We wanted a change, so we decided to paint our bedroom.
Here was what the prior owners did to the place. Tan is a great color, but with our white bedframe and white coverlet (and white trim and white closet and white doors) it was a bit too... bland.
So, we taped everything off with Frog tape (GREAT! Except on textured surfaces) and set to work...
And voila! A dark slate gray. It's a great color--- warm in the evening, cheery in the morning. We also put up long curtains, but not too heavy. Airy.
The closets and moldings also got taped off....
And paint and curtains added. I like that the moldings and trimwork now pop against the color, rather than blending in with the background paint.
There's a lot more to show with other projects (to come in posts soon), but, finally, here is behind the bed.
You can hopefully see what I mean with the lightness of the wall color (but yet it's dark).
We will be adding pops of color, and I like that the gray color is very complimentary to a lot of different color additions. I'm very happy with it!
