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 a proud Army wife and mom to two little girls (ages 1 and 4), and I love sharing our lives with you. I blog all about motherhood, our time in the military, our travels, our meals, my fitness journey, my fashion favorites, and so much more. I truly enjoy sharing it all! I can’t get enough of birthday cake ice cream, weekend sunrise runs, or making my girls belly-laugh. I write almost daily about my family’s lives, and though I like to keep things light, I also share the messy parts too. Welcome! So glad to have you around. I’m active on Facebook and Instagram and would love to communicate with you there!
