The one day bedroom makeover

Do you ever just get sick of the sight of something? This morning I looked at our maroon bedroom walls and decided I couldn't stand to see them anymore. So I did what all good renovators do - I painted my bedroom on a whim.

The maroon was awful. It made the room so dark and it didn't go with anything. It was made even worse because I actually chose this colour when we moved in more than five years ago. But if truth be told I hated it almost as soon as it was done. It was a massive mistake and I learned quickly never to try to copy a magazine design without really thinking about it first.

I've added some before and after pics below. I can't get over how nice it looks all white and I'm questioning why I didn't do this years ago. All in all it took about 5 hours, which is pretty good for such a dramatic transformation.

The power of color :). It's the fastest pick me up you can find in the decorating world. Lovely job.

It looks lovely and peaceful. Isn't it a great feeling when you just get up and do something that's been on your mind for a while? X

Such a transformation! It really breathes new life into the room. And as you say for a few hours work.
