18 Apr Living Room — Before & After
The living room in our house is one that we really don’t use all that much right now which is why it’s the first before & after I’m sharing because it’s free of toys and can be easily photographed. 😛 However, I’ve found it to be a perfect spot for reading or blogging at night when the kids are in bed.
When we first moved in, the room was painted in a creamy, yellow-y, off-white color and the fire place was in it’s original state from when the house was built in 1983.
Here is the before picture…
and here are the after pictures…
I painted the walls Vapor Trails by Benjamin Moore and the trim Alabaster by Sherwin Williams. For the fireplace, I did a white wash with Annie Sloan Chalk paint which I will talk more about in a separate post.
I am really happy with this wall color. It’s a light, slightly warm grey and I feel like it really brightens up the room.
