Part 2- PAINT
There are things that are easy and cost effective to update, such as lighting (part 1), hardware (part 3) and...
PAINT- can be as easy as a refresh of a similar color (or even the same color), doing a feature wall, or a new, BOLD color. For today I will be focusing on walls, brick, and paneling. Cabinets will be for another post!
Below is my own master bedroom. I'll admit, it's crazy that I waited 6 years in our new construction home to do something in my own bedroom, but if you're a mom you know all too well how you put others first. I finally got to a point where I had to do something.
I set a budget for a few things to purchase like my first floor mirror (how did I live without one?), floating shelves for my books, a new light, table lamps, and sheets. I was gifted an amazing original art piece I loved and knew black was the perfect color for the backdrop of a piece of art I adore, so I went to purchase black paint to add a feature wall. I wanted to do the entire room, but the person who shares the room with me (my husband James) vetoed that idea.
