In our “Boy Room Makeover: Before” post we showed you our inspiration to makeover my 9-year-old boy’s room. We used the Sherwin-Williams ColorSnap® app to match a photo we took to coordinating Sherwin-Williams paint colors. This is the photo we used
And we chose the color called SW 6244 Naval. We went with Sherwin-Williams Emerald™ Paint, which is a paint and primer in one with advanced stain-blocking technology. With exceptional coverage and washability, it’s perfect for my kids’ rooms. I already know from experience that it washes up really well!
Back to the room- here’s what it looked like before as a reminder
and what it looks like after
I absolutely love this color. It’s such a gorgeous deep navy and was a perfect compromise to the black he initially wanted.
I was worried about how many coats it would take to make such a dark color completely coat the lighter color, but it only took 2 coats and it’s so nicely even with a beautiful finish.
I love when the sun hits it – a perfect blue!
The whole process from choosing the color using the ColorSnap® app, to purchasing the paint, to actually applying it to the walls was so easy I was just waiting for something to be off (but nothing was). I really loved how well the Emerald™ Paint went on the walls. I kept going back in to check for spots to be touched up and couldn’t find any!
We had a lot of fun adding accessories using the color palette we chose from the ColorSnap® app as well. I love how involved my son got in the whole process. He was super excited to buy his paint and a few new accessories and organizational supplies for his room.
Even though his room is small, I love how the dark color makes it feel like it just keeps going. The way we finally decided to lay out his furniture helped a lot as well!
I definitely recommend checking out the ColorSnap® app when trying to choose a color for your room. Also, do yourself a favor and go with the Emerald™ Paint. You won’t regret the time you save applying AND cleaning up your walls.
