Good, Bedroom, Best

Good, Bedroom, Best

I liked two things about Leslie’s before bedroom here. The giant mirror and the trey ceiling. Luckily, they both stuck around for the big redo. Not that the ceiling was going anywhere, but it looks even cooler in the after. Or should I say warmer? I’m a firm believer that bedrooms shouldn’t be blue, because brrrr!

Check out more from Leslie on her blog DIY Diaries.

And here comes another bedroom makeover from Better After reader Shelly who finally reclaimed her bedroom after living with an olive green color that she hated for too long. One time I painted my bedroom a color that I hated. It lasted for 30 minutes. Life is too short to hate your bedroom!

It’s now a gorgeous gray with a lot of Shelly’s DIY touches to – sorry to sound like Randy Jackson – really make it her own.

    Thanks for posting our transformation Lindsy! The colour is Benjamin Moore’s “Chelsea Gray” … It’s a very ‘warm’ gray.
    Thanks so much everyone!

    Feng Shui say; no photo kiddies in bed sleeping place. Feng Shui also say; what the heck old fat Buddha know anyways?

    Ohhhh, is that toilet paper roll art on the wall. I’ve seen lots of cute tp art lately. Who’d have thunk it? 🙂 Love the re-do.

    I love that cut out ceiling, and you are right about the color warming it up.
