So, if you’ve followed my blog for a while, you’ll remember that I had a crayon box house. Red, yellow, and now green…. omg… i wished it all away, and it worked. ;D
So today, I want to share with you my bedroom. It was green, and brown. And actually it wasn’t as bad as the other rooms I’ve redone. But after drooling over Anthropologie and Pintrest I was wanting to redo it with something light and romantic yet, I wanted some rustic in there. I still have so many more things I really want to add. But this is the start to something….
So here is before… :p
Well… If you haven’t had a chance to see the transformation of my “red kitchen” click here and read the little story about my lovely taste at the age of 20. haha… Now is your chance. Since that blog, I’ve added curtains, 60′s canisters, we transformed our light fixture into mason jar lights, I added a wine rack, and a 60′s yellow clock! Maybe I should update that blog.
I’ve been waiting for a while to get this room done! And I feel like I’m about 85% complete. I want to get a light fixture, pillows for the futon, and some frames full of my photography. (I’m waiting to see some of my new photos I’ve been taking with film) I’m sure I’ll be switching things around and adding things over time. But here is the basics of what we did. I’m really excited to share!
I think this room was much worse then the kitchen. I don’t know what I was thinking when I painted this place four and a half years ago. But… I’m so glad I’ve changed whatever that was in me. Before the transformation I had a bright yellow room with a chocolate brown wall. (I’m sure if I would have worked on this room It could have been better. But I had no motivation with it looking this color)
So three and a half years ago, Brandon and I moved into our two-bedroom townhouse in Fort Mill, SC. We love this little home. To go with my feisty twenty-year-old personality at the time, I painted my kitchen the brightest red I could possibly find. No one dared get in my way. I was set on red. We would have little parties and invite our friends to “the red kitchen.” In July of 2007, we left our little home and rented it out while we moved to Kansas City. A couple of years later, we decided we wanted to come home. In returning to our home… our kitchen greeted us with a very annoying “please paint me fast.”
So a few weeks back, Brandon and I picked out the new paint for our kitchen and our neighbor painted it for us. (Praise the Lord, oh my soul.) Stonington Grey, by Benjamin Moore.
So below are the before and after pictures of my kitchen. Walking into my newly painted kitchen, I was filled with such peace. I’m hoping to add some yellows to brighten it up a bit.
I just had to share. read more
