When we were registering for our wedding gifts we registered for black sheets with a beautiful grey comforter. Well we got the sheets but not the comforter. I was clueless when it came time to paint. Unfortunately I don't have a before picture because this was pre-blog. I honestly can't even tell you what color it was before. W says it was a dark brown so we'll go with that. Black sheets with a dark brown wall weren't going to cut it for me so we came up with a grey/black/white theme. I also told W that I wanted to paint stripes on the wall that has the bed and I believe his reaction was, "you want to do what?" I had it all planned out in my head, it was just getting it from my head to the wall! Sometimes that doesn't work so well... I must say that I do love our master bedroom but I also know that this isn't a room that everyone will love! (And I am cool with that, you know why? Because both W and I do love it!)
There are 3 shades of grey in the room and we started off painting the entire room the medium color. So 3 of the 4 walls are painted the color pictured above. When we first started painting it I had my sister here helping out (while W was at work) and I absolutely HATED it. I swore up and down that it looked brown and she tried to reassure me that it was indeed grey . I don't know where I got that idea but I called the hubs and wanted change it... like tomorrow. He tends to talk me out of doing crazy things like that and suggested that I just finish and see how I liked it the next day. Well I guess you could say that it grew on me. Sometimes you really do have to just live with something for a little while!
Now for the part you've all been waiting for... the STRIPES!!
Check out the beautiful crown molding.
