Ok, things finally calmed down enough this weekend for me to get a photo taken of the living room with it’s new paint.
The painting wheels stated rolling when I was going through my Living Room Pinterest board and realized that almost every photo I have saved included rooms with either white or soft gray walls. So I asked myself, if that’s the look I’m loving so much, why am I trying to make things work with a wall color I’m not hip on? So, paint I did!
Here’s the old paint color. It doesn’t look as yellowy in this pic as it does in person.
Then there was the icy blue paint fail. Look how dirty the switch plates look – yuck.
And here she is in her new color! Went with Benjamin Moore’s Revere Pewter.
The one (and only) thing I miss about the old color is the contrast it had with the photos. But, I’m so happy with how much brighter the room feels now.
I’m now working on taking it through the entire main level (entry, dining room, kitchen) and up the stairs. Quite the job to take on half way through a pregnancy. Getting up and down a ladder is more difficult than I thought.
Here’s a little peek into the mess that is my dining room.
Everything has received a new coat of paint in here, including the ceiling. Now I’m working on getting the bottom half of the wall ready for some molding.
I’m so freaking pooped people!
Anyone else in over their head with projects lately?
