Fresh Coat of Paint

Our bedroom is finally finished being painted! It took way longer than I had planned, mostly because we did it the middle of our first IUI cycle and partly because I hate painting and took a lot of breaks. Okay so maybe it was more for the hatred of painting that I took so long...

But it is finally done and I am happy to say that it looks marvelous. I'm really loving the colours we chose and I think they go super well with our current decor.

The grey of the wall ties in nicely with the grey in our new duvet cover. I chose them to work nicely together but it's still nice to see that I was right.

The blue accent wall stands out nicely and adds the perfect amount of colour to the room. I am excited to start decorating and adding little touches to the room, but I have to wait until our dresser is built and we know where everything will be going.

The room is feeling a little bare now that it's missing a bunch of its furniture, but it is functional and we are happy to be sleeping in there again. Even if our clothes are still spread out on the futon in the other room.

I hope you guys are all having a good week and I will post room updates as I have them.

Anyone else painting recently? Or love painting so much they are willing to come help me paint our extra room?


  1. Ooooohhhhh! Looks great Jennie! Looking forward to seeing your final decorative touches. :)

  2. It makes me smile to look at it :)
    Even though you don't always think you are, Im here to tell you that you are very good at getting an idea and seeing it come to fruition. It wasnt long ago that discussed your desire to build furniture and paint your room, and look at you go! :)

  3. the gray is beautiful with the comforter/duvet!! (I actually love painting... weirdo, right? I don't mind the taping, I LOVE the edging with the brush - I do strongly dislike the rolling. lol)

  4. I love the gray! I'll come help you paint if you come and help me paint. :)

  5. Jackie - It could still be a while for those final decorative touches... we're hoping by the end of 2015 the room will be done!

    Kristy - I'm glad that my newly painted room can make you smile. And thank you for your compliment about me getting stuff done. :)

    Kate - I hate the taping and the edging! You should come and help me paint, I feel like we would make a good team.

    KKLamb10 - Hmm... I'm hoping to get out of the painting all together. ;)
