Living Room & Guest Bath Reveal

We have been back in our home for about 2 weeks now.  It has been crazy busy to say the least!!  I painted BEFORE we moved back in, and the house is starting to come together.  If you are a new reader here, here is the story behind us moving back into our home : ).  The living room started out a wine/burgundy color.  When we first built the house back in 2005, I LOVED this color so much.  I really wanted to brighten things up dramatically.  It took 1 coat of Kilz primer and 2 coats of Benjamin Moore "Glass Slipper" to do it.  It was a pain, but definitely worth it.


Here are a few shots of the entry way.  Because it is 2 stories, we hired painters to paint this! The color before was a darker carmel-tan, and again, I wanted to lighten it up.  I chose Sherwin Williams "Urban Putty".  I really love it.  It is the perfect sandy-neutral beige that I was hoping for.  It has grey undertones.   I am on the hunt for a new rug for the entry way.  I also want to hang curtains above the door so we can close them at night and have a little privacy!



Here are some shots of our newly painted guest bath.  Before, it was a dark green.  Again, at the time, I loved this color.  But, when we moved back in, we realized how DARK it was in there.  It is hard to tell in the before picture, but the old paint was a much darker color.  I painted the bathroom and our back hallway in Benjamin Moore Woodlawn Blue.
