Blue Monday... Before and After...

I first redecorated our bedroom a few years ago... I painted it a pretty dark gray-blue to keep it "masculine" for my Ricky... and he likes Blue.. it's his favorite color... I already had Navy Blue lined draperies that once hung in the living room... and then I found great Blue ticking roman shades at Pottery Barn Outlet on closeout for $10 each!
But lately... I've been wanting to lighten up a bit... So I first considered repainting a lighter shade of blue..
and then I found these...
After...
Even Ricky said it made the room feel so much brighter and bigger..
So here... the After...
Still pretty and Blue...
Still using my Blue ticking Roman shades...
loving my Blue Bedroom...
Down here in French Lique...

I'm joining Sally for Blue Monday...
stop by and see who else is showing off their Blue!
