Talk About a Master Upgrade

Guys. I did it again.  But this time, I SWEAR to you, it's justified.

I repainted my master bedroom.

I know this seems to be the theme lately- repainting rooms that are already painted.  But this room specifically was painted the first time to just have some sort of color on the walls.  Remember, I didn't even sleep in this room the entire first year I owned the house.  Then I bought a mattress and eventually moved my stuff into the room.  So I quickly grabbed a gallon of paint, choosing the same color that I used downstairs in the dining room and up the stairs. It was also the color that I just painted over in the back spare room.

I mean, don't get me wrong, I love that color.  It reminds me of Bailey's Irish Cream.  And you KNOW how much I luuuuuurv me some Bailey's.  Yum.  But in my bedroom it just was far too boring.  Especially since I have been adding tons of color to the upstairs.  So once I painted the back spare room that dark charcoal, I instantly knew that was the color that I was going to go with for my bedroom as well.  I love moody colors for bedrooms and this is the perfect stormy, cloudy day color.  I'm just pissed that it took me this damn long to do it.  Ugh.  Cuz it's beautiful!

Hot Toddy has finally started to realize that there is a constant stream of projects going on in my house.  I mean, there is a friggin dresser in the middle of my kitchen right now.  And it may have been in there for a couple of weeks.  Oops.  He just goes with the flow though.  Actually, he's usually asking what we are doing next.  So I'm pretty sure he enjoys the chaos.  In fact, he's already scheduled my time in the garage this weekend.  I'm hoping to get a couple of things done in there so it's great that he wants to do them as well.

Okay, back to the bedroom.  Here she was all blah and boring before.


And soon it looked like this.
