Painting...Round 2

A while ago, I gave you guys a sneak peak at our master.  Then I gave you a mini-update of it on Friday.  As you saw, it was...and still is, very far from masterful.

Since these pictures were taken, a couple things have changed {but unfortunately, no where near enough to call our room complete haaaaa}.




Since then, we:
- sold our old bedroom set on Craigslist and replaced it with a mid-century modern set we Craiglisted and painted
- bought a rug for the living room, but didn't like it there, so it now lives in the bedroom {happy accident}
- re-arranged our furniture layout to suit our new-to-us furniture better
- re-painted the whole room because the accent wall was now the wrong wall {thanks to our re-arranging} and I was SUPER antsy to get rid of the pretty-but-not-the-look-I-was-going-for tan-ish walls

I started the painting on a Friday night after finishing up our barn door, and began by covering our former accent wall in Glidden's Pebble Grey.  I finished that wall before I was forced to call it quits so my hubby could rest up for work the next day.  {Boooo busy season and working Saturdays!}

When I opened my eyes in the morning, I was pleased to see that I loveddddd the new color.  It was perfect.  Darker, a little more moody...and definitely made our white trim and dark floors pop.



I couldn't wait to get started on the rest of the room.  The hubs told me there was no way I could finish the whole room in one day.  HA!  That's what he thought.

With the assistance of my iPod blasting and some March Madness commentary, I had our bedroom one-coated by the time the afternoon rolled around.  {And thank the Good Lord, the room only needed one coat!}

I started by cutting all the grey walls in... 



...then I rolled them all.  Then I cut the green wall in, and rolled that.  {I was so focused at this point that I forgot to take progress pictures.}  So here are two finished pictures.  And when I say finished...I obviously mean the painting...not the disaster that we call our bedroom. ;)




I'm so pleased with the new color!  I know it isn't a dramatic change, but I'm in love!  {And don't mind the splotchy color.  The walls were still semi-wet when I took these pictures, but it dried nice and even!}

Also, I'm sure you caught a glimpse of our newly painted furniture in this post.  At that point everything was severely lacking some hardware.  Hopefully I'll get a post up to show you their finished-ness sometime soon! :)
