Painted it White

This month has been a bit of a whirlwind on the home front because we finally pulled the trigger and hired painters to take our house from beigey-non white to white!! When we originally moved into this house I was thankful the walls were light and all the same color. It was definitely a vibe we could work with, and considering I was 7 months pregnant at the time I was happy to leave it be at least for awhile. However, as room after room began to take shape, I found myself growing increasingly annoyed with our off-white background. The mudroom was the final straw. We were so excited about the progress we were making on this remodel, but it was SO hard to take progress pictures. The hallways itself was already dark, and even after we changed out our garage entry door to one with glass, those pictures were blah because of the creamy trim around our pretty new blue door. We were over it so we decided it was officially time to go white. Once we wrapped up the actual build of the mudroom, we made some calls, got some quotes, and decided it was worth it to hire someone to do this big job. I have to admit it was a hard pill to swallow, seeing as how we know we are more than capable of painting, but we knew it would take us weeks to accomplish a task this big with a little Croix-Boy running around, so we decided it was worth the investment.

So...the game plan was all walls, trim, ceilings, stair rails and treads on the 1st floor + the stair hall and upstairs hallway were to be WHITE. Benjamin Moore's White Dove OC-17 to be exact.

The crew showed up and in a matter of minutes our house was covered with plastic. It looked like a scene out of Dexter, but to me the whole scene equaled PROGRESS, so it was all good with me. It took the guys 2 1/2 days to get everything completed and one quick return trip to get a few odds and ends tidied up and they were done. It was as if they were never even here, well, except for the fact that now our walls were white! A crisp, clean, beautiful white.

Here's a little preview.....

I know this is only a tiny peak, but oooooh the difference. Makes my heart AND eyes happy!
