ROBIN'S EGG BLUE AND BLACK AND WHITE BEDROOM

By Karin Brosnan - Monday, June 30, 2008

As you all know I was gone for a week at Girl's Camp and while I was away my hubby surprised me by painting our bedroom to match our bathroom!! Oh yea!! I was thrilled when I opened up the door to our bedroom and saw the beautiful robin's egg blue covering all our walls. He is one amazing man I must say! I love surprises like that. He did the guest bathroom about a year ago and surprised me with that too. I tried to to surprise him by painting our bathroom but as you may remember I threw my back out and couldn't finish it so he ended up having to do it. He did a good "while you were out" for me. Now I just have to decide what I want to put above our bed. I used to have lots of family photos there but I want a more clean look. I think I will put the photos on the other side of our bedroom around the armoire and maybe just one large black and white photo above our bed. I will keep you posted. I have attached before and after pics.

This is the before that had yellow walls and lots of photos above our bed. I did like this look too but I think I want just one thing above my bed this time.I also found this photo....this was the before, before picture. This looks more country to me but I liked it too. Yes I know what you are all thinking...she changes things all the time. Yep...I do.... but for very little money! 1 gallon paint for the bedroom, my mom gave me the black and white comforter cover in the above pics, the flowy white curtains and rods were from Ikea (CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP), Spray painted the furniture black and cheap black frames from Walmart! Let me know which room you like best. Karin :)

  2. You are such a lucky woman! I wish Peter would paint my house for me... well I guess that is near impossible since we rent but you get the idea. He did surprise me with a clean kitchen today, that was really nice!

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the turquoise!

  3. I love the black and white with the blue--it's the same as my room! I'm finishing up a mini re-do (and getting my blog back up and running) so I will post you pics when I do. I have more that I want to do now that I've seen your take on the same color scheme!

    THANKS!

  8. Love it! Love the blue! While Cameron's mom was staying with us, she commented to Danielle, "your mom has decorated very nicely, but the place really needs some color." So very true.
