Bedroom Makeover and a Giveaway

I have long said our master bedroom is my least favorite room in the house.  I just have never done much to it.  I wanted to do the rest of the house first. 

This is what it looks like. It's not horrible.  Just kind of boring and blah.  I bought the furniture back when I was single, and it's just not my favorite anymore, but we don't need to buy new.

This is looking at the other side of the room.  The armoire holds our TV.  See? Just kind of boring?

So I got the chance to do a makeover with BlogHer and Sherwin-Williams, and I JUMPED on it!!! At first I thought I would just go a little darker brown so I didn't have to paint the ceiling, and then I decided to really go for it and make a change!!!

I'm making other changes as well.  I'm looking for something different to go over the bed.  I'm also hoping to change up the bedding a little, and I'm going to try and be EXTREMELY brave and paint our furniture!!!

Sherwin-Williams has all of these great color selection tools that help you pick new colors.  You can use the free Color Snap® app for your smartphone and take pictures, and it finds a paint color in an image and helps you pick a new color.  SOOOOOO easy!!!!!!

I also tried out the Color Visualizer Tool, which is amazing.  It actually puts the color on a picture to help you imagine how it will look.  I loved trying out different colors.  It can go shades darker or lighter, and you can keep looking until you find one you like.

The next thing I did was get on Pinterest and on a few of my favorite blogs, and look at Sherwin-Williams paint colors in rooms.  I LOVED this color in my friend Shelli's bedroom and think it will be the perfect shade to really lighten up our room!  She used Comfort Gray.  I put the Comfort Gray in the Color Visualizer and loved how it looked!

I also found this on Pinterest.  This is the perfect color for our furniture.  I've never painted anything, so I'm a little worried but excited.

I went to my local Sherwin-Williams store, and they were EXTREMELY nice and helpful. I told them the colors I had picked out.  I ended up picking Tinscape for my furniture color. It's a light gray.  They helped me figure out how much paint I needed, and what kind would work best.  They also gave me great advice on tools to use and helpful hints. I told them I had never painted, and they were so nice and made it very easy! 

I'm hoping to create a little haven in our bedroom.  I would love to escape to our bedroom at night and just feel peaceful and comfortable.  It's the one place we can enjoy without toddlers! :-)

Stay tuned...........
