I AM SOOOOO EXCITED!!! Our bedroom is DONE being painted & I am completely obsessed! I never loved our bedroom when we moved in, but it had good bones & lots of potential. You can read the start to the makeover HERE & why it's taken us almost 2 years to get a move on in here. There are also all the before photos too!
It's been a wild ride with this bedroom. This was the first major project we've taken on since having Dominic & projects tend to go a little slower when you add a baby into the mix, but that's OK! We have also had some busy weekends so it's been about a month to get this all done.
We used Behr Silent White to cover up the brown walls & we only needed 2 coats. I'm telling you, Behr is great with the built in primer because I don't have time to be priming anything beforehand. However, if you follow along with me on Instagram (HERE) & you saw my stories, we had some leftover Silent White paint from other projects so we started with that can.& got about 2 walls done with 2 coats of paint. We went to Home Depot & got another can & started painting the largest wall in the room. When the paint had dried we noticed it did not match the previously painted walls. We brought the paint back to Home Depot to see if they could do anything for us & they were SUPER helpful! They gave us a new gallon of paint & said that there was no tint added to the previous gallon of paint (FACEPALM). They didn't question us or make us feel bad at all, it was so easy & simple. Such great customer service!!
Another project we did in here was take down the shutter doors that closed off John Paul's closet. They were just big & bulky & BROWN. I did not have it in me to paint them so I decided to take them down & put up a big drop cloth curtain as the door. You can read all about how to make drop cloth curtains HERE. For this curtain, I used a 9x12 drop cloth instead because I needed it to be longer to cover the whole doorway. I also did not want 2 because I wanted it to stay closed all the time & not have a gap. I love that it kind of looks like a backdrop for our bed.
We also rearranged the room. This room is very long & narrow so it's a little difficult to figure out the furniture layout. We went with this way for now so that we could have a little sitting area in front of the TV. The old layout was how the previous owners had the room set up, but we didn't like that you basically walked in the room & right into the bed. This way is a little unconventional as there is no wall anchoring the bed, but I kind of like it!
We still have some things I would like to eventually do. Possibly painting our furniture, even though I know that will be a HUGE undertaking, but I don't love the dark wood. For now it works & I actually don't mind it now that the walls are lighter. I would love new furniture, however that is not in the budget right now. I also want to do a little more decorating, but I am enjoying the simplicity of this room for now. Patience, Lindsay, patience!
