Britt’s Master Bedroom Update

Pinterest

If you’ve noticed a long absence from the blog, it’s probably because Brooke and I have both been at a home improvement store. Seriously, we live there now. Between her fixer upper and a few summer projects I wanted to get done this summer, we’ve been getting our hands dirty. No one tells you that any house project is a lot harder than they make it look on TV. Unfortunately Chip and Jo Jo did not show up to magically transform my master bedroom in a quick 30 minutes, but I think it still turned out pretty well, although it could definitely use some ship lap :) . The main change was paint. Our entire house is painted in the same taupe-ish hue. I honestly don’t mind it that much because I’m just happy to have a house (and mostly a garage), but paint is a pretty simple change. After fine-tuning my painting skills at Brooke and Parker’s house – sorry about the guest bed closet- I decided to paint our master bedroom. I wanted the room to be brighter and lighter, but was set on not doing plain white. I settled on Sherwin-William’s 7070 Site White, which SOUNDS white, but is definitely a very light gray with a sky blue hue. I used their Emerald Interior line because the paint already has primer in it, which meant I only had to do two coats of paint on the wall instead of three. I split the painting in two days to let the paint fully dry. I love how it turned out and now maybe want to tackle the rest of the house… master bed 6 master bed 3 master bed 4 master bed 5

(totally spaced the inside of our shutters – how in the heck do i get in there? I’m seriously contemplating using one of my tiny makeup brushes so I don’t screw up too badly) DSC_0071 I really love these lamps I found from Target. I originally fell in love with a verrry similar looking lamp from West Elm, but these were $150 cheaper! I’m on the hunt for big, fluffy white pillows for our bed. I think they will offset the rest of the pillows nicely. Where do you find them? Any and all interior decorating advice welcomed!
