Little by little our home is finally coming together! Giving each room a facelift with a coat of paint has been the first step we’ve taken towards making our house feel like a home, and while there’s still loads to do with accessorizing, etc., I’m really happy with how it’s finally starting to take shape.
Do you remember the paint that we were living with before? I find that it’s always helpful to see a side-by-side comparison, so here’s a look at one corner of our living room before and after painting (tip: click on the image for a larger view).
A picture really is worth a thousand words, isn’t it?!
As I mentioned in last week’s post, my quest to find the perfect white paint that would transform the hideous high-gloss walls that we had been living with into a soft white space, was made easier with help from Steve, a very helpful employee from our local Sherwin-Williams store. I tested out the white paints that he recommended for us, based off of what I told him I was looking for…and the final color I fell in love with was Pure White. I love that it is bright and airy, but has enough warmth about it to not feel clinical and cold. And hooray…that awful shine is gone!!!
Needless to say, we are completely thrilled with the dramatic transformation that a coat of paint was able to perform in our home. We are going to continue working our way through our home, room by room, until every surface is looking as fresh as our living room now does. Next in line to get the Pure White paint treatment will be our staircase (we’re planning to remove the carpeting from the steps too), and then my office/studio space! I cannot wait!
