Painting the Master bedroom

Hey friends, It’s been awhile since I’ve posted on the blog. We moved into a new home in January and between selling our previous home and the holidays it was pretty insane around here.

We bought a mid 70’s side split that had some renos done to it previously. I’m looking forward to sharing small DIY’s and weekend projects with you all. 🙂

One of the first things we did was paint the Master bedroom! It had dark grey paint and an accent wall with black and silver stripped wall paper. To each their own but it wasn’t my thing.  So my 8 year and daughter and I stripped it off in about 30 mins using a combo of water and Fabric softner and a wall paper scorer like this one.


I wanted something calming and relaxing to wake up to and retreat to every night.  After bringing home a few different paint options I decided to paint the room in Woodlawn Blue (HC – 147) by Benjamin Moore.

Here is what the bedroom looked like before.  (My daughter Emily helping me stripe the wall paper.

The colour is starting to brighten up the room already!

Isn’t it amazing? The power of Paint!

The room still needs work with updating some decor but I wanted to show you the difference a little bit of paint makes.

Have you used Woodlawn blue paint in your home?
