I hope you all had a wonderful Fourth of July! We had a blast celebrating at multiple cookouts with friends, family and lots of fireworks. (or bang, bangs according to my four year old)
In the middle of all the festive activities I did manage to squeeze in a spur of the moment painting session, which ended up turning into more painting. It's definietly true what they say, "one thing leads to the next." It all started with me getting the bright idea to paint our atrium doors the same Sherwin Williams Iron Ore that's on our front door and mudroom doors. Although, unlike the other spaces, I wasn't getting excited about the end result. I knew I loved the door color, but something just seemed off. Something had to change and I knew it wasn't going to be the dark doors. It was the walls, they looked horrible against the doors and had to go.
As a reminder, here's what the room looked just a few days ago.
After I painted the doors, I got right to painting over the green walls.
(we are not adding shoe molding until we refinish our hardwood floors)
I absolutely LOVE how this space turned out and cannot believe how much paint completely changed the look and feel of this room. It instantly brightened the space and now the living room and dining room flow so much better. I thought I liked the green, but I really, REALLY like the new color.
As I was hanging this window (purchased from a co-worker who bought 3 off Craiglist for $15.00!) my husband came upstairs and said "I leave you alone for 5 minutes and you start hanging more fake windows on the wall!" Men, they just don't understand.
Since I added the window, my rustic pallet frames got moved to the other side of the wall.
