Bedroom Redo Phase 2

It's amazing what a difference a $25 gallon of paint can make. As much as I love the color of our master bath, I knew I wanted something a bit darker for our bedroom. I choose another greige color, about 2 shades deeper than the Valspar's Oatbran I used in there.
Before:Builder-grade SW Balsam Bark in flat finish
During: One wall complete with Sherwin Williams' Modern Beige, color matched to Kilz Eggshell premium paint. I have used every brand of paint out there and have to say that I love Kilz. It's one coat guaranteed coverage is no joke. It goes on smooth, even and gives great coverage. I'll be using only Kilz from here on out.

After: Love! The fresh, greige color brightens the room up tremendously. I wanted to create a calm, peaceful master suite and this gray color is the perfect blend of cool and warmth.

Can't wait to share pics of my new DIY headboard and artwork. Coming soon:)

  1. I love the new paint color, what a difference when it is right up against your old color. I can't wait to see the rest of the progress, looks great so far!

  2. Hello. Are you sure it's called Sherwin Williams "Modern Gray"? I can't find that color anywhere. Or is it Modern Gray? I love it whatever it is. Looks great.

    1. Hi Missy! Thank you for the kind words. Yes, the color is Modern Gray. Here is the link to it on the Sherwin Williams' website: http://www.sherwin-williams.com/homeowners/color/find-and-explore-colors/paint-colors-by-family/SW7632-modern-gray/
      Hope that helps!
