Green Be Gone

As a family we like the color green just fine. Nonetheless, having a majority of the main floor of the house being a bright shade of green didn’t suit us very well.  Among some of the first projects in the house were replacing the green color of the hallways, living room, master bedroom and master bath.

Living room/entry/stairs before:

After: We had the dry wallers paint the vaulted ceiling walls while they were here painting the basement – (money well spent in my opinion!)

In addition to the large swaths of green that we covered we chose to refresh a few of the other colors in teh house that didn’t quite work for us.

Sherman Williams Majolia Green – yes, we took a room that had no green and added a green accent wall – totally different shade though!



Guest room before (I actually didn’t mind this color, I just didn’t want it in the guest room)

We still have a lot to do in these rooms, but there is never an easier time to paint as when the rooms are empty (and you have really generous parents who come to stay and help)!

In addition to tons of grandparent help, Nora even chipped in (for a brief spell) helping grandma in the guest room:
