Sherwin Williams Rain

It’s Like Rain!

Last week I shared with you the chaos that our master bedroom was undergoing. Originally, we planned to be completely through painting and ready to blog about it at the beginning of the week. But things Olympics happen. Seriously has anybody else had trouble not watching the Olympics every night? Even if you only want to watch one event NBC strings you along so that four hours later you find yourself still glued to the TV and even shedding a tear as the medalist sings along to the national anthem. Way to go #FabFive!

Anyway, somewhere in the midst of the 2012 Olympic Games (commercial breaks and beach volleyball mainly) I found time to finish the trim and give our doors a new coat of paint. And now… because it’s probably a miracle if you’re still reading this without skipping to the pictures first here is what our bedroom looks like!

Sherwin Williams Rain

I love it! To clue you in on my excitement, I probably am as excited about our new room as a little kid is on Christmas morning. I mean to go from this…

to this…

Sherwin Williams Rain

is such a refreshing change.

The paint color is Sherwin Williams Rain.

FYI: Every time I think about this color, I hear this in my head.

Talk about a Flash Back Friday.

The soft blue compliments the reds found in the wood of the furniture. The whole room feels so much larger and has such a calming atmosphere now. Every time I walk in the room I feel like I am walking into a completely different space. It’s amazing what a little paint will do!

Ok, so at this point you are probably thinking, “Are there any more pictures?” Well you see I got so picture happy that I didn’t have time to edit all the pictures in time for today’s post. I’ll be back early next week for the complete room reveal as well as a few other changes we made to the room.

In the meantime, below is the inspiration picture I pinned sometime last year.

I loved the light color of the paint. When ML and I selected a color we decided to go with a color that had the same tonal value but was more blue instead of green. We both agree that we made the right decision. It wouldn’t have been as much fun to go from dark green to light green walls.

It’s nice to finally have all the painting supplies put away and get to enjoy our newish room. Now all I need is a good rainy Saturday so that I can sleep in and enjoy the Rain!

Has anybody else had trouble completing any DIY projects, housework, or anything else because of the Olympics? Was anybody else a fan of Alanis Morissette back in the 90’s?

Prepping for the Rain

Ok, I’ll try to make to make this quick… I really need a nap.

Master bedroom

Remember back in the Spring when I bought this accent pillow for the master bedroom? In that same post I mentioned that we bought paint for our room back in July of 2011 and still had not gotten around to paining the walls. Well we finally got around to it this past weekend.

I would love to show you completed photos of the room and let you see how beautiful it is but it’s not there yet. Right now our furniture is still in this formation.

Saturday we spackled and primed the walls.

We used leftover paint from our dining room as our primer. It’s a light gray color so it was perfect for covering up the darker green walls.

The primer is really close to our main color in shade and has the same blue undertones as our paint color. This was one of the reasons we decided to use it as our primer.

Here you can see the walls primed and a sample of our final color we chose hanging up. There isn’t a lot of difference in tonal value but a subtle shift in color.

Sunday we painted the walls Sherwin Williams Rain and fell in love with it! We managed to get the final coat painted in around three hours (the length of Noah’s afternoon nap).

It looks really blue in the picture above because this was taken in the morning light which really brings out the color in it.

The trim is what is holding us back from finishing and being able to show you the final pictures.

 

We are having to repaint it because whoever painted the room before us (twice) did a terrible job and got paint all over the trim. Not like a dab here or a dab there but a huge swipe here and another one there. So hopefully we can get the trim knocked out one night this week and then I’ll be back to share it with you.

Now onto my much needed nap. You see all this painting is finally getting to me and I sort of veered off of my migraine prevention diet this past weekend.

 

One of the things I splurged on was this amazing Nutella Marshmallow Shake from Flip Burger Boutique Saturday night where we went to celebrate Michael Luke’s birthday. It was amazing but I paying for it all now with a minor annoying headache. Hopefully, this nap will help.

Have you tackled any painting projects lately? Or maybe just created chaos in your house? Sometimes I feel like I am tornado going through our house. It doesn’t take much for me to make a mess.

Just for fun… here’s a picture of our little helper while we were painting.

Hard worker isn’t she?
