You guys, my bedroom is finally finished!!!
Last night after editing these photos, I crawled into bed and thought: what a lucky lady I am!
The bedroom of my dreams: white, bright, fresh, cozy, glam, modern, and traditional — all here in my sleepy place!
Take a peek!
We’ve been in our house almost 8 years, and this was one of the original rooms we painted. It was a blueish-grey (see HERE). I loved the contrast of the paint against the molding, but as time went on the darker color wasn’t doing it for me; I craved white and airy.
Brock was not super-excited about going back to white, but with the molding I assured him it would look a lot different than the track home we moved into. I’d lie in bed and visualize different molding options, and this one just seemed right, kinda like a Swiss chalet, or a crisp farmhouse. I’m happy to report I was spot on! The low windows and vault always looked a little awkward before, but now the molding totally complements the character of the room. Don’t you think?
All of our original furniture worked great in the new room, saving us a lot of money! We only splurged on the nightstand lamps for $20 each! (See HERE). Then I just painted some basic artwork for my frames and repaired a broken mirror I had in storage (but more on that tomorrow).
It constantly amazes me how paint and molding can really transform a space, and it’s really the best way to get the most “bang for your buck”.
Do you guys have any painting projects you’ve been thinking of sinking your teeth into?
If you do, I hope you find our makeover inspiring! Get to work!!!
We’d love to give Jones Paint and Glass a major shout out! We have been going there for years and love to shop where all the professionals go. There’s a big world of paint out there, and Jones is the best of the best! We always leave happy and more educated. Thank you, Jones!
