So I have a little secret. Nothing major, but it is a something that I’ve been keeping from you guys—well those of you that aren’t on twitter;-)
I’ve been painting my entire downstairs!
I’ve been doing it alone and it has taken a lot of time and it has been keeping me away from a lot of other important things like blogging and…BLOGGING! Anywho, I wanted to share with you how I decide on my paint colors
I sample paint everywhere in the room! I skipped priming the wall in the second picture because I was able to see the true color on the wall leading up the stairway. The lighter color is Tony Taupe and the darker is Virtual Taupe both by Sherwin Williams. I chose the darker color (Virtual Taupe) for the living room and for the dining room. As far as the kitchen and family room, I painted those Accessible Beige. Here is a peek at the family room before I finished painting it
The family room was originally painted Sensational Sand by Sherwin Williams, but it was a little too dark for the space. My family room and kitchen is in the back of my house so I needed a light color to brighten up the two spaces.
Now, as for my kitchen cabinets, I will be painting those again too. They will be painted the same color as the trim which is Aesthetic White also by SW . Oh and yes, I will blog about that process although it won’t start until after the holidays;-)
So, there’s my secret. I’ve been painting! I’ll show you the space SOON!
AM I THE ONLY ONE CRAZY ENOUGH TO TAKE ON A LARGE PROJECT BEFORE THE HOLIDAYS?
