Master Bedroom Refresh

As per my 30 before 30 list, and several other mentions on this blog, I've been wanting to repaint our Master Bedroom for some time. At first, I was a big fan of our rich, aubergine accent wall, but then I was just kind of over it. Mr. Fix-It thought I was crazy to want to "re-do" a room already, but really, we're coming up on 3 years in our condo. It was time for a change.

In case you forgot what the "before" looked like:



It's actually a pretty big change! And I loooooove it.
On Saturday morning we emptied the contents of our bedroom into the guest room. That was a joy.

I proposed pushing the bed to the middle of the room. Mr. Fix-It always likes to "do things right", so we dismantled it. We really know how to have fun around here.

Then out came the painter's tape. We thoroughly taped the room.


And after a couple hours of rollers and touch-ups and a second coat of paint, we had ourselves a new bedroom!





What do you think? Also, if you want to see more before and after pics from our condo go here!
