We are finally winding down on the Before & After Series.
We moved into this house a little more than a year ago and have been updating what we can without getting into major demolition mode. Just by using paint on these upstairs bedrooms’ walls, we’ve made a drastic change. Here are these transformations. For the Before photos I’ll be showing the rooms as they were listed on the MLS when we purchased the house.
Any chance I get to show off this dresser that I painted years ago I take it
WHAT WE DID
These rooms were all painted with a warm gray/taupe color, Sherwin Williams Alpaca. It is a very warm color that I just love. As with all paint colors, it will read differently in each room, especially since each space has different sun exposure. This color works in each of these rooms with their different lighting situations. We didn’t want to paint the trim at this point, but some rooms had a shell white, and some had a bright white, so the paint color needed to work with both trim colors without making the shell white look yellow. This color was the winner.
We removed all curtains that were left by the previous owner, but kept the blinds, as they were all Hunter Douglas, and just needed to be cleaned. The rooms all look fresh, updated, and inviting.
This concludes the Before & After Series of this house. I hope you’ve enjoyed it. It’s amazing what can be done to update a house without getting into a big remodel just by using paint, wallpaper, and artwork. Updating the hardware on all of the doors, and adding window treatments in some areas helped give the house a fresh look.
