Painting the Master Bedroom, Part II: Sherwin Williams Colonnade Gray

Before we get to this reveal, let me just say that it's solely based on the paint transformation alone. So please don't judge based on my bedroom styling skills or the size of our humble master bedroom. :)  

Okay, moving on. So for all of you who like instant gratification, here's our newly painted bedroom featuring Sherwin Williams Colonnade Gray! I'm super thrilled with it and when you see the photos of what it looked like before, you'll understand why.

There are some additional before pictures and progress pictures in my previous post, but here's a quick refresher of the chocolate brown walls (actually Tree Branch, an SW color):

Painting the Master Bedroom, Part I: Sherwin Williams Colonnade Gray

The last time I painted our master bedroom (and bathroom) walls was six years ago, in the summer of 2014 to be exact. At the time, I do recall being happy with the chocolate-y brown Sherwin Williams Tree Branch and Tavern Taupe colors that we'd chosen. But as the years have gone on, I've become increasingly turned off by the dark walls, especially since we don't have a lot of natural light in the bedroom (and virtually none in the bathroom). I'd rather be eating chocolate than looking it at on the walls.

These pictures were taken a few years ago after I got a new duvet cover, and before I had painted the trim white in the bedroom. But you get the idea of how dark and cave-like cozy the room is, especially with the dark furniture too.

The ceiling had been painted Tavern Taupe, which was slightly lighter than the Tree Branch on the walls.

Last summer, I almost got the motivation to repaint the bedroom (and bathroom) all again. I even painted a few color samples on the walls. Then, I just couldn't make up my mind and eventually lost the motivation altogether. Honestly, the thought of repainting everything again was overwhelming, and I felt too busy with work and other things to deal with it.
