French Farmhouse Bedroom Transformation

From My Front Porch To Yours-  Sherwin-Williams French Farmhouse Bedroom Makeover
The time has finally come! Today I get to share our master bedroom makeover! I have been sitting on pins and needles waiting to share it with you all since it has been completed for a little while. I am really thankful to have been chosen to work with Sherwin-Williams and BlogHer for this makeover. It gave me just the push I needed to get the project done instead of hemming and hawing over every little decision. I am really bad about second-guessing every choice I make and well there was no time for that. It was fun using Sherwin-Williams Color Visualizer where you can "Picture It Before You Paint It." It truly saved me from purchasing a ton of sample paints and putting them up on the wall. As I mentioned in my initial post I decided to use SW 6211 Rainwashed for our bedroom walls. If you missed that initial post and want to see the BEFORE pics and how I used the Color Visualizer click HERE

 Sherwin-Williams asked me to try out their Harmony® Interior Acrylic Latex Paint for this project. It is a zero VOC formula that helps to reduce common indoor odors. It also contains new technology that helps promote better indoor air quality by reducing VOC levels from potential sources like carpet, cabinets, and fabrics. The paint was very easy to work with. I was pleased with how smoothly it went up on our textured walls.

I wanted our bedroom to flow with the rest of our home, so I went with a French Farmhouse theme in here. The planked wall really sets the space off. I am so glad that I was able to talk Mr. Front Porch into helping me complete that project. If you missed how we accomplished the wall you can click HERE.

Accessorizing was fairly simple. I was able to use treasured items like the little clock given to me by my husbands Grandmother. I even found the perfect spot for the vintage cow picture I bought back in November when visiting family in Georgia.

The space looks so much larger now with fresh paint and curtains up. Looking forward to creating a cozy little reading spot in front of the windows.

SW 6211 Rainwashed changes colors throughout the day, which is what I love about the color. Depending on the lighting sometimes it looks blue and then sometimes it looks blue/grey.

I have big plans for the space above the doors. I just need to talk Mr. Front Porch into tackling that project with me which so far has not been easy!;)

Mr. Front Porch had two requests for this project: use any color but green and DO NOT paint the furniture. Mission accomplished. He is just as thrilled as I am with how the space turned out.

One of the splurges I made was to have custom Toile Euro Shams made by my pal Sonya over at Beyond The Screen Door. She does beautiful work and I really appreciate her squeezing me in at such short notice.

This side of the room I am still working on. I am envisioning a custom-made Bed & Breakfast sign and Mr. Front Porch is envisioning a TV! :) 



 It only took 5 years, but we now we have a calm, relaxing space we always dreamed of.

  81. Your room is just drop dead gorgeous!! and that COLOR!!! Oh My gosh, I can tell you that if I win this $50, I am marching right over to Sherwin Williams, and getting myself a gallon of Rainwashed (or something VERY similar) for my kitchen, which drastically needs repainted... I will check the Color Visualizer first to see if that color works with my cabinets and wood trim first, because I made a big mistake last time, and I am stuck with PURPLE kitchen walls, which make my cabinets look ORANGE!!!!! not a good look, LOL!!! I just love your room, and your color choice, love that it looks blue and blue gray and it is such a calming soothing color.

  89. Most of my home is painted with Sherwin Williams paint. I would makeover my son's whole house! He just bought an old farmhouse and every room needs some kind of attention. Paint would transform it greatly. I would start with the master bedroom!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Love it! We just bought a 109 year old house in Ennis Tx. Can't wait to transform it!

    ReplyDelete
  91. Gorgeous room, Pamela, love the planks and the color. I have been itching to repaint my hall bathroom, it is currently dark red and Mr. Exquisitely Unremarkable is not at all excited about the idea of painting white....but I'm working on him! ;)

  92. Lovely! So fresh looking! You have done a great job!

    ReplyDelete
  93. WOW! Lovin' EVERYTHING about this room, it's truly gorgeous! Can I ask a question though?? How are the lovely flounces created at the top of your curtains? Is it a curtain tape or an effect you created yourself, and if so, how did you do it?

  97. That room looks so refreshing! Love the color. I am building a house, just getting started. Looks like I'll be headed to our Sherwin-Williams store to check out the paint and colors. Did you need two coats of paint. Since I will be painting fresh sheet rock I figure I will need two coats.

    1. Zola, we have textured walls so I did have to use two coats. I am guessing though even on a smooth surface you would probably need two.
