We decided to finally get our main floor dolled up with some new paint, so I thought I’d share a few more before and after pictures. I need to put my wide angle lens on my camera, so these pics aren’t great, but they’ll give you an idea of the transformation…
Here’s the kitchen ‘before’ –
We removed the chair rail, painted the trim and painted the whole room in Para Paints Eggshell Sarah Richardson Collection in the ‘Retreat’ color. Here it is ‘after’ –
Here’s one beside the window –
I really wish it was in the budget to replace those dingy old venetian blinds, but alas, that’s not something we’ll be changing in the near future (or likely ever really).
Last week, my dad was over and working hard to get rid of all of our wall sconces and replace them with ceiling pot lights (aka recessed lighting). We still have to do the front entrance, but the one in the living room and the ones up the stairs are gone.
Here’s a before –
And here’s the ‘after’ –
Here’s a bit more of a peek at what the living room color looks like –
It’s Para Paints Eggshell from the Sarah Richardson Collection in Pebble. We’ve also painted our front entranceway this color, and I think our office is destined to become this color as well (it’s the last room to paint!!).
I’ll do another ‘before and after’ of these areas (as well as the front entranceway) as soon as I get some better pictures.
