Boys bedroom updated
Our youngest two boys received a mini makeover in their bedroom by updating their paint and carpet last week.
The carpet replacement was planned. The fresh coat of paint wasn’t exactly planned but we learned a lesson the hard way. Don’t paint one boys room unless you have every intention of painting the other boys room.
Mom, that’s not fair, why does he get new paint and I don’t
Mom, I really like the color grey too
Mom, my room looks babyish with the green

OK, we will paint your room gesh.
When they replaced the carpet last week we had to move all the furniture out and to save money we ripped out the gross carpet ourselves. So we quickly went to work painting the lower half below the chair rail a beautiful shade of Revere pewter by Benjamin Moore.
This was the easiest paint color I have ever picked out, you know why? My girlfriend had purchased it in the wrong sheen for her house and said, here take it! It matched up perfectly with the sky blue, easy peasy! (have no idea what color we used, sorry)
Somehow without planning it out everything tied itself together on it’s own.
And the after, crazy how a coat of paint can completely update and modernize a room instantly. Most importantly, the boys are happy!

It is amazing how something so simple can change the look of the room entirely. The grey is so soothing!

I like that Revere Pewter Kristin! I think that is so sweet that your boys love and appreciate their newly updated room. Their room look great!
It looks like it’s straight out of a model home. Nice.

What a fun room for your boys! What a difference this pewter color made!! BM Revere Pewter is one of my fav colors!
I am loving the clean crisp look of your boys room. It looks inviting and warm. Thanks for sharing! Pinned 🙂
It looks really good with the Revere Pewter!! I’ve pained my living room and hallway that colour – isn’t it beautiful?? I like how it changes with the light – cool. Your boys room looks great, love it!!
I love it all, esp. those beautiful window treatments…I bet the boys do too. Now pass me a gum ball.
