all over the trim. Not like a dab here or a dab there but a huge swipe here and another one there. So hopefully we can get the trim knocked out one night this week and then I’ll be back to share it with you.

Now onto my much needed nap. You see all this painting is finally getting to me and I sort of veered off of my migraine prevention diet this past weekend.

 

One of the things I splurged on was this amazing Nutella Marshmallow Shake from Flip Burger Boutique Saturday night where we went to celebrate Michael Luke’s birthday. It was amazing but I paying for it all now with a minor annoying headache. Hopefully, this nap will help.

Have you tackled any painting projects lately? Or maybe just created chaos in your house? Sometimes I feel like I am tornado going through our house. It doesn’t take much for me to make a mess.

Just for fun… here’s a picture of our little helper while we were painting.

Hard worker isn’t she?
