Oops I Did It Again…

I played with your heart! Got lost in the paint! Oooo baby, baby! Just having a little Britney moment over here. You were all so kind and encouraging when I posted about how I was already repainting… after living in our new house for only 3 weeks. Fail. But seriously. Thank you. You guys rock. You inspired me to power through my failure and pick up a paint brush again.

Oops I Did It Again... Gray Painted Great Room

Anywho, this last week we took 2 days and repainted the living room and kitchen. And all I can say is holy wow. I am in love with the gray we picked! It is perfect! It is exactly what I envisioned for our space. No more suspense. We went with number 2 – a beautiful gray with a touch of warmth. It is called Sparrow by Behr.

Just as a reminder, here is where we started. When we moved in, our entire home was painted a carmal-y tan. Then we painted the entire great room a light blue-gray. We weren’t impressed and didn’t love it. So we decided to repaint. Go ahead… scroll up again to see the difference. The new gray is much richer and warmer. It is fantastic!

And here is the view of the entryway area. You may notice that the bottom 2-3 inches of the wall is not painted. That is because we have plans to beef up the baseboards soon. So why waste my time cutting in?? It’s going to be awesome. 😉

I am seriously loving how my white curtains are popping against the darker walls! Before they just sorta blended in to the pale gray. Now they have such great contrast! {p.s. more on the curtains soon!}

And finally, of course, the kitchen. Again, all the white is looking awesome with the darker gray. It makes me so happy! I was all worried that despite my work to pick the right color that I wouldn’t like it again! But I am so thrilled that I love it! No more repainting for me! I am so done painting at this point.

How about you? Are you working on painting any rooms right now??
