Weekend DIY Bedroom Makeover

Silke and I thought it was time to re-do our bedroom.

We love DIY projects and thought it would be fun to celebrate the 1 Year Anniversary of living in our home by finally redoing our bedroom. We went from a cake yellow room, painted ceiling to floor in the same color, bedroom to a three tone natural looking and relaxing room.

After much debating we decided on our color choices: Earthy Green Tones

We painted the ceiling Alabaster with Cricket Green walls and Aligator Skin Dark Green sponged accents.

At the same time we took off the window frames and discovered that there was no insulation between the sheet rock and windows. Thank goodness for Great Stuff, a bit messy but it should do the trick. We always felt a draft on cold nights and I’m sure we will notice a big difference next winter.

To complete the project we found a new bedroom ensemble. The colors match perfectly with the walls and pulled the whole room together. Our next DIY project will be to re-cover the head board with new fabric. Silke already picked it out.

What do you think of our new bedroom? Leave us a comment below.

DIY Bedroom Make-Over Project List:

1 gallon & 1 quart  of Behr Cricket Green paint, leftover Alabaster paint from a previous project, 1 quart of Behr Aligator Dark Green paint, a 14 in 1 tool, 2 cans of Great Stuff, a splatter roller, a regular roller, a paint brush and 2 rolls of painting tape plus a 14 piece bedroom ensemble.

Now it’s on to the next DIY project.
