I finally recovered from the plague and was able to paint our master bedroom with Brad’s assistance over the weekend. We’re wild and crazy thirty-somethings. Let me tell you.
I feel like I should also add that I’m doing this room in reverse order of how you’re supposed to execute a room makeover. The main reason why I’m going rogue is that we’re borrowing my parents’ ladder because our ladder isn’t tall enough. So please don’t follow my lead on this one.
While the majority of you voted for Sherwin Williams Comfort Gray, Sherwin Williams Sea Salt was my winner because I felt more comfortable with it. I just kept thinking Comfort Gray would be too dark.
When it comes to painting rooms in our house, I always go with flat paint because it minimizes the texture on our walls. (You can read more of my tips on painting textured walls here.) And as you can see in the photo below, it also makes the color appear slightly darker. So I think the Comfort Gray would’ve been too dark for me.
My friends at Sherwin-Williams hooked me up with two gallons from their Emerald paint line, which is an acrylic latex paint and primer. Oh boy, did I love working with this paint. One coat is all it took. And the interior flat has excellent washability.
Note: I didn’t get on the ladder like that, it’s partially collapsed so we could get around it.
To review, here’s what the bedroom looked like before.
And here’s what it looks like now.
I think the color looks great with our white trim and bedding, cream headboard, carpet, and our dark wood nightstands and dresser.
I’m obviously going to have to change the decorative accents in the room.
Like I said, new accents are in order. But doesn’t the dresser look good with the Sea Salt walls?
I’m still debating on what accent colors I want to use, so leave any suggestions below.
At this point, I need to get new curtains, curtain rod (I’m raising that baby up higher), lamps, accent pillows, wall art, and some decorative accents.
I like how airy and serene the new wall color looks with our cream headboard and white bedding.
While we had the bedroom torn apart, Brad also went through and changed out all of the electrical outlets and switches from the dated almond color to crisp white. Here’s a tutorial on how to do that in case you’re interested.
FYI, our duvet cover set can be found HERE.
So, what do you think of the color?
