Painting the Foyer

It’s been about 3 1/2 years since we moved in to our house and today the last of the flowered teal wallpaper came down! When we moved in, there was teal wallpaper (with small flowers) in the sun room, teal wallpaper (with large flowers) in the dining room, and a flowered teal wallpaper border in…

Paint, Lights, & Tile!

Even with the short week last week, there have been a lot of changes in the new entry way space recently, so I figured it was time to post some more pictures! Early last week, the painters finished applying the primer and first finish coat of plant on all of the interior walls.  In the…

Entry Way Project Update

The new front porch and entry area has really started to take shape in the last several days.  It’s looking so different now, so I thought it was time to post some updated photos. Last week, several more coats of primer and paint went on the exterior of the new entry way addition and the…

Even though there hasn’t been a lot of progress made on the entry way addition in the last couple of weeks while most of the efforts have been focused on finishing the new driveway before the weather turns cold, I decided last week that it was time to start thinking about paint colors for the…

Painting the Dining Room

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been working to paint the dining room (finally!)  It’s taken a lot longer than I expected, but I’m really happy with the way it’s turning out. I love the color gray we finally decided on for above the chair rail.  It’s Sherwin Williams Pavestone (SW7642).  I was a little…

We took the wallpaper down in the dining room over the weekend and now I’m trying to pick a paint color for the walls.  I’m really struggling with it because the colors look so different on the walls than they do on little paint samples.  We think we’d like to paint the room gray, but…

We’ve been talking about taking down the wallpaper in our dining room since the first time we walked through this house with our real estate agent.  I’ve been struggling with the decision of what to do with the walls after we remove the wallpaper, so we’ve been living with it for the last couple of…

I always seem to struggle with picking a paint color from the small samples you get at the paint store.  Once I pick one, it seems to always happen that it looks so much different on the wall than it did on the sample.  More than once, I’ve wound up re-painting the room because of…

From the first time we walked through our house before we bought it, we’ve never really been fans of the green floral wallpaper and matching curtains in just about every room on the main floor.  Last winter, we started removing the wallpaper on the main floor when we  redecorated the sun room, but the dining…

Painting the Powder Room

Last weekend, we decided to start again on the project of removing all of the wallpaper in the house by focusing on the main floor powder room, which had an ivy wallpaper above the wainscoting.  The pattern wasn’t one that we found very objectionable in comparison to some of the other wallpaper in the house,…

I’ve been a little delinquent in posting, but the project to paint our master bedroom is finally done! It took the painter nearly a week and a half to finish, with most of the time being spent in the master bedroom suite. Here are some before and after photos. Before After All in all, we’re…

Bathroom Paint is Done!

The painter finished up with the final coat in the master bathroom yesterday. Here’s a couple pictures of what it looks like now: The main wall color is a Sherwin Williams color called Sand Dune. It’s the same color that’s in our guest room and living room and it’s also going in our bedroom. On…
