Hope everyone is having a good week and a great Valentine's Day!
We have been busy here lately doing some renovations around the house...
This means some new lights, some new furniture pieces, and LOTS of paint
I'll post real before and after pictures, but here are some cell phone pics of the work in progress
New paint color in the guest bathroom
Used to be lime green, now it's Benjamin Moore Brittany Blue
This before picture is really dark but you get the idea :)
And the painting in progress
I love this blue!
The kitchen which was DARK red....
....a little preview of the before
We decided to paint the kitchen Benjamin Moore "White Linen"
4 coats to be exact
Testing out paint colors in the kitchen - we chose the one on the far right.
Painting the trim made the color pop even more
And here is just a little preview of the after
What a difference paint colors make!
*notice our new hutch!!! yay!!!
We also had horrible fluorescent lighting in the kitchen, which screamed 1970's garage (you can see it in the picture above)
We also had a fan in the kitchen, which we never used and it made the ceilings feel really low.
We took the fan out and installed recessed lighting, which has made such an amazing difference!
Here is the work in progress
T was out of town the week this was done. How do men manage to do that?!?
We also bought a new piece for the dining room
Although, I really loved this piece - it was way out of my budget at $3,000
So, I got this, which was much more budget friendly
I think it's perfect for our dining room, which is getting a little makeover as well
All of these changes are making this house feel so much more like our "home" - which is a wonderful feeling. We have lots more to share so I'll keep you posted as more progress is made!
Can you believe our flowers are blooming in February?
You can see our Japanese magnolia through the window! It's in full bloom!
