Our home-painting masterpiece...sorta

I finally got around to uploading some work-in-progress pictures of our house. We've painted the living room, dining room and kitchen. I LOVE the way the colors turned out. Painting was a giant PITA, but I'm glad we did it. It makes out house feel more like our own. We're about 80% unpacked, but I'm missing a light fixture in the dining room and have yet to hang any pictures on the wall. I wonder how long it'll take me to get around to that..

Living Room after...the green is Cavern Moss (Pittsburg Paints) and I have no clue what the neutral color is, but it's also by Pittsburg Paints

Kitchen before (view#1)

Kitchen after (view #1) The fridge didn't change colors, I swear, it's just the lighting!

The walls are a little darker than this picture shows...I'm in love with the color!

We're eventually completely re-doing the guest room (ripping out carpet and replacing windows) but that won't be for a while...our next "big" project will be refinishing the walls in the stairwell going upstairs and replacing the flooring on the landing upstairs. I'm going for new hardwoods (it's only about 5x8 area) and Keith is pushing to just re-do the planking flooring that's already there...we'll see how that goes! :)


  1. Looks fantastic!! Love the green! Excellent choice!

  2. We've been in our house almost a year and still haven't hung anything on the walls....
