I’m so excited! We have color!!!
I went over to the house this afternoon to see how much progress had been made on the painting and I was excited to see most of the house painted.
I cannot believe how much different it looks and it still has concrete floors! Well I can believe it because I’m a huge believer in changing a room with paint, but to finally see it in this house feels awesome!
Even though the rooms are not done I wanted to give you before and not quite after photos. If you weren’t a believer in paint you will be now!
Master Bedroom Before: purple walls/ built-in vaniety/ mirror.
Master Bedroom Now: Gray walls/ removed built-in and mirror.
Living Room Before: Yellow walls/fireplace mirror
Living Room Now: Gray walls/ no mirror
Boy’s Room Before: Cream built-ins/ cream walls/ carpet up the walls.
Boy’s Room Now: Pure white built-ins/ blue walls/ nothing on the floor yet.
Boy’s Room Before: off white trim/2 inch trim around the floor.
Boy’s Room Now: pure white trim/ 4 inch trim around the floor.
I also picked up a can of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I’m going to use it on my bathroom vanity and a second bathroom vanity because vanities are expensive to replace!
I’m not sure how I managed to dent the can on the drive home, but I did!
Tomorrow I’m going to start painting a few little projects if I can stay out of the way of the painters. If not I’ll have to wait until the weekend.
I can’t wait to take pictures with more light, we have a lot of the lights out right now and it gets dark so early I’m having a hard time getting photos right now. Can’t summer come back?!?!
