Ashes (See Jane Paint)

Behr Paint and Primer in Ashes, PB bedding, Homegoods striped pillows, and Skyline headboard
As you may know, I painted my room a couple weeks ago and while doing so, learned a few things about myself in the process.  First, I need to work out.  I made a few rolls with the extended roller and Eric decided that he could push harder.  He could and he did...time to get back to the gym.  Next, I'm more of a 'paint the trim' kinda gal.  I have more patience when it comes so small nooks and crannies, so the trade-off worked out well.  Lastly, I'm a pretty good taper and I really enjoyed doing it.  I may never know why I found it so therapeutic.

Although I painted, please still consider this photo a "before" shot.  I plan on doing a little more decorating and will be sure to share an "after" (so far I have a bed, dresser, night stands...yeah, that's it).   Also, the lighting makes it look a bit taupe-y here, but I assure you it's very gray.

Also, be sure to enter the Soc Chic giveaway which ends Friday (click below).


  1. I love the gray! What a great shade for a bedroom. And I too tend to be better at brush-painting little nooks and crannines.

  16. You can tape for me anyday, I'll paint! LOL Looks great, can't wait to see more!

  17. Look at you! I'm impressed with your painting skills. I hope to one day soon, live in an apt / house that I can paint! Looking forward to seeing the "after" photo ;) although I think it's looking pretty great so far!

  18. I love it and can guarantee you that painting is a lot more fun than 5lb weights. Especially since a 5lb weight can hit you in the head on the way back down. Not pretty.


  19. Hooray for us painting ladies! I've painted my room last week too ^^ my wrist still hurts, I had to do it all by myself, haha ^^ x

  20. This may be a "before" shot, but the room's looking awesome so far! Love the wall color and all the bedding. Can't wait to see the "after"!
