Let’s Change EVERYTHING!

Although I love my little house, since buying it, I’ve realized that there are a lot of things that I want to change. Mostly…everything.  🙂  Most of the interior paint colors are very dark.  While dark colors can be chic, on cloudy days, I felt as though I was living in a cave.  😦  And the previous owners did a sloppy job of painting.

So the first room I wanted to tackle is the living room.  The picture above is the BEFORE picture.  Below is the AFTER.

Huge difference!  It really brightened up the space!

The room in the distance is my kitchen.  That will be the next room to paint.

The living room flows into a hallway that leads to the bathroom and bedrooms.  I had to decide how FAR I wanted to go with the painting.  Below is the hallway BEFORE.

The hallway goes down and then turns to the right toward 2 more bedrooms.  Below is the AFTER picture.

I decided to go just as far as the first bedroom before the hall made that right turn.  I figured that was a good place to stop.

Every room needs to be repainted.  Seriously.  EVERY room.  I hate the flooring in the kitchen and bathroom.  It’s way too dark.  Almost black.  The bathroom walls all need to be resurfaced.  So that whole room needs an update.

That’s what I meant about changing Everything!

There is still a LOT more to do.  But I sure feel good about what I’ve done so far.

Thank you for joining me on this journey! ❤

    When we moved into our current house the back ( north facing ) bedroom was dark blue – it took three coats of yellow to make it sunny! Well done with alll your painting, it does look good.

  8. That’s made such a huge difference. Full mirrors do a good job at expanding the space. The create an illusion of a bigger room.
    Good job with painting 🙂
