I know I have been awful about posting pictures of the house now that we are in and settled, but moving with a two year old when you’re pregnant doesn’t make for a lot of down time and decorating.
That said, as our Christmas present to each other this year, Matt and I decided to get some painting done (as you might remember me mentioning, I basically want every inch of this house repainted at some point – walls, trim, doors, shutters, you name it!)
We decided to start in the kitchen. Even though this isn’t finished yet, because I haven’t finished making the new valances (even though I have all the fabric – I got distracted by the nursery), I still LOVE the change the paint made!
So, here is the first set of house before/afters (with a sneak peek at the valances).
During: (Although the trim already had one coat done, you can see the difference between the two walls pretty well in this picture below. Just for reference – the color of the door is the color of the old trim. The door will be painted one of these days, too! One thing at a time!)
And AFTER: (sort of – minus the new valances) The paint colors used were Sherwin Williams Universal Khaki on the walls and dover white on the trim.
And here is a quick preview at the fabric for the valances – this one is just pinned up there, will have ties, etc…
Hopefully the valances will be finished soon and I’ll have better “after” pictures for you then! With a new baby on the way, though… I’m not making any promises!
