It’s days like these that I realize how blessed I am.
Two of my aunties came over and spent the night. In just over 24 hours, with the help of my mom who was here most of that time, they organized our study (aka “clutter room”), organized/ cleaned our dining room, took off the wallpaper border (on top and bottom of the walls) in the guest bedroom, and painted, cleaned, organized, and put back together the master bedroom.
The four of us ladies spent a few hours agonizing over what color to paint the master bedroom. It came down to two colors, so we bought samples of each and painted 8.5″ x 11″ pieces of paper and held the papers up at various places throughout the room. Then we thought we should mix the colors and tried our own homemade sample of that. At the end, the lighter of the two (or three) shades won: Benjamin Moore’s heirloom.
So…. drumroll… the “after” photos:
Below is a picture of the dresser with the lights on. Look how warm the pink is!
Same photo with the lights off– maybe a minute difference in time– the pink has totally changed colors and is now much calmer.
Love this little corner! Can’t wait to decorate it with wall art, window dressings, etc.
I just snapped this a few minutes ago: the sunset matches the walls PERFECTLY.
This was only one coat of paint but frankly I think it looks great! Love watching the sunsets even more now 🙂

Looks great! Very warm and cozy! 🙂
It is! It’s warm without being too warm… honestly the perfect color. 🙂
Lovely! I never would have thought of pink but it is perfect.
It is definitely out of the box, that’s for sure! I think that’s why I like it so much though. Hopefully David will still like it once the baby’s born… I hear the husbands lose a lot of testosterone when their wives are pregnant (to be more gentle around the pregnant wife and the baby) and eventually it goes back to normal. Praying once he’s back to “normal” he won’t insist on repainting!
Hilarious! I don’t think it’s un-masculine. And I bet he will be too exhausted post baby to care 😉
