Kitchen and Living Room paint

I had hoped to keep up with my blog better since we bought a house and potentially had more to write about. I just seem to find myself so busy that I just don't have it in me to blog!!

Quick update: We are moved in, mostly unpacked, and partially painted. We still have SO much work to do!!

We have been here for 4 months and you guys. I. Love. My. Paint. The living room and foyer was originally painted a cream color. The color wasn't bad but we had tons of holes to fill. The lady before us must have taken a hammer and nail and just randomly punched holes everywhere. Ok, that is a slight exaggeration BUT she did make tons of nail holes and all pictures were hung with screws. Head. Ache. Those had to be filled and the walls were scuffed. Plus, as much as I love cream color walls, we had been renting before and the walls were cream and all I wanted to do was paint! I was determined to paint! I was determined to paint grey (even though I was told you should never paint your walls grey because it is a depressing color)!! Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore is the best grey. I love, love, love it!! I still need to buy blinds and curtains for the living room. I also need to hang pictures but I know I am going to love how it's going to look!! I will post a picture once it's done.

As for the kitchen, it was painted a horrible yellow. Maybe the yellow wasn't horrible if you like yellow, I just don't like it on my walls. I am neutral girl. I am still playing with the idea of painting my cabinets white. I think it would look fab with my new BLUE walls!!! I was looking for a perfect non country blue color and I found it!! Windy City by Benjamin Moore.

Below are a few before and after photos. They aren't the best photos but hopefully I can take better ones later!!

Oh!!! And also a special thanks to Anna Martin, Brandon Winston, and Sarah Mapes for all your help painting!!!!
