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…

Painting Progress

Our painter has made a ton of progress in the last couple of days. The final coat has been put on the family room and it’s completely done now with the exception of a couple of places that still need touching up. The color we chose called Nuthatch. It’s a Sherwin Williams paint and the…

The painter started in our sun room and master bedroom today. I was shocked by the amount of progress he made while we were at work. He got a coat of tinted primer on in the sun room. It’s such a huge improvement over the green! It’s only about a 75% tint, so the color…

Painting Starts Tomorrow!

Our painter stopped by yesterday and he’s ready to start painting our master bedroom suite and sun room tomorrow! He’s going to paint the trim in our master bedroom and bathroom the same shade of white as the rest of the house (it’s a more yellow-y shade now) and the walls are going to be…
