New Paint Color for the BedroomThis post may contain affiliate links which won't change your price but will share some commission. Read more here.
My DIY hubby Tim and I have been on a roll since the first of the year. First of all, we reorganized and cleaned out the storage building where our Christmas decorations are stored.
Then we (mostly me) started in on my craft room makeover (see my inspiration here). I didn’t even finish that project before we started in on our bedroom.
We have been in our home for 23 years and have gone from royal blue to tan to this goldish color in the master bedroom.
To fully appreciate this room I have to show you a before picture. The walls were done with venetian plaster, a decorative coating system.
Almost everything in this room was thrifted or given to us. (You can see just a hint of what I’m going to be using for my new bedding.)
I truly loved this paint for about five of the last ten years. It did, however, have the annoying quality of attracting dust that would create a film on top of the paint. Not good.
Y’all it’s been a long five years!
There’s nothing like getting snowed in to start a DIY project!
As always, we go to our trusty BEHR Premium Plus Ultra Paint for the new paint color for the bedroom makeover.
It was so exciting to watch the room change before my very eyes!
My initial idea was to use a darker shade of gray for an accent wall (similar to this one Tim did for our daughter Rachel and her husband).
However, at this point I was not grooving on the accent wall. There didn’t seem to be enough distinction between the two colors.
My husband does NOT like it when his beautiful paint job has a hiccup in it. Me!
So at 10 pm that night we decided to try and rearrange the furniture and see if it was possible to make this small room seem bigger.
Guess what? After 23 years with the furniture in the very.same.spot. we found a solution and a whole new transformation began.
Alas, that did mean Tim had to repaint the accent wall to match the others. Oops. Sorry about that one.
The gray looks stunning and totally changes the feel of the room.
Just for a teaser, this is the look I’m going for in the rest of the room. Doesn’t the gray look amazing?
There are so many projects in this makeover and I can’t wait to show the final reveal!

Super choice, I love the color. Thanks for sharing.
What an incredible transformation (and a very patient husband lol)! I’m moving towards gray these days, too. So tired of the tan/gold thing. I really love the color that you chose and that dresser make-over is pretty fantastic, too!
Hi, Jenna. Thank you so much for the compliment! It’s amazing how the room is changing, mainly with the paint colors. The furniture definitely is amazing!
I too would love to know the name and brand of
the colour. Love the room

Hi Marty…love the grey….it looks wonderful. Would you mind telling me the brand and color??? xoxoxo Christine from Little Brags
Hi, Christine. I just went back and highlighted the paint color to make it more accessible. It’s listed at the bottom of the post: Paint color is BEHR Premium Plus Ultra, Interior Eggshell Enamel, Pewter Mug 770E-3. Have a great day!
Thanks- glad someone asked – I looked at the post 3 times and never saw the paint color….it’s a great color. Would you say your room is bright? or dark?
Hi, Denise. Our windows our small and high up so the room may be a bit darker. But we painted a dark gray in a bathroom with no windows and I loved that as well! It just depends on what look you’re going for. Hope this helps!
I’ve seen the makeover in person — and it is stunning. Such a wonderful change. And contrary to what Laura commented, I don’t think you guys are going to have any trouble figuring out what to do in there. I’m talking about watching “24,” of course!
Girl, we’ve moved past “24” to “The Following.” Although I hear 24 is coming back new and renewed!
This is a lovely color, what a change! Can’t wait to see what is next.
Thanks, Diana! This room has been so much fun to put together, and on just a little bit of money, too!
We are big fans of Behr, as well. Our last house was painted entirely with Behr, inside AND out! Your gray looks great!
We do love Behr, obviously, Kirby. Tim almost always uses them on his jobs unless the client specifies another product.
Marty, I can’t wait to see your bedroom. Wow…long time to have everything the same. You guys aren’t gonna know what to do when you go in that space! 🙂
We didn’t have any spare income for about 20 years so that’s probably why we didn’t change anything! Plus we had no time with raising 5 kids and homeschooling. Maybe that’s why I’m so excited with the changes!
Yes, your room really does look amazing! I can’t wait to see the finished product!
I’m so excited and am so grateful you’re going to help me finish out the room! Love you!
