It’s sad that took me almost a week after I finished painting in my bedroom to get enough natural light to take a good picture of the results! But the rain clouds finally parted and now I can share with you how my weekend project turned out:
Painting the wall behind my bed was so gratifying. $14 worth of paint, one Saturday of work, and it totally transformed the room. I love the color; it’s called Poppyseed, and looks just like it sounds… a near black hue with hints of navy blue.
Here is what the room looked like before, major blah:
And for fun… one more stellar “after”:
Checking one project off the list of course means I’m just thinking about I want to do next… lamp upgrades, a new duvet, and perhaps some art above the bed? I’m never finished!
I’m never finished, either… it drives my husband nuts. 🙂
The paint looks GREAT! A perfect hue and I think it makes a total difference in the room. I wouldn’t hang anything above the bed — I think the sloping ceiling could make it feel cramped? But then again, it’s your room, so do what makes you happy!
Love your blog. Nice work!
Oh what a perfect color!! The new paint totally makes the whole room- I love this!
Aw thanks for the nice comments ladies!
It totally makes the room! Love the navy undertone in the color… it looks so cozy now!
OMG! It looks so good, It makes the whole room look so much different – and way to be brave using such a Dark color, because it turned out fantastic.
I think it would look fantastic with a sunburst mirror above the bed!
Love that color (and the name!) and have the same lamp on my bedside table!
That color looks great! I love it!
I totally agree with Taz, that would look so chic!
Looks awesome, so inspiring! Throw a red throw pillow/blanket in there!
That is a great transformation! I love the color, It really makes the space 100% more cozy and stylin!
oh kate – well done! i have a similar project in scope… but sadly i feel like it will take forever to get done. i am aiming for before christmas, we’ll see! and no, of course, design work is never done! keep posting you beautiful little blogger you! 🙂
What a delightful do-over! Dramatic difference, LOVE IT! I love before and afters!
