The Weekend of Remodeling

August 24, 2015

So it's Sunday night and I am extremely exhausted, 
my legs and arms feel like they may fall off soon,
& yet I'm so excited!

All weekend long we've been remodeling our formal dining & living room.
And by remodeling I mean painting, putting up wainscotting, and making it look
COMPLETELY different!

This is how it looked before we started.
Notice the light blue paint I decided was beautiful 6 years ago when we moved in.
Blah...

Note: The wall by the stairs is messed up due to our AC breaking and leaking!
Luckily no mold, but still hideous!

So we decided to go with a mid-dark gray & bright white trim.
It turned out great!
Before I show after pictures, here's the paint color info:

The gray is Dovetail by HGTV Sherwin Williams Showcase paint @ Home Depot.
It's in the satin finish.
The white trim is Foundation White, also HGTV Sherwin Williams Showcase paint
in a satin finish.

Without further ado...

 
This is the entryway. I didn't take pictures of the actual room yet seeing as we didn't finish.
This was a much harder project than we expected!
We decided to do wainscoting on the bottom half of the stairs and main room,
and that's not done yet.
Check back next Monday for the big reveal!
 
And to end on a high note...
Bella was excited to help her Daddy & Grandpa paint!
Well for at least 20 minutes or so!
Happy Monday!
