Comfort Gray in the Kitchen

You guessed it, I painted the kitchen. Again. Yes, for the fifth time in two years. 
Don't get me wrong, I loved the Kensington Green. It was a beautiful colour but I craved something calmer.

I ended up painting it SW Comfort Gray. It feels so much more peaceful now.

I will admit that I still have some other things that I'd like to do in here. But none of it is necessary right away.

It is so much lighter and brighter too. With the long, cold and dark winter that we have had this year, that is a must.

I HATE those bulkheads. I have some ideas on how to hide them. But the hubby isn't on board yet. One day....

On the wall above the buffet, I am planning a command centre. It will have the cork board, and some metal wire file holders. I need somewhere to corral all the kids papers and our bills and things. I just need to find them.

Here's where I am going with this kitchen:

Master Bedroom Makeover Ideas

I should start out by saying that I have started to re-do our bedroom several times in the last two years. My husband rolls his eyes when I mention anything about out, he is sick of it. But it has never felt right and I am determined to fix that.

This is what it looked like a few months ago. It was just a bunch of things from other rooms in our old house. 

The bedroom set we bought for our last house. I never liked it and I am not sure why I agreed to spend money on it.

I was going to sell the furniture and start over. This morning Aiden broke one of the slats on the foot board. Now it's the perfect excuse to get rid of it!

I haven't decided if the night stands will stay. I feel like they are too short and dark. But I need to see how high the bed will be once we have a metal bed frame (I want an upholstered head board).
I have other night stands in the basement. They are tall and skinny but they need to be painted something lighter first.

Two weeks ago I re-painted our room Sherwin Williamns Comfort Gray (mixed at Lowes).
I love it, it's the perfect colour.

So here is my Master Bedroom Mood Board for my ideas.

What do you think?? I think it can be done easily! I already have the red table that I will use to do my make up. We need to make a head board. The night stands need to be painted. I already have the bedding.
Hopefully I will start making some more progress on it soon!!
