One Sunday afternoon a few weeks ago, I made my way down to Home Depot and brought home several small jars of paint and a paint brush. I wasn't sure what I wanted to paint, I just knew I wanted some color in our bedroom and bathroom (to start) and eventually (as in,maybe summertime) the rest of the house. I marched inside with my three colors and splashed them up against one of our bedroom walls. The goal was to live with the colors for a few days and go from there. Ironically, of the three, we only chose one and made a bold move with an accent color purchase without testing it first!
Over two weekends, we tackled the bathroom and bedroom. It feels like a brand new space and we love the two new rooms. But, after staring up at our bedroom walls for a few nights, I felt the need to push further. The first two rooms were easy enough how hard could the rest of the house be? With President's Day off, I started to bring the color into the living room. I quickly discovered that this was going to be no small feat whatsoever. At some spots, the ceiling is nearly 20 feet!
I decided to attack this space in small chunks and am now about 80% done! I have one stairwell wall and the south living room wall (it's the biggest one) left to go. Other than that, that's it! I can't believe how much our home has changed as a result of a simple, soft color on the walls. Check out our pics below. Keep in mind, when these pictures were taken, there was a lot of stuff still "under construction" and I am not in my finest blog photo attire. :)
