Painting the Master Bedroom

Sometimes I get amazed at how slow we are to get things done.  Really I think what it is is that we dearly love the talking it over process so much that we hate for it to end once we do whatever we’re talking over! <—Hope that made sense!

But finally we’re ready to paint the master bedroom.  Most of the other rooms in the house that we’ve painted have gone from white to a bold color like barely gray or lightest brown.  But this time we’re really stepping outside our comfort zone with an actual bold paint color.



I’m feeling good about it though because the paint companies have gotten so smart and now sell little sample bottles of paint.  The color I chose is Glidden Spiced Gingerbread and for three dollars we got enough paint to cover about a two foot square.  Took quite a little bit to get it painted though because we used the half inch paintbrush that came in the bottle.  Smile



We did the swatch on the wall on Monday night and have loved it more each day, so we figure it’s a go.  Bright and early tomorrow we plan to get up and paint the day away!

That is such a warm, rich color. I think you will love it! We need to paint our master bedroom and bath, but that will have to wait until after the first of the year. A fresh coat of paint does wonders for a room, doesn't it? Good luck painting tomorrow. Love & blessings from NC!

That is a bold color ... but I like it! It's warm and not at all overpowering. Hope you'll show the completely finished room. ;-)

Love the color. Our rooms are different colors also.

I didn't know Glidden had a paint tester. ooops I guess you can tell, it has been a while since we've painted... your color looks pretty and perfect for this time of year!
