I’m back! I will post more on my little blogging hiatus later. Today my bedroom was featured over on Benjamin Moore’s Facebook Page. The comments were not very kind but that’s ok, I like my bedroom and so does my husband. Plus it did receive way more likes than negative comments and was shared 60 times. The best part today though was all the love and support from friends, family and bloggers! They made my day!
I realize the only pics of our bedroom are of the stenciled wall so for those who think the entire room is stenciled, it’s not. Back in September I changed up a few things and grabbed a few shots with the camera. This long wall was a problem, I really didn’t know what to do with it. I scooped up this dresser free from Craigslist and painted the drawers for some contrast but I didn’t love it on this big wall.
I changed out the desk from our closet with the dresser, added a sunburst mirror and the green chair, voila, instantly better!
Here’s a little before shot from when we were surviving in this room.
Still on the hunt for a bedskirt, well ok, the truth is I don’t want to spend $50 on a bedskirt. I’m cheap! Another before for you cause I”m nice like that.
Thank goodness for white trim and new doors!
This is my keeping it real photo for you, do you like the vent hanging down from the bathroom ceiling? Hubby fixed that, I am too lazy to take another picture. Next up is to work on the closet, it needs some help!
And the final before and after:
There you go! Progress! Hoping to get started on the master bathroom soon as well but we also have hubby’s office in the works and he wants to build a bookcase wall. I’m also trying to finish up two girls bedrooms and painting in the basement. The bedroom color is Hale Navy by Benjamin Moore and the nightstands are painted Rhubarb by Benjamin Moore.
Thanks for all your support and comments while I was gone, not knowing if I”d be back or not! I’ve definitely figured out a few things and I’ll be back again soon!
