Remember this post from last May? It's ok if you don't. I almost forgot about it. To refresh your memory, we were trying to pick out the perfect navy for our master bedroom and I had it narrowed down to these three.
I had the swatches up on our walls for weeks and then finally took them down when they started to gather dust. Fast forward to January and we were back in the home improvement mode and pulled out the swatches again. We decided on Swatch #3 but it's actually called Newburyport Blue (Benjamin Moore) -I cannot get it right! It was the perfect middle ground between the two other blues hues.
Here's the color we had, it's Peanut Shell by Benjamin Moore. To see our bedroom transformation up to this point, click here (really, check out the stencil that came with the house!). I loved the color but I was ready for something new.
I didn't have much time to take "before" shots. We moved the big furniture to the center of the room and took out as much of the other furniture as we could.
We tried Home Depot's Behr Marquee paint this time and color matched it. Before I knew it, the cut-in paint was going up! He's fast!
It was a big, bold change!
as it was drying...
This is what I saw when I came up the stairs. Wow!
The old furniture looked great against the new blue background.
But I wasn't as crazy about the curtains, they looked a little dingy (bad photo).
I found some inexpensive panels at Home Goods that were just what I was looking for to brighten up the room.
The only other new purchases were the mirror over the bed and the faux sheepskin at the foot of the bed (also found at Home Goods).
It feels like a whole new room.
I painted the night stands but that's a story for another post.
So what do you think of my blue-tiful room?
Let's keep in touch!
