At the end of July Andrew surprised me…. He had a bunch of days off work and on one of them he spontaneously decided to paint our bedroom!

We had already bought the paint, but just hadn’t gotten a chance to paint it yet ….

So I got home around 10:45p …. we watched a TV show…. walked upstairs to bed and as soon as I walked in the room I saw that the far wall was painted (the first coat)!

I *love* it….

The next day (Saturday), he painted the second coat.

The more I look at this color the more I love it.

It matches one of the stripes in the comforter that we have (and will put back on the bed once the weather cools down a little more).

It actually helps make the room darker (and stay cooler) during the day, since that wall is dark now (instead of white).

I also love the way the wood headboard looks against the dark teal.

Next plan is to add some big artwork above the bed. Tentatively planning big canvas prints from our wedding and 5th anniversary photos ….
