Master Bedroom Makeover-Step 1 Paint

After a gazillion paint chips and way too many paint samples purchased and dabbed on the walls this is the color we finally decided on.  It is a Martha Stewart color but since her paint does not come in sateen (only eggshell, flat, semi-gloss, gloss) I purchased it in the Behr brand.  We have used Behr before and like it and when we hired professional painters they were surprised to find that they liked it too.

I made many trips to town to pick up paint chips, purchase paint samples chosen from the paint chip viewing, and then last night (deadline for choosing) the Honey said "You chose".  We were pretty much burned out by then.  This is hard work you know.  The samples never looked like what we expected once we put them on the wall. 

So after breakfast this morning we get started preping and on to painting.  Wish us luck!

P.S. I changed the blog look because while I like the previous look it took too darn long to load.  I was unhappy with the wait I can only imagine anyone else would have lost their desire to view this blog during the wait too. 


  1. War Eagle!!!! Great game, but it started out a little shakey.
    I stayed home with Mason and let Alex have my ticket. She graduated from Auburn and enjoys going with her dad so much. Of course, I watched it on t.v. and I'm sure the neighbors thought I was over here dying!

    I am going through the same thing with the paint for our den -kitchen area. I have already painted it once (sneaked and did it when Al was out of town!!!) Of course, he isn't fond of it, so here I am again choosing paint colors! :( I like your color.

  2. I hope the painting goes effortlessly! You chose a pretty color, it looks like melon. I'm sure it will look nice in your bedroom.

    BTW--I really like the new blog look! The butterflies had me sold!

  3. I painted half my kitchen that color this year... I love it!


Thank you for your comments. It is always so nice to hear from you :)
