Painting Update

Hello there! Figured I would pop in for a quick update on the house. I wanted to share the before and after pictures from the 3 bedrooms we painted a few weekends ago. We are so lucky to be part of an awesome church small group and they all volunteered to help us paint! As Matt & I are pretty much amateurs when it comes to painting (and really most house-related tasks), we were quick to take them up on their offer. Their expertise was really appreciated in not only painting but also picking out what paint and supplies to purchase. But enough words, here are the pictures!

Welcome to the blue room. Eek. So bad. Thankfully only 2
walls were like this; the other 2 were white like the ceiling.
This is the pink room. It's hard to tell because of the light,
but it's a pretty Pepto Bismol shade of pink.

And the tree room. It wasn't that the tree was bad, we just didn't really want it.

So our first step was priming. This was after 1 fairly heavy coat of primer in the pink room. We definitely did another coat 
This WAS the blue room. It is now our guest room. We
selected Pussywillow by Sherwin Williams.
Used to be the tree room. Look- no more tree!
And now no more pink! 
I apparently need to work on taking better before/after pictures at the same angle, but I'm learning. At least you can see that the color is MUCH better in all the rooms. We move in to the house in a couple of weeks and we can't wait!

  1. The tree room wasn't on the MLS website; I kinda liked that tree!! But it's good to see how much progress ya'll have made, and I'm looking forward to seeing your house in person -- and ya'll, too! Love, Paula
