The Slowest Makeover of All Time

Tuesday, February 5, 2013

I know it's been forever and a day since I even mentioned any progress on our master bedroom makeover but there has been a little. I think we left off last summer (eek!) when I shared our updated bedding and I figured it was about time to show you the updated paint job as well as the furniture update.

First things first, the paint. I took forever and a day to pick out a paint color. I wanted it to be a neutral color (I'm not brave enough for bold colored walls) but yet a little different than the other colors in our house. I finally settled on a Sherwin Williams color called Versatile Gray. I feel like that is the perfect description of the color. It's warm and cool at the same time and doesn't seem to have any glaring blue or green undertones that are so common with grey paint colors.

Next update is regarding the dresser and nightstand situation (pretend you didn't see the nightstands in the pictures above). Our original plan after getting the new bed was to find some different coordinating pieces to finish out the room. This plan didn't last very long. We tried looking around at local furniture stores and looking for pieces on craigslist but we just weren't able to find anything to suit our needs. When it came down to it we liked the Hemnes six-drawer dresser the best out of anything we'd seen so in July when Ikea had a sale on Hemnes furniture we picked it up.

We ended up getting the matching nightstands too. I had thought about getting the white shade for the nightstands but Loren wasn't into it and I think getting the same dark brown/black color was the right choice.

That's the long overdue update with our bedroom. So far we've been liking the furniture, I especially like the nightstands. I was previously using a hand-me-down end table so I love having drawers! The new year has given me a little giddy-up to get busy on finishing up the bedroom so I'll be back with more updates soon!
