home tour: bowchicka bedrooms

Our two bedrooms been the most painted rooms in our house.
Does anyone else do that? Paint the same room two three times?
Home decorating is all about trial and error in my book. It's hard to envision a color on the wall until it's, well, on the wall. So needless to say, I've made a pretty darn good painter out of Shawn.
Actually, he's a damn good painter. His edging is perfect...without tape! I keep telling him he should start a painting business in the summer when he's out of school. He says he would hate painting other people's houses. So sorry, kittens, I get to keep his talent all to myself.

Anyway, back to the home tour.
Hopefully you enjoyed the kitchen and living room yesterday.
One to the second floor - two bedrooms and one bathroom and a good sized linen closet.

The Master
When we first moved in, we painted this room dark brown because it got so much sunlight all day.
That lasted a year or two then I couldn't take it anymore. It was too dark and made the room feel smaller. So I picked one of the 50 shades of gray, and voilá!
I have new wall art to hang to replace what's there now, but we'll see if that even gets hung before we move out. I've had it for six months. And I am always wanting new bedding. You don't even want to know how many comforters I've had on each of the beds. It's embarrassing.

{Our bed frame has drawers underneath which eliminates the need for a dresser and keeps this small room less crowded.}

The Bathroom
This bathroom is connected to the master, but also has a door from the hallway for guests.
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen the before and after pics of this little guy.
These are the after pics. Sorry, my towels don't match. It was laundry day for the towels that are normally in here, but even still, I've yet to determine which color of towels I should get since the makeover. Suggestions?

The Spare Bedroom
Now, this room is where the real magic happens - aka where I get ready in the morning.
Needless to say, I spend a lot of quality time in this room. Hence why it's the room that has changed the most in our house. It's been painted three times. Again, I'm embarrassed by the number of comforters and curtains that have been in this room. It's borderline obsessive.
But I've settled on this and this is how it's staying until we move out:

{We recently moved the bed from middle of the wall on the left to where it is now to open up space for, um...the dogs. They lay in here most of the day when we're not home. I'm not a huge fan of putting furniture in front of windows, but in this case, it's one less window for the dogs to bark out of.}

 photo 093_zpsad551804.jpg
{The top middle drawer of the dresser - which we painted black - hides all my hair products and makeup.}

 photo 096_zps337e6d01.jpg
{My second closet. And my scarf collection, which adds some unexpected color to this room. You can see how I hung them here.}

Have I sold you on renting this place yet?
If not, there is one level left to tour - the finished basement, aka The Man Cave.
And it is a sports lover's dream, especially if you're a Buckeye fan.
More on that tomorrow!

My mom has repainted every room at their lake house more times than would be considered normal. She would paint the entire room, try to get use to it for a week or so then go buy new paint. hahah

I HATE painting. I could quite possibly be the messiest painter ever. My husband is a really painter. He is like Shawn in that he doesn't use the tape and it turns out PERFECT (and he doesn't get it all over himself).

Love the black dresser and I think I have that mirror.

My husband and I hate painting. We purposely bought a house that didn't need much painting right away. Sure the 4th bedroom is pepto pink with a huge horse mural on the wall (and is where my husband gets ready in the morning), but since we don't know what we'll use the room for in 2-3 years (kids?) we didn't want to bother with it now. The 3rd bedroom is painted Ohio State colors with a helmet stripe around the room and a big O on the wall. Luckily we're OSU fans, as are most of our guests!

I hate renting, because I want to paint soooo bad! I told Will that I WILL be painting our next place and we will just have to paint it back at the end. I LOVE that color.
