Hello friends! I’m back on the blog today to share a recent update to my bedroom.
Drumroll please…I painted an accent wall!
First, a little backstory: when I purchased the paint for my bathroom and powder room makeovers back before I had even moved in, I wayyy overestimated what I needed and bought a full gallon. I used about half of that (and I even painted the inside of my coat closet too!). And over the past year or so I have toyed with the idea of adding an accent wall behind my bed. Conveniently enough it just so happens that the leftover paint I’ve been saving is one of the colors in my bedroom color scheme. No brainer, right? So, I finally pulled the trigger, and I’m loving it! And I still have a lot of paint left haha…
I first shared the full Bedroom reveal back in February (if you missed it, you can check it out HERE). I still have a couple of design projects to do, but until then, are you ready to see the headboard wall before and after?
Nothing wrong with the room captured in this before shot, but it was just all very even keeled and not a whole lot of contrast between the wall and the headboard, and the nightstands and the picture frames and the lamp! Oh my!
Some progress shots.. normal painting, nothing fancy to see here.
Ta da! Check out that contrast, ooh la la!
I love how crisp the white looks against the blue wall.
And doesn’t the headboard pop so much more?
I’m loving the effect! What do you think?
