Room Updates

First post for miss&murphy! Woot Woot!

I moved home in August to prepare for some foot surgeries that I am having.  I figured it would be better to be in a comfortable home with family around to help me during my recovery struggles.  I just finished the first surgery and my leave from work.

This has been my view during the leave…

Fun stuff, huh?

So before my surgeries, I knew I wanted to update my bedroom.  It’s the same bedroom I’ve had at my family’s home since we moved there before I started first grade, and it has had the same paint since high school.  I knew if I left it how it was, I might start going crazy.  First step, changing the paint.

I was starting with a bright yellow, and I was ready for a more neutral color.  I have been loving greige, grey, and black walls, and decided to go with “Morning Fog” which is part of the Sherwin Williams and Pottery Barn paint line.

It surprised me how tough it was to paint over the yellow, since the grey was darker than I expected.  Ended up taking me 3 coats to cover the yellow.

I will be posting the After photos soon!  I have a few more projects to complete before the first unveiling.

First, my new dresser!  As great as my armoire was for storage, I am trying to get the most use out of my closet, and I just don’t need that much extra storage. I ordered a Target Threshold Windham Accent Cabinet in Red.  This should give me a little storage, and I plan to style the top with a lamp and my jewelry.
