We Bid Farewell To Our Green And Black Bedroom


I shared this photo the other day in one of my blog columns. We had just given our Home Depot card a workout with the purchase of gallons of paint and primer and painting supplies. Oh, and an animated plush dog that sings an adorable Christmas jingle that we bought for our kids.

The following day we moved almost everything out of the bedroom and started the process of priming and painting. 

We don't typically prime walls before painting, but our bedroom is the exception. 

Let me back up a little bit.

When we viewed the listing for this house back in January, this was one of the photos. It's one of the three bedrooms. The first thing we said was, "This had to be the room of a teenager/young adult."

Later down the road, we learned that was true.

A couple of days later we took a tour of the house. It was love at first sight. We knew this would be the perfect home for our family. 

In the 5 weeks between the tour and closing on our house, the sellers finished the flooring in one of the bedrooms and painted. However, they ran out of time and didn't get a chance to paint the green and black room.

After moving in, we agreed that we wouldn't do any interior painting until the Fall. We wanted to live here for a bit before deciding on our forever colors.

The only thing we did do was rip all the wall shelving down in the green and black room. There was a lot. Instead of throwing the wood away, we repurposed it for birdhouses and a squirrel picnic table

A couple of days ago, we bid farewell to our green and black bedroom.



It was a lot of work, but we are beyond ecstatic with the new colors. We chose a deep primitive Blueprint blue for the walls and Spring Stream for the trim and closet door. 

What a difference!

No more green and black. 

It's almost a little weird not to have the green and black smack us in the face when we walk by or into our bedroom. 

This was definitely one of those moments when we stood in silence for a bit before we gave each other a high five.

The next area that we'll be tackling is the hallway and entryway.

Stay tuned...
