Master Bedroom Renovation Challenge: [Stage 6] Priming & Painting

Catch up on the renovation progress! 

Hello peeps! Our master bedroom is really beginning to take shape now with a paint color on the walls other than orange and yellow!

Here’s a quick before of the bedroom with the drywall up and the former orange walls:

Now with paint!


As mentioned in the previous post, we went with the same color as our living room, Benjamin Moore’s Chantilly Lace in the Natura line (unlike many paint brands, a true low VOC paint – read our review of it here). Just as it worked marvelously to bring out the stained trimwork in the living room, it makes quite a difference in the bedroom as well, not to mention making the room look even larger.

The “spare oom” that we’ve been working to turn into the master’s walk-in closet was also transformed from a yellowish green to the Chantilly White as we plan to eventually bring in dark wood built-ins for the clothing racks and storage.

You can also tell from the closet pix that we’ve been playing a lot of “musical rooms” with moving things from one room to another as we’re able to, heh.

Next up is the tearing-up of the carpet and sanding, installing a threshold in the new doorway, and staining and finishing of the original hardwood floors. Big projects. But basically after that it’s a matter of adding back the trim work we took off and…dare I type it…we’re approaching the home stretch to being able to move into our master bedroom!

Now if only I could have some stroke of luck finding “THE bed” on Craigslist… 😉
