we painted our bedroom

The colors are Heaven’s Wind and Mountain Forget Me Not. We used the new No VOC (Volatile Organic Chemicals) paint from Home Depot. It was expensive ($36/gal) but worth it for the safety of our family and house. No harmful off-gassing for us. We slept in the room the same day we painted and it was fine. No crazy paint headaches and feeling high. As you can see, we chose to do some cool color blocks on the walls. I think it came out nicely. The weird thing about the paint is: in natural light, it looks blue, but in the evening, it looks purple. I don’t mind having a purple bedroom because 1. it’s very light anyway, and 2. it’s only the color of the walls. I am staying firm on keeping my camo footlocker out though. A man has to have someplace to sit and put on his shoes in the morning. Sheesh.

    Good job on the painting, the blocks make it seem very peaceful overall….though, the door may need some painting too (maybe a lighter shade). 😀

    Hey DR. I hear what you’re saying about the doors but they are still original wood, only with a dark stain. One of my rules is that I will not paint over beautiful wood. Thanks though.
