Bedroom Makeover

Shane and I are back on the house decorating bandwagon. Woo hoo! We spent this past weekend painting our master bedroom, installing a new ceiling fan, and hanging our TV. Let's take a looksie:

If you recall, this room had one full wall of ugly wallpaper, and then a border that went all the way around the room. The ceiling fan hung down more than 19", which was basically like having a third...very dangerous being..in bed with us. The walls were a dirty ivory color, and the ceiling was an even dirtier white.

The color is Behr's Verdigris (in the Ultra Premium Plus line of colors). The ceiling fan is a low profile, so no more feeling like we'll be decapitated if we accidentally sit up in bed while the fan is on. We still need curtains (since I hate blinds!), a new bed skirt (in white), some lamps for the end tables (I want to do something with a bold color base, like orange, dark coral, or yellow...but we'll see what I can find), and some art for the walls.

Here's another view.

On the bigger dream to-do list, we'd like to change the wood floors to be a darker color and change the trim in the room (and the whole house...ugh!) to be white. For now, I think this is way better than what we had!

Oooh, this is 10 kinds of awesome. I love the paint color, love the lamp base colors idea, love the new fan. What a difference some paint makes to a room!

How tall are your ceilings? I'm shopping for a new fan for my office downstairs with 9 ft ceilings. Should I be considering a low profile one?

Love love love the after. Even the fan (which I dislike in bedrooms) is gorgeous. The low profile is very nice. I personally am a fan of the floors. They add a warmth. Wall color...fantastic! Great job!
