Miss G’s bedroom has been due for a makeover for awhile now.
While I have trouble admitting it, she now falls into the ‘tween’ category.
It seems like yesterday that her room was painted an eye-popping shade of lime green…but that was actually 6 years ago! It’s crazy that she was just an itty bitty 4 year old when we put together this room of ballerinas and bubble gum pink accents.
Well, now that she’s 10, she wanted something a little more calming and subdued (dare I say, sophisticated?)…but still girly. I thought this gorgeous colour, Behr Marquee “Ethereal Mood”, would be perfect. I also admit to being seduced by the name. (Do you do that too?!?)
You might remember from one of my earlier posts that I’m a huge fan of Behr Marquee because it’s a one-coat paint. Funny, I always feel when I write those words that there’s going to be a while bunch of raised eyebrows and “yah sures”.
But seriously, it’s true. I’ve used Behr Marquee on a number of projects now, and it’s always lived up to it’s one-coat promise! See Behr Marquee Dayflower: Front Door Update, Nightstand Makeover: Behr Marquee Soft Shoe.
Just take a look at how it covered the green on the first coat!
(In my last post about Behr Marquee, I gave tips on how I get the best coverage from this paint.)
The best thing about Behr’s one coat coverage is that it’s a huge time saver. Let’s face it, painting is a major time sucker, so it you can re-claim a few of the hours, it’s golden. I managed to paint Miss G’s entire room in just a couple of hours. No waiting for the first coat to dry, and then repeating.
We couldn’t be more thrilled with the colour! Here’s a sneak peek at how the room is looking these days with Behr Marquee Ethereal Mood.
I plan to do another post soon with more of her room makeover details and sources.
But for now, just wanted to share how pretty the paint turned out! I love how calm the room feels now compared to before. ‘Ethereal Mood’ definitely lived up to it’s name!

Until next time,
Love the new color! We just had the kids rooms repainted as well. Claire’s was the same green as Gabrielle’s but the paint we used did not cover on the first coat, wish I had seen your post before we painted. Now I am on the hunt for new bedding and accessories and I am anxiously awaiting your post with sources 🙂
Thanks RA! What colour did you paint Claire’s room? Also, you can ask me for sources any time…no need to wait for the post, lol.
