Hey friends! Happy New Year! Popping in real quick to give our first master bedroom update.
A few weeks ago we were at my friend Meg’s house, and I fell in love with her open concept living room/kitchen wall color. It was the perfect shade of true timeless gray, and she thankfully rounded up the name of it for me – Sherwin William’s “Dorian Gray”.
I knew this color would look great in my bedroom, so after receiving a SW gift card for Christmas, Jamie ran over there a few days ago and picked up a couple gallons on Dorian Gray in a satin cashmere finish.
My sister offered to roll while I cut in, and (no kidding) we had the entire room prepped, painted, and put back together in four hours. Maybe a few minutes less.
Side note: This is the only room in the house (well, and the attached master bath) that already had white trim. I’m thankful I could skip the trim work for this update!
Since this color is darker and the cashmere finish is thicker, we quickly realized that a second coat wasn’t going to be necessary. All we did was go back and touch up areas where the yellow peeked through.
Hi! I’m Erica, and I absolutely adore sharing my life on this website with you! I come here almost daily to blab about all of the things related to being a regular wife and mother in today’s ever-evolving society. I share about our new home, what’s on our kitchen table, what we’re hanging in our closets, where we’re traveling to next, my crazy 5 a.m. work outs, how I make time for girlfriends, our faith, and much more. We always have a lot of balls in the air and somewhat thrive on the chaos. I believe in the power of story-telling as a form of inspiration and entertainment, so I’m here to do both! I was born and raised in north Alabama and recently re-planted roots here again after my husband transitioned out of the Army (he is now in the Reserve and it’s going so well!) I’m a super proud mom to two little girls (ages 5 and 2) who seem to be the stars of the show around here (for good reason – they’re pretty great!) I’m so glad you found me and are here reading! I hope we can get to know each other here on the blog as well as Facebook and/or Instagram. xoxo
