This past weekend, John was away at a fishing trip with my dad and my sister's boyfriend, so I was able to concentrate a bit on some things around the house. After a round of dishes and laundry, I went to my mom's house to work on putting my wedding invitations together (pictures of those to come in a few weeks!). When John got back on Saturday, we decided that we would dedicate Sunday and the following week to working on the house. So on Sunday morning, I got up bright and early to start bringing Tidewater to the bedroom! (Tidewater is the name of our paint....see that post here)
As I was prepping the room, I thought to take a quick snapshot of the before since I hadn't showed it yet. Sorry for the poor quality. I'm apparently terrible at taking room photos (womp womp!)
Yeah. That's sad. What else is sad is that this is actually pretty true-to-life of what it would normally look like. See why I was so sad about my bedroom?!?
After pushing all the furniture into the middle of the room, I got my paint on. Yep, I was rockin it out.
Two coats later, the bedroom was magically turned to THIS:
Again, my photos aren't spectacular here. I expect more from myself but this was taken right before work this morning so let's just go with it.
And, just for visualization purposes.....here's a little photoshop magic of what I am actually envisioning in this room. See? It'll look better as we go. Promise.
Stay tuned. We painted another room in the house and I can't wait to share the transformation!!
