Bedroom Before

So readers, if there are any of you out there, I write this blog with great pride.
I have now painted a wall in my first apartment.

We only painted one wall in the bedroom, but I think I want to do the rest.
Our original idea was to do an accent wall in each room. (It would have been cheaper, it would be easier and much less to paint over when we move.) At this point, I think we should just do it! It went a lot faster than I thought it would and I am super excited to make my home!
Oh and we have small walls. :)

The color we chose was Behr's Ultra Premium (low VOC) Plum.
(Link is to a site with the "Top 10" best low-no VOC paints. Behr is not on there, but still good and in our price range.)
This paint was fantastic for numerous reasons.
The fumes were MUCH, MUCH lower, the paint was easy to wipe off of our wood floors if it dripped, we didn't have to use a primer, and by God it's gorgeous!

Below are some pictures of our bedroom before we painted. Another post will follow with the finished wall.
