Freshly Painted Garden Shed

Freshly Painted Garden Shed

The weather cooperated and last weekend David painted the garden shed!!!  It’s all done now, and I love how it ended up. The trim color is called “Tempered Sage” by valspar and we picked it out because, well, it was on the same paint chip as the main color we chose.  And the contractors were...
Hallway Refresh

Hallway Refresh

We’ve made some much-needed changes to our hallway! The very first thing we did to it was replace the ceiling two winters ago because the old one was sagging and probably going to collapse soon.  Then we took down the wallpaper (gag me with a fork) and had the floors and steps refinished when they...

8 Tips for Painting Your Home

Hi all!  Our friends over at Modernize.com (if you haven’t been to their site, worth checking out!) helped me out by writing a very good post about painting.  This is by Jane Blanchard for Modernize!!  Thanks so much Jane. Slapping on a brand new color to the exterior or interior of the home is a...

Painting the Family Room- Part 3

Hi everyone!  Here is the “after” for the paint in the family room.  Remember we chose between these colors?   And the final verdict was C2’s “Shine.”  Then our family came and painted most of the room for us!  (Thank you again for that!!) They did most of the work but after they left David primed...

Painting the Family Room- Part 1

    Remember a while back when we were deciding on a yellow paint for the family room?  I blogged about it back over the winter and asked for opinions! I am pleased to say we finally decided on a yellow: C2‘s Shine!  (In the top picture, it’s the second from the left… closer to the...
Master Bedroom = Painted!

Master Bedroom = Painted!

It’s days like these that I realize how blessed I am. Two of my aunties came over and spent the night.  In just over 24 hours, with the help of my mom who was here most of that time, they organized our study (aka “clutter room”), organized/ cleaned our dining room, took off the wallpaper...
Priming the Master Bedroom

Priming the Master Bedroom

Our sweet friend Lizzie came to visit us for a weekend, and you won’t believe what she did when she arrived! Not only did she bring me a delicious Ritter Sport chocolate bar from Germany, but she primed our ENTIRE master bedroom. The walls soaked up a whole gallon of Mythic Paint primer (meaning I...
Painting the Nursery- A Family Affair

Painting the Nursery- A Family Affair

We’ve been making progress in the nursery and I’m so excited to share with you! Above is the guest bedroom we decided to convert to the baby’s room.  It’s the bedroom furthest from the master bedroom.  The only changes we made to it when we moved in was replacing the ceiling fan with one that...
Picking a Yellow Paint

Picking a Yellow Paint

Poor husband didn’t know there was more than one shade of yellow.  (I’m going to blow his mind later in life when we start to figure out a good white paint color for the master bedroom.) So when I decided I wanted to paint our family room yellow, he just sort of assumed we’d head...
Edging Without Tape

Edging Without Tape

We decided to paint all the beadboard in the kitchen green, including the bottom half of the walls: I don’t know if you’ve ever painted a chair rail like the one above the beadboard shown here, but it usually requires lots and lots of painters tape.  Our friend Heidi (yup, same one who made the...
Yes It Goes On And On My Friends

Yes It Goes On And On My Friends

Our lives are pretty boring these days– all we do is prime or paint! In the above photo you can see the primer we’re using on the walls/the two unpainted ceiling beams (why leave two of fourteen unpainted?  We’ll probably never know).  It seemed perfect for us because it’s water based but it also adheres...
Historic Virginia Paint Colors

Historic Virginia Paint Colors

I’ve decided I want my kitchen to have the color green in it.  (If you know me well, this is hardly a surprise because green’s always been my favorite color.)  I feel like green is a good color for a kitchen because it is fresh but has the ability to be both energizing and relaxing....
