Master Bedroom

What better way to spend a 4-day holiday weekend than to repaint another room in the house. No seriously. Our master bedroom was last painted...umm..a lot of years ago. So time for a re-do.

When this room is done, the entire upstairs will be in good shape, and then I will move on to some of the first floor rooms. Office. Dining room. Living room. Family room. Basically everything but the kitchen. Then the basement bedroom. Then...

Anyway...old master bedroom walls in a pumpkin-ish orangey-brown. Ceiling already re-painted. Patched areas primed. Edges cut-in. Ready to roll the first coat.

The first coat of Medici Ivory. A second coat to come tomorrow.

Also very happy with the new triple window.

So the 4th of July will be a second coat of wall color on the two walls, two coats of baseboard trim paint on those two walls, and that will be enough for the day. The window has already had two coats of new trim paint, so at that point the ceiling and two of the walls will be completely done. All that will be left will be to do the two other walls (I have intentionally split the room into two halves, as far as planned effort goes - the second half will likely be next weekend, or maybe nights this week).

As with the other rooms I have done over the past year or so, it feels good to freshen up things. We have now been in this house twenty years, and too many of the rooms were last painted quite a while ago. I want to fix that. It feels good.

In the not-too-distant future...the finished product.
