The Power Of Paint

I think one of the biggest things you can do to change the look or feel of your home is paint!
I was reflecting back on how our home has changed over the years & paint has definitely been the most dramatic way we have changed things around here!

Here are a few examples:
Our exterior...
This is the "before" when we first bought our home.
Here it is now....
This transformation occurred in a few phases.  
If you'd like to read more about it, you can find it HERE.
Another dramatic transformation was our entry way.
Here is the before...
 I stained the rails a walnut color & my husband added board and batten, which we painted white.
Here it is is now...
You can see the whole transformation HERE.

I also love taking an old piece of furniture & making it new with paint.
I have done this a number of times, but my favorite transformation was my daughter's dresser.
It was in pretty bad shape, but I only paid $20 dollars for it.
Here it is now...
I love how it turned out!
We just recently transformed her whole room with paint.  
You can see the reveal HERE.
The only part of our home that hasn't been painted since we moved in is our main floor.
We will be doing that when they finish our kitchen.
I really want it to be bright and fresh.  
Here are a few of the colors that I'm considering:

This is a paint by Benjamin Moore and it is called Marina Gray...

This one is by Sherwin Williams and is called Accessible Beige.
The trim is also by Sherwin Williams and is called Alabaster.

It is really hard to decide what will look best with our furniture.  
I'm leaning towards one of these colors.
