I was pretty much burnt out with painting after we bought the house and I literally had two days to paint every wall. Needless to say, it has taken a while to get the DIY energy back up. However, a few days ago I decided I could no longer stand the look of the “mud room”. It was the only room I hadn’t painted because, well, its the mudroom. But suddenly I couldnt stand the yellow walls and I decided our shoe bench needed a face lift as well. (It was brown and cream before) So I lightened the green I used in the kitchen for the mudroom walls and I painted the bench with yellow and white stripes and coral on the inside (the color of our bathroom). Now the room has a lighter beachy feel.
It is important for you to know that I rarely buy paint for these little projects. I mix colors, lighten colors, darken colors, etc. I challenge myself to make my existing paint colors work together to get the general look I am wanting. (And also, I am lazy and want it done NOW!)
Here is a dresser Phillip picked up several weeks back
I finally got around to painting it today
Here she is all gussied up
And distressed of course 🙂
