Bedroom Update!

I have been  working on changing our bedroom up a bit. I decorated the switch plates that you can see here. I painted the room and with the help of Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint I switched out the gold accents!

Here’s that gold mirror that I have had for years.

Curtain rods that have been hanging around for years as well.


After! That chair is there to help me hang those curtains. I really want a chaise lounge chair for that corner! Love that ORB on the curtain rods and the mirror trim.  The room is almost done with just a few more decorative touches but take a look at this….

The paint color before! Paint makes a huge difference! I used the Behr Premium Plus Ultra. It is a paint and primer in one.  Love that paint! It took only one coat to cover this dark red. It was $32 for a gallon and I used 1 whole gallon and less than a half of another. Good deal!

I love the warmth of the new color. It’s called Peanut Butter. There is more work to be done but it’s all good!



  1. Oh the power of paint! We had a similar color on our bedroom walls and lived with it for 3 years before toning it down…similar to your new color! Looks WAY better! Great job!

  2. I love the mirror and te curtains they are gorgeous. And the bedroom is huge! Mine is about quarter the size of that!

  3. Wendy, use the Behr Premium Plus Ultra. I was dreading painting over the red also because I thought it would be such a long process. It only took less than a couple of hours to paint the entire bedroom with the Peanut Butter color.

  4. Your windows look great!

    And thanks for the paint tip. Our master bedroom is currently a dark chocolate brown and if I ever get a free moment I’m thinking about painting it. One reason I hadn’t done it yet is because I was thinking we’d have to primer it first.

    The mirror looks great in the darker color too! You did a great job!


  1. […] again! Still a few more touches to go on the bedroom. You can see some of the other bedroom changes here and […]
