Update with Ryan's Room

There are still a few things I plan on adding to Ryan's room, but we recently repainted his room so I'm excited to show you how it's all coming together.
First, the previous colors weren't terrible. For any other room they probably would be fine, but the lighter of the two colors honestly would make me cringe a little each time I walked into the room.

I took some "before" pics of the wall color, but had a hard time capturing a representative photo. In real life it read really green. 

Here are the not-supposed-to-be-so-green walls. 

P.S. I still need to paint those doors.

Do you see it? Ya, I know, you all probably think I'm crazy but trust me, it was too much of the wrong green, like a little girls' room green. So we needed to fix it. 

Here is the room newly painted. {Sigh} I love the change. Again, we have two colors (above and below) one just a little more saturated that they other. They are both light gray with a hint of blue. The paint colors are, top: Polished Silver, bottom: Stone Mason Gray both by Valspar that we had color matched at SW. I find the room much more calming and better suited for a boy.

    1. Thank you. I found the nightstand at Goodwill and then made a number of changes to it. I'm kicking myself for not taking a "before" picture as it was quite different.
