before/after: new room!











With the back room still languishing in a not-quite-complete coat of primer, it's time again to visit a room that has successfully gone from 'before' to 'after'. This is the master bedroom. Not too much had to be done to it, actually. It's amazing what paint can do...especially painting the trim white. The dimensions of the room are a little funny so that you have to squeeze around the bed to get to the closet and the other half of the room, but we tried it every which way and this is what works best. You can't see it, but I found a Shabby Chic rug at Target that nicely complements what's going on in the bedding and valances. So, this is done...hooray! Onward and upward, and time to get back to work.

that is the perfect shade of cream on your walls, do you know the color? i am looking for the perfect shade of cream for some of my own walls.

i got a chuckle, i have the same wicker armoire, pier one, no? :)

what a difference you made. that room looks so comfy and pretty. i like your furniture placement too, it makes the room look a lot bigger.

The paint is "Mystic Beige" by B. Moore. It kind of looks like "flesh" in real life.

Yes...the armoire is indeed Pier 1! Holding up well and small enough to fit where I crammed it...so I love it!
