Painting, Painting, Painting

I have been greatly remiss in responding to comments this week. The fact is, at the end of every day, I’ve been to tired to think, much less respond coherently! And here is why.

Daughter #2 is here and she is great at DIY projects. She volunteered to help me repaint the family room/kitchen/hallway this week. It was a huge job and I could not have done it without her. Here is a look at the before color:

And here is after.

The color of the side walls is called Revere Pewter by Sherwin Williams. The blue wall is League Blue by Nautica. My theme was inspired by this sign, a gift from Daughter #2.

This will hang above the windows on the side wall of the family room.

It is really difficult to get a good photo of this room.

The kitchen is the same gray as the family room.

We painted the ceiling and trim in these rooms as well. I’m so sore! But now the fun part begins. Decorating!

Have a great weekend!

    it looks great! I have a horrible time choosing paint colors and I can paint but I hate to and it takes me forever – that reaching above me is the pits – causes a lot of neck strain for me – glad you had help

    Hi Katy,
    Wow – what a lot of work. Such high ceiling you have which make it all the more work for painting. Rest those arms and take Advil. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. That is so much work, with so many achy muscles, but oh so rewarding! Love the navy blue wall! I know you will do a beautiful job on the decorating too! Enjoy!

    It looks wonderful! My oldest daughter is my helper when she comes to visit! Have fun with the decorating. Hugs,

  5. I like the new look. That was a big job. Many hands make light work, as they say.
