Bedroom Update

On Sunday I started painting the trim and wood paneled wall in our bedroom.  (You can read about my thought process for this HERE.)  One coat of primer and two coats of paint later and it's looking better!  I'm loving how the white paint makes the room seem so much brighter already.  I've only done the wall with the headboard, so I still need to do the rest of the trim in the room.  It still needs one more coat of paint (that dark wood is hard to cover), but here's a little sneak peak:

I want to find a way to hide those dark cords from the lamps that are attached to the headboard.  I'm going to keep the bedroom door and closet doors dark for now and see how I like it.  I can't wait to finish painting (hopefully this weekend) and show you all the final result!


  1. the white paint makes such a great difference!!

  2. The white makes a huge difference! So much more brighter and lighter!

  3. The light color looks soooo much better! I'm so excited to see the final product!

  4. I have to agree with everyone, and say the white makes such a bright impact. Looking good so far!! I've seen cord covers before, I don't know where…. but I did find this cute post for you http://www.brit.co/cord-covers/
    All the best~

  5. The white looks awesome!! More spacious looking!
