My entire body is sore and I’m still a bit high on paint fumes. You know what that means… yesterday was the day I was waiting for – Paintapalooza!
I took off work for this entire week and my mom watched baby Jack for the day, so I went all buck-wild, turned on my iPod “party mix” and painted all day long. Seriously. All. Day. Long.
I’m super happy with the results though and can’t wait to share!
I first talked about my bedroom makeover here with my very first mood board. As always, once I started putting things together a few things changed from what I thought I wanted.
Let’s let the pictures tell the story:
Okay, now time for the fun pictures. My “after” shots of our “new” bedroom. I painted the whole room with two gallons of Behr paint in a color called “Skipper.”
I already walked you through how I dyed my sheets, but here are a couple little tweaks I did between the “before” and “after” pictures:
There you go — I was finally able to do my master bedroom update almost exactly 10 months after we moved in. I’m loving the changes, especially the fact that I was able to reuse all my old stuff and just add in a few more things!
While I was in my painting frenzy I also FINALLY got to the ugly green bathroom. So as soon as my picture arrives in the mail I will post on that room too. Hope you’re having a happy Thanksgiving week and not working too hard!

I love the wall color! We are feeling the need for some real wall color… Our whole house is so “neutral”… Which is the nice way of saying we’re color indecisive.
Thank you! I’m in loooove with the blue walls. I’m kind of at the point where I just stand in the doorway and smile at the room. Don’t be color indecisive — you can always paint over something if you hate it! My last kitchen was three different colors in the 9 years I lived in my townhouse. =)
oh my! great job! i love what you did!!! wanna do mine next? ahhhh i still have stuff in card board boxes drives me crazy cuz i have no room >.<
I love the chair as a nightstand–so clever! No drawers = no junk drawers!
Thanks! Totally was inspired by Young House Love’s book. You should pick it up, it’s AWESOME and I’m kind of obsessed with it…
I will look for it!
Great new bedroom! Blue is my favorite color so I cannot say this isn’t beautiful, because it is! I love the quilt that you made to cover your headboard, too! The print is lovely! 🙂
Thanks for sharing.
