Master Bedroom "Before" Pics

Whew! I made it!! I am now a resident of Illinois!! :)
What a week!

Hubby and I got the keys to our new house last evening, and today we spent the day cleaning and cleaning and cleaning (!)
and painting our master bedroom!

Above and Below are the
"Before" pics:

Ok, I told you this house was going to need some decorating help! :)

Notice all of the peachy-orangey-brown paint. It's much yuckier looking in person, let me tell you.

Our moving van arrives tomorrow, and our bedroom furniture is SO heavy that it was really easier to paint the room now, before the furniture gets here.

Well, it's now the most lovely shade!
Can you guess what I went with??

I'll show you the "After" pictures nest, oops, I mean NEXT time!

Hi Stacey,
I actually just returned home from being in Illinois visiting my parents. I am an Illinois girl. Are you looking forward to the fall and winters again? Illinois is a lot like Ohio, we have beautiful falls!!

Can't wait to see your new bedroom and everything else!!

Oh yes, you must post before and afters of everything as you go. How interesting for us to see the progress.

Also, My family is from Illinois and I have wonderful memories of my visits as a child to my great grandparents house.

Hi Stacey! Welcome Home! So glad you and your family made it safely. When we moved out here to Illinois, the hubs and I closed on our house a few days before the furniture came too. We needed to do lots of painting too.
I am thinking the new bedroom color is a beautiful shade of at a spa.
