The Big Reveal, We Have Painted!

For the past week and a half we (and by we I mean Joe) have been painting. Finally!!! I am just not a white walls person, as hard as I tried to be for 2 1/2 years. I love color, the warm, rich, earthy colors. So we chose our colors and got to work. I DID help with moving every darn thing out of the rooms and you that know me, know that is ALOT of stuff! I also put it all back when we were done. But Joe was up and down on a ladder 1,000,000 times....and with a bad hip. God bless him!!!! So, here we go with the tour. Starting at the front door. The color is TAN even though it appears to have a greenish tint in some of the pictures....It is Valspar Faint Maple.



 There is another picture of this area further down that shows a truer color....

 This wall behind the mirror shows a truer color.... the hall is still white.....for awhile:):)
 2 of the walls in the living room are this. It is Valspar Toffee Glaze.  The other wall is the Faint Maple. It is HARD to get a good picture with the sun glare.

 I LOOOVE it!! We also can't believe  how it brought out the colors in the stone. Before the stone appeared very gray.





 We also did the breakfast room and I will share that in another post. The color does NOT make the rooms appear smaller at all. They feel so warm and homey now. We truly are HOME! You get a tiny glimpse of the breakfast room in this next picture, but I will share it all next.

I will be sharing this at these great parties:

  12. It looks great! I'm with you, not a fan of white walls. I think it makes the crown molding just blend in with everything. I don't find that the "darker" colors make my rooms feel small either.
