A Quick Before & After

PicMonkey Collage

Call me the worst blogger ever, but I still have not revealed the huge paint makeover project that I worked on this past spring. We painted our entire open living area from the entryway to the kitchen {including the entryway, living room, dining room, kitchen, & laundry room!} Well, it made a huge difference in our home. Before it was a lovely gray color, but it just didn’t work in our home. That before photo was taken a few years ago in our living room. It was too dark & I wanted to brighten and freshen up our home. The after photo was taken a few months ago. The creamy white color used is quail egg by valspar. It’s the perfect creamy white that has no pink undertones. I will do a full before & after very soon. But for now, this is a tiny corner of the house, that is ever changing. & here is the space exactly how it looked today…

uncleaned & how it was setting when I found it. I actually sat and stared at this corner for a long time today brainstorming what needed to be changed & I came up with a few new ideas, one of them being getting rid of the chaise lounge… stay tuned for updates on the living room coming very soon & for a full before and after paint reveal!

    I am in love with the throw blanket in the bottom picture. I was wondering if you could tell me where you purchased it. Thank you

  2. I’m so happy that you “listened to your house” and painted it such a fresh warm colour. It’s so refreshing that someone hopped off the gray wagon. You are right that gray is lovely but not everywhere and not for everyone. It looks beautiful.

  3. Love the new colour! I am all for the creamy whites :)

    If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can suggest?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any support is
    very much appreciated.
